Eidos Montreal have revealed the official Thief PC system requirements and the good news is you don’t need an overly speedy computer to run it! According to the blog post Eidos have teamed up once again with the pros at Nixxes to optimise the game for PC.

“Now that we’re done tinkering and optimizing every aspect of the game,” the blog post reads, “we can finally announce the minimum and recommended system requirements.” and they are as follows:

Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista with platform update
CPU: High-performance dual core CPU or quad core CPU
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 4800 series / Nvidia GTS 250
DirectX: DirectX 10

Recommended Specs
OS: Windows 7 or 8
CPU: AMD FX 8000 series or better / Intel i7 Quad Core CPU
RAM: 4+ GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD / R9 series or better / Nvidia GTX 660 series or better
DirectX: DirectX 11

Though the required specs aren’t bad at all I’ll still need to upgrade my PC if I want to run the game at recommended settings, but at least the minimum is okay! I’ll be able to run the game in ‘Low’ and experience the game in all of its pixelated beauty!
