Bethesda has just revealed the official PC requirements for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. According to the company, PC gamers will at least need an Intel Core i7-3770 or an AMD FX-8350, 8GB of RAM and an  Nvidia GTX 770 4GB or an AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB graphics card.

What’s really cool here is that Bethesda has also listed the target resolution and framerate for both the minimum and recommended specs. Players with PC specs similar to the minimum requirements will run the game with 60fps on Low settings at 720p. Those with systems similar to the recommended requirements will run the game on High settings at 1080p with High settings.

Bethesda has also listed the advanced graphics settings that will be available on the PC version. These are:

  • Lights
  • Shadows
  • Directional Occlusion
  • Reflections
  • Decals
  • Motion Blur
  • Image Streaming
  • Volumetric Quality
  • Decal Filtering
  • Deferred Rendering
  • Chromatic Aberration
  • Depth of Field
  • Resolution Scaling

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be using the id Tech 6 Engine and according to executive producer Jerk Gustafsson, it will support the Vulkan API.

“We’re also taking full advantage of Vulkan, allowing us to push improved performance across the board in ways that simply weren’t possible before. The minimum hardware requirements are set to ensure a high-quality experience, and with Vulkan players should see solid performance on a variety of system configurations. However, if you’re aiming for 1080p with high framerate and settings, you would need to bump towards our recommended specs.”

From the looks of it, the PC version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will run great on the PC. The game releases on October 27th, and below you can find its full PC requirements.
