Arkane Studios revealed the official Dishonored 2 requirements in a blog post earlier today. The game is now gold and as customary, the team in Lyon took a group picture to celebrate the end of years of hard work.

Going back to the Dishonored 2 requirements, though, you can find them below. Luckily they’re far from intimidating.

Minimum:

  • Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit versions); Intel Core i5-2400/AMD FX-8320 or better
  • 8 GB RAM; 60 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB or better
  • Contains a single disc. Download of additional files from Steam is required to run the game.
  • Requires Steam activation.

Recommended:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit versions); Intel Core i7-4770/AMD FX-8350 or better
  • 16 GB RAM; 60 GB free HDD space; NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB/AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB or better
  • Contains a single disc. Download of additional files from Steam is required to run the game.
  • Requires Steam activation.

The recommended drivers are 375.70 for NVIDIA and 16.10.2 for AMD. Arkane also revealed the full breadth of the graphics settings we’ll be able to tweak in Dishonored 2, though. These include four NVIDIA specific features: HBAO+, TXAA, Ansel and Surround.

Visual Settings

  • Adaptive Resolution
  • Gamma
  • Window Mode / Borderless / Fullscreen
  • V-Sync

Hardware NVidia Specifics

Dishonored 2 runs on the Void engine, a modified idTech engine. From the looks of it, even playing at 4K@60FPS with a single card might be possible – at least we hope so, since Arkane didn’t mention any support for multiGPU configurations so far.

Easily one of the most anticipated games in 2016, Dishonored 2 is the direct sequel to 2012’s hit game which features far more¬†gameplay options to sneak around the finely crafted levels, a whole new setting and even the ability to choose your own protagonist between Corvo Attano and her daughter Emily Kaldwin.

The game will be released on November 11th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but those who pre-order will have access a day earlier. Preloading is already available on Xbox One and it will be available on PC and PlayStation 4 on November 8th; there will be an update to download before you can play the game.

Check out the latest trailer, centered on Corvo Attano’s abilities and powers, here.
