Optimize your Nazi-kicking performance.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on PC: Here's The Recommended Specs

Today, Bethesda revealed the required and recommended hardware specifications for the PC version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. There was also specifics revealed on graphical options, including a field of view (FOV) slider, ultrawide monitor support, and an uncapped framerate.

Check it out:

Minimum Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 / AMD FX-8350 or better
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB / AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit)
  • Storage: 55GB

Recommended Specs:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 / AMD FX-9370 or better
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB or better
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • OS: Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit)
  • Storage: 55GB

Bethesda took note of additional requirements, like Steam and a broadband internet connection for activation and installation when compiling these specs, so it shouldn't be an issue for those skirting the line on one of the above requirements. They've also noted that new AMD GPU drivers for Windows 8.1 will not work, but that's not a concern for most Wolfenstein fans on PC.

As mentioned earlier, the graphics settings menu for the PC build will have plenty of customization. Three colorblind modes (protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia), an FOV slider that ranges from 70 to 120, and support of ultrawide 219 aspect ratio. Of course, it also supports the standard 16:9, 16:10, and 4:3. It comes with four anti-aliasing options: TAA, FXAA, SMAA, and TSSAA. There are also more subtle adjustments in the advanced options:

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

The game was built with the Vulkan graphics API, which Bethesda specifically said the AMD RX Vega was specifically optimized for. It was also announced today that the game will not feature multiplayer, as it would be "Diluted" by such a mode. Bethesda is also quite proud of its anti-Nazi message in Wolfenstein, with their VP stating that it's "disturbing" that Wolfenstein II can be considered a "controversial political statement."

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches October 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
