Bethesda have officially revealed the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for their upcoming shooter Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The specs are pretty reasonable and you'll only need Nvidia GTX 1060 to play the game on high details.

MachineGames and Arkane Studios' upcoming shooter Wolfenstein: Youngblood is just around the corner, and today, the publisher Bethesda have revealed the official minimum and recommended system requirements for those who plan to experience the game on the PC platform.

To be fair, it looks like the devs did a pretty good job when it comes to optimisation, at least the specs tell that story with very reasonable hardware in both minimum and recommended tab.

Unfortunately, Bethesda did not reveal specific details like target frame rate for these specs, resolutions or settings, so we'll just have to assume that the minimum specs are for playing the game on the lowest settings while the recommended are for high details.

According to the list, PC players will need at least AMD FX-8350/Ryzen 5 1400 or Intel Core i5-3570/i7-3770 for the CPU and NVIDIA GTX 770 or AMD equivalent for the GPU if they want to play the game on the lowest settings. You'll also need 8 GB of RAM, and 40 GB of free HDD or SSD space.

For those who love to crank up the graphics to the max, Bethesda recommend AMD FX-9370/Ryzen 5 1600X or Intel Core i7-4770 for the CPU part, while Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB or AMD equivalent will be enough for the graphics card.

It's interesting that Bethesda did not reveal specs for Nvidia's RTX ray tracing technology that is featured in Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The specs only briefly mention that Nvidia's currently available graphics card that replaces GTX 1060 is RTX 2060, but there are no specific details about the ray tracing requirements. Here are the full PC specs for Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

Minimum:

  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
  • CPU: AMD FX-8350/Ryzen 5 1400 or Intel Core i5-3570/i7-3770
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB (Current available GPU GTX1650) or AMD equivalent
  • Storage: 40 GB available space

Recommended:
