Bethesda announces system requirements for The Evil Within

Bethesda has revealed the PC system requirements for The Evil Within, although the company chose to only release the recommended specifications rather than letting users know what bare minimum hardware they will need for the upcoming horror title.

Bethesda stated on its blog that it doesn't have a list of minimum requirements and has instead opted to only list recommended specs to ensure players get the experience that the developers intended:

“We do not have a list of minimum requirements for the game. If you’re trying to play with a rig with settings below these requirements (you should plan to have 4 GBs of VRAM regardless), we cannot guarantee optimal performance.”


“These specifications are listed as “recommended” as they are the settings we’ve determined ensure that your gameplay experience plays as intended by the development team.”

To play The Evil Within ‘optimally' you will need:

  • 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 8.
  • Intel Core i7  CPU with at least four cores.
  • 4GB of RAM.
  • 50GB of free HDD space.
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 with 4GB VRAM or equivalent.
  • “High speed” Internet connection.

The Publisher also notes that the 50GB free Hard Drive space requirement is just for the install, once that's complete the game will only take up 41GB of space. The Evil Within releases on the 14th of October.

KitGuru Says: Those are some rather high and specific system requirements. I wouldn't worry too much about the VRAM requirement though, chances are if you have a 3GB GTX 780 or 780 Ti or even one of AMD's 3GB 7000 series cards, the game will still be playable. Are any of you guys looking forward to The Evil Within?
