With Outlast 2‘s release date slated for next week, the developers at Red Barrels Studio have decided to give PC fans a heads up as far as what kind of components are needed to run the survival-horror title, as the company has now officially released the minimum and recommended specifications required to play the game on the platform. With this being the case, PC players have a decent amount of time to get their rigs up to snuff should their computers be lacking in the hardware department.

As it happens, the system requirements for Outlast 2 on PC don’t appear to be too demanding, for it only takes a GPU with 1.5GB of VRAM in order to have the game running at optimal visual conditions at 1080p and 60 FPS. Of course, as seen in the full set of specs below, should there be fans out there with lower-end rigs with 1GB of VRAM, the survival-horror release can still be played, but the title will definitely take a hit in terms of resolution and frames-per-second.

Minimum:

  • OS: Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10, 64-bits
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-530
  • Memory: 4GB RAM
  • GPU: 1GB VRAM, Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 / ATI Radeon HD 4870
  • DirectX: Version 10
  • Storage: 30 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • Additional Notes: Targeting 720p @ 30fps

Recommended:

  • OS: Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10, 64-bits

  • GPU: 1.5GB VRAM, Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 / ATI Radeon HD 7850
  • DirectX: Version 11

Should there be fans out there wondering whether or not Outlast 2 will be a day one purchase for them, there’s plenty of footage on the Web to wade through in order to get a better idea as to what the game’s all about. For instance, not too long ago, Red Barrels Studio sanctioned the release of gameplay video containing 10 minutes of action from the title, showing some of Outlast 2‘s beginning, its horror elements, as well as its exploration and survival aspects.

Of course, rather than simply watching Outlast 2‘s contents, fans can actually get a hands-on experience of a brief bit of the title’s offerings ahead of its launch next week for a more comprehensive understanding of its gameplay. Several months back, Red Barrels Studio offered up a demo so as to let fans scare themselves out of their wits with a short fragment of the survival-horror title. Taking all of this into consideration, one can only hope Outlast 2 lives up to the hype as one of the most anticipated games of 2017 when it comes out next Tuesday.

Outlast 2 is set to release on April 25, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
