Is your PC evolved enough to run Evolve? Check out the specs

Evolve, the monster-vs.-hunters game from Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios, is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One. The developer has shared the minimum and recommended PC specifications so you can find out whether your rig has what it takes to join the hunt, or if it needs to undergo a little forced evolution itself in order to take part.

Not having a 64-bit operating system is a deal-breaker, but the  minimum specs are otherwise forgiving, asking at minimum for graphics cards that were mid-range in 2011, and thus should not break the bank today if you need an upgrade.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • INTEL CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600
  • AMD CPU: Athlon 64 X2 6400
  • SYSTEM RAM: 4GB
  • NVIDIA VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 560
  • ATI VIDEO CARD: Radeon HD 5770
  • VIDEO MEMORY: 1GB
  • HARD DRIVE: 50GB

RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • INTEL CPU: Core i7-920
  • AMD CPU: A8-3870K
  • SYSTEM RAM: 6GB
  • NVIDIA VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 670 or GTX 760
  • ATI VIDEO CARD: Radeon R9 280
  • VIDEO MEMORY: 2GB
  • HARD DRIVE: 50GB

If you’re not sure whether your PC has what it takes, the developer suggests using Nvidia’s GPU analyzer to check. The post also confirms that the game will support 4K displays at launch, though not yet Nvidia’s Scalable Link Interface multi-GPU processing, for which Turtle Rock is working to add support at a later date.

Evolve comes out on PS4, Windows, and Xbox One on February 10. Xbox One owners can get an early taste of the action with an open beta that runs from January 15 to 19.
