Surface Pro runs Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and many more

surface_pro_tablet_windows_8

I’m a little behind when it comes to technology but in my mind tablet gaming is all 2D and avian-themed. It’s quite surprising, then, to find that Microsoft’s Surface Pro is able to run games like Alan Wake, World of Tanks, and Dawn of War II. That’s phenomenal. The list I’ve pasted in below is lengthy and packed with games I would have expected to be far and away above the specs of a tablet.

Check them out for yourself.

Now, these are all games that meet or exceed the stated minimum system requirements. In many cases the tablet is actually able to better the recommended specs, suggesting that you should be able to play the games at a fairly good level. With the tablet’s micro-HDMI and USB port, I hope it’s possible to plug this into a TV with a gamepad hooked up because that would make the the £570 tablet a little more appetising.
