Alien Isolation system requirements outed


Total votes: 65

How good will your PC need to be in order to run Alien: Isolation when it's released this October? Not that powerful, if you don't mine running things at the lowest settings. If you want to at least hit the recommended level, you'll need a fair chunk of RAM and a graphics card from the last couple of generations, but it's still not too hectic.

Minimum specifications are:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 (32bit)
  • Processor: 3.16Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
  • RAM: 4GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 35GB required for installation
  • Video Card: 1GB DirectX® 11 (AMD Radeon HD 5550 or Nvidia GeForce GT 430)

See, that wasn't so bad right? Even the recommended specs shouldn't make you spit your tea out:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 (64bit)
  • Processor: AMD: Phenom II X4 955 – 4 Core, 3.2 GHz or INTEL: Core 2 Quad Q9650 – 4 Core, 3.0 Ghz
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 35GB required for installation
  • Video Card: 2GB DirectX® 11 (AMD GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series or Nvidia gpu: GeForce GTX660)

Ok so you'll need to have spent at least a couple hundred bucks on a GPU in the last year or two, but 8GB of RAM is peanuts these days and if you're gaming on anything worse than a Q9650 it's probably time to upgrade anyhow, or you might need to hand back your master race card.
