Capcom have updated the system requirements for their upcoming slasher Devil May Cry 5. The change is minor and it lowers the minimum required CPU for both Intel and AMD parts. The rest of the recommended hardware remains unchanged though.

Judging by the updated system requirements for Devil May Cry 5, Capcom have put some additional effort to improve the game's performance.

So, the minimum specs for the fifth instalment in series now list Intel Core i5-4460 and the AMD FX 6300 CPUs instead of Intel Core i7-4770, which was the previous minimum CPU requirement.

The rest of the hardware components are as initially announced. To play Devil May Cry 5 on the lowest settings, you'll need at least Windows 7, 8 GB of RAM and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 760 or AMD's Radeon R7 260x with 2 GB of VRAM.

Additionally, the game will take 35 GB of storage space while the network connection is also required for game activation.

For those who want to play Devil May Cry 5 in its full visual glory, Intel's third-gen i5-3770 or AMD's FX 9590 CPUs will work well with a choice between Nvidia's GTX 1060 6GB and AMD's RX 480 8GB GPUs. The recommended specs also list 8GB of RAM.

While Capcom didn't go into detail with these specs, we assume they are for 1080p resolution and 60 FPS gameplay. For higher resolutions such as 1440p and 4K, Devil May Cry 5 should require much faster cards such as AMD's Radeon VII which was used to showcase the game's performance at AMD's CES 2019.

Devil May Cry 5 demo should get released soon on all platforms which will be a good opportunity to see just how optimised the game is. Xbox One players had an exclusive chance to try out the upcoming slasher back in December 2018.

Dante and Nero return to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on 8 March 2019.
