Wolfenstein system requirements released for PC and consoles

High-end PC specs confirmed, console hard drive space detailed

Bethesda has announced official PC and console system requirements for its upcoming FPS reboot, Wolfenstein: The New Order.


The company notes that the system requirements listed below are "based on the game being a next-gen experience running at 60fps", and that "these are the system requirements to deliver the PC game as it was intended to be experienced," which we assume means you can consider them 'recommended' specs, and not the 'minimum' required to play on lower detail settings.

PC System Requirements

OS: 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8
CPU: Intel Core i7 or equivalent AMD
Memory: 4 GB System RAM
HDD: 50 GB free HDD space
GPU: GeForce 460, ATI Radeon HD 6850
High Speed Internet Connection

The publisher has also confirmed the minimum hard drive space required for each of the console versions to run. Of particular note is the higher-end PS4 and Xbox One versions' requirement of a whopping 47GB, and the Xbox 360 version's use of 4 discs.

Here are the console specs:

Hands-on: Wolfenstein The New Order is a stubbornly old-school shooter

Can a singleplayer, narrative-driven shooter succeed in 2014?
