A few weeks ago, Remedy Entertainment announced the system requirements for its new PC project, Control. They were extremely high and the public was slightly excited.
In fact, there was nothing surprising here, because the very same Quantum Break was an extremely demanding game.
But yesterday Remedy updated the Control system requirements.
The minimum requirements are now Core i5 4690 and FX 4350 instead of Core i5 7500 and Ryzen 3 1300X. The same situation happened with video cards. Instead of the previously required GTX 1060 / RX 580, the game now needs a rather older GTX 780 or R9 280X. The latter, by the way, is generally an ultra old and renamed Radeon HD7970.
The recommended requirements have also changed. Instead of a Core i5 8600K and Ryzen 7 2700X, the game now needs a Core i5 7600K and Ryzen 5 1600X. The required graphics card also changed from GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Radeon VII to GTX 1660/1060 or Radeon RX 580.
The system requirements for ray tracing have also changed. Instead of the RTX 2080, the game now needs the RTX 2060, which is great news for fans of this technology.
Below is an exclusive trailer featuring RTX technology:
Recall that the game will be released on August 27 on PC (currently only in the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
