Your PC doesn't have to be colossal to run Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus


Also, there’s uncapped framerate

BJ Blazkowicz has a high-powered arsenal in his ongoing fight against the Nazis, but you won’t necessarily need a high-powered arsenal to see his fight through. Bethesda has just released the minimum and recommended PC specs for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and they seem mostly reasonable.

To be able to run Wolfenstein II, here’s what you’ll need:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770/AMD FX-8350 or better
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB/AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or better
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
  • HDD: 55GB

Of course, things ramp up for the ideal experience. But, it’s still nothing that’s excessive by today’s standards. Here’s what’s needed to run Wolfenstein IIat the recommended settings:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770/AMD FX-9370 or better
  • GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB/AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB or better
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 64-Bit
  • HDD: 55GB

Bethesda also lists all the advanced PC features that MachineGames has built into the game. Some of the more notable ones are: uncapped framerates, many different aspect ratios, 4K resolution support, a field of view slider from 70 to 120, many lighting options, full rebinding for keyboard and mouse controls, anti-aliasing options, and colorblind modes.

There you have it — modest PC requirements and plenty of options for when you play Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. But you’ll still have to worry about the tougher options like “Should I kill this group of Nazis with the laser cannon or with the triple shotgun?”
