Bethesda has lifted the lid on the required PC specifications for its forthcoming first person shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order, and they're definitely not going to be for the faint hearted!
In order to run the game, players are going to need an Intel Core i7 processor (or equivalent) as a bare minimum, something that might cause issues for players who opted for an i5 and instead put more money into their graphics card. The other required specs include at least a GeForce 460/Radeon 6850 graphics card, a minimum of 4GB of RAM (which is more than reasonable in today's climate), 50GB of hard drive space and a 64-bit version of either Windows 7 or Windows 8.
The publisher also took the opportunity to announce the hard drive requirements for the console versions of the game, with both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions requiring a minimum of 8GB of free space, or 47GB for a complete install (important to note should you be purchasing a digital version), the PS4 version requiring 17GB for a digitally purchaased version and 8GB for a disc-based version (the PS3 needs double the game's actual footprint in order to install it on the hard drive), and the Xbox 360 version will require an 8GB install and will come on a ridiculous four discs.
Wolfenstein: The New Order lands on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 20th.
