Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is set to launch in just under a week as the second installment to the modern retelling of the classic franchise. Players will play as William J. Blazkowicz, protagonist of the series and stone-cold Nazi-killer, as he fights to free the German-occupied United States. In order to get that far, however, they will first have to ensure that they can actually run the game.
According to Bethesda Softworks, the (amusingly named) system requirements for PC players are as follows:
“Can I Play, Daddy?” (Minimum Settings)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better
GPU: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better
OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
“I Am Death Incarnate” (Maximum Settings)
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770/AMD FX-9370 or better
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB/AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB or better
OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 64-Bit
A recent article from PCGamer reveals the addition of a number of PC-specific settings, including the ability to adjust:
- Directional Occlusion
- Motion Blur
- Image Streaming
- Volumetric Quality
- Decal Filtering
- Deferred Rendering
- Chromatic Aberration
- Depth of Field
- Resolution Scaling
While Wolfenstein 2 has generated a disturbing amount of controversy lately due to its extremely anti-Nazi sentiments, the title is nonetheless highly-anticipated for fans of the last game. Wolfenstein: The New Order ended with Blazkowicz mortally wounded with little chance of escaping the blast radius of incoming allied bombs. From what we could tell of previous trailers, The New Colossus will take place shortly afterwards, and will once again feature the now heavily-scarred Blazkowicz as he teams up with old friends, forms unlikely alliances, and – most importantly – gets back to what he does best: killing Nazis.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus releases this Friday on October 27 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (as well as for the Nintendo Switch!) for $59.99.
