After months of silence Soviet-themed Atomic Heart shows signs of life

It's only the PC system requirements however

The promising immersive-sim Atomic Heart just got a new piece of information. Sadly, it’s not a new gameplay video or interviews though. Instead, we now know how powerful your PC has to be to play the game. Yes, we’re talking about the official PC system requirements.

The last time Russian game developer Mundfish talked about their game was almost half a year ago. Back in August of last year, gamers were greeted by a lengthy piece of gameplay footage that showed a mini-boss.

After so much time, we of course would prefer to see and learn more about Atomic Heart itself. Alas, we’ll have to do with the official PC system requirements for today. At least, it’s a sign that despite the radio silence, the development behind closed doors is still progressing. Otherwise, this update wouldn’t come either.

DSO Gaming discovered that the Steam page of Atomic Heart got an update. As mentioned, the system requirements, in particular. On that point, the game seemingly won’t be asking too much of your hardware. Even the recommended specs are pretty light compared to other visually impressive titles. Here they are:


    • OS: WINDOWS® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-BIT Required)
    • Processor: Intel Core [email protected] or AMD FX [email protected]
    • Memory: 6 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 (3 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4GB)
    • Storage: 22 GB available space

    • OS: WINDOWS® 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-BIT Required)
    • Processor: Intel Core [email protected] or Ryzen 5 [email protected]
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)
    • Storage: 22 GB available space

In case you haven’t seen any gameplay footage of Atomic Heart. For a self-published game by a rather unknown Russian developer, it features a quite sophisticated technical make-up. As such, it’s nice to see that PC gamers won’t have to break the bank to enjoy it comfortably.

Atomic Hearts targets PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
