    I own the late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro with upgraded graphics, with the specs:

    2.3 GHz Intel Core i7

    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB + NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB

    Given the minimum and recommended requirements:

    Minimum
    Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
    Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
    8 GB RAM
    30 GB free HDD space
    NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent

    Recommended
    Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
    Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent
    8 GB RAM
    30 GB free HDD space
    NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent

    I've already got a Windows 7 Bootcamp partition, I just wondered if someone could tell me whether I'll be able to decently run the game before I go spending my money?

    Thanks in advance!

    Luckily your 750M is actually more powerful than the Radeon radiators in the new rMBPs. However the performance of your GPU is still 25% under the minimum recommendations (GTX 550 Ti), so if you'll be playing it, don't be optimistic with smooth performance on anything other than the very lowest settings.

    As such, the £50 or so you'd be spending on the game may be better saved up to buy a console.

    TL;DR: it won't decently run it.

    From what I've seen, it'll run alright at 1440x900 and Low/Medium settings. Maybe 30-40 fps.
