The Windows PC version of Tango Gameworks' survival horror game The Evil Within may require a video card update, if you want to play "as intended by the development team." While publisher Bethesda Softworks hasn't published a set of minimum specifications for The Evil Within for PC, it did share "recommended" specs today.
One recommendation that's surprising some PC players is the video card spec — a GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4 GB of VRAM. For players trying to play The Evil Within with hardware settings below the below requirements, Bethesda says it "cannot guarantee optimal performance." That's similar to the language used when Bethesda announced the recommended hardware for Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Here are the recommended PC system specs for The Evil Within:
- 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8
- i7 with four-plus cores
- 4 GB RAM
- 50 GB of hard drive space
- GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4 GB of VRAM
- High speed Internet connection
- Steam account and activation
On consoles, The Evil Within requires 40 GB of hard drive space on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 it requires 7 GB of storage. More details are available at the Bethesda Blog.
The Evil Within comes to North America on Oct. 14.
