Crytek have unveiled the hardware requirements for the return of their iconic shooter Crysis, and the minimum ones should be manageable for most players.

The specs were posted on Epic Games Store, and it's the usual stuff - 64-bit installation of Win 10, at least 8GB of memory, 20GB of hard drive space and a DirectX 11 capable card. 

In terms of CPUs, Crytek recommend a minimum of Intel Core i5 3450 or AMD Ryzen 3. Their recommended optimum setup includes a Core i5 7600K or higher, or AMD Ryzen 5 or higher. 

Running Crysis' new and improved graphics will require a minimum of Gefore GTX 1050 Ti, or Radeon 470 on the AMD side. Optimally, users should have a GTX 1660 Ti or Radeon Vega 56. 

Crytek also touched on the graphics memory, where 4GB is required for 1080p and 8GB for 4K resolution. 

It's probably worth mentioning that Crysis will probably put whatever you've got to good use. Knowing just how resource-intensive ray tracing can get, you can rest assured that even Nvidia's latest batch of cards will be put through its paces.
