The Evil Within – Minimum PC Requirements Revealed

After the controversy surrounding the surprisingly high PC Recommended Requirements for The Evil Within, Bethesda decided to also share today the PC Minimum Specs required for running it. As the team noted, with this setup PC gamers won’t be experiencing the game at 1080p and they’ll likely need to turn off some features, but they will still be able to have a great experience with the game.

Bethesda suggests at least an i7 or an equivalent 4+ core processor CPU for its upcoming horror survival game. Wait what? An i7 is the minimum CPU requirement for The Evil Within? Hilarious stuff (though we do have to say that the minimum GPU requirement is acceptable this time around).

The Evil Within releases on October 17th, and below you can find  the game’s minimum requirements.

Minimum Requirements
•OS: windows 7/8.1
•GPU: GTX 460 or an equivalent 1 GB VRAM card
•CPU: i7 or an equivalent 4+ core processor
•RAM: 4 GB
•HDD: 50 GB
