Bethesda have revealed a handful of details for The Evil Within, their upcoming survival horror title developed by Tango Gameworks, in regards to the minimum PC specifications and install sizes of the game for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. If you’re planning to grab the game on PC you may need to upgrade your video card, as among other things, The Evil Within requires at least 4GB of VRAM so you can play the game “as the developers intended.”
Players who have anything less than the recommended “GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4 GB of VRAM,” Bethesda says that they “cannot guarantee optimal performance.” So if you’re looking to get the best experience in The Evil Within, you may need to upgrade your system, or at least your graphics card.
Here are the recommended PC system specs for The Evil Within:
- 64-bit Windows 7/Windows 8
- i7 with four-plus cores
- 4 GB RAM
- 50 GB of hard drive space
- GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4 GB of VRAM
- High speed Internet connection
- Steam account and activation
As for the console versions of The Evil Within you have a lot less to worry about as the game only requires you to have 40GB of storage space on your PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and only 7GB of space on your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. More details are available at the Bethesda Blog.
