You’re going to need a better rig to play The Witcher 3

, | News

CD Projekt RED has published the system requirements for the PC version of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt. The game will take up at least 40GB, and require DirectX 11 and a 64-bit Windows 7 or 8 operating system, which isn’t crazy for a modern game, but the rest of the specifications may call for some upgrading.

Minimum System Requirements
Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz
AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660
AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
RAM 6GB

Recommended System Requirements
Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3.4GHz
AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4GHz
Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770
AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
RAM 8GB

For comparison, the average gamer’s system according to Steam’s hardware survey has a 2.3 to 2.69GHz processor, and 1GB of video memory. Of course, you can always opt to play the game on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 if your PC isn’t up to snuff. The Witcher 3 is scheduled to launch on May 19th.
