The final part of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trilogy is set to descend on us in a matter of weeks, allowing gamers to finally take control of the blood-sucking menace himself, Dracula.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Recommended System Requirements

CPU: 2.4 GHz Core 2 Quad Q6600 or 2.6GHz AMD Athlon II X4 620

RAM: 2 GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 1024 MB VRAM

HD: 10GB hard drive space

Control: Gamepad recommended

Fans of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are in luck, for if you were capable of running Castlevania: Lords of Shadow you're almost definitely going to be able to run its sequel. Running off of the same engine as its predecessor, Lords of Shadow 2 minimum requirements are by now pretty undemanding. The stalwart that is the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is all that's needed to get the game up and running. Nothing in the Lords of Shadow 2 minimum system requirements stands out as particularly demanding, even requiring 5GB less hard drive space than the original Lords of Shadow.

The step up to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2's recommended system requirements mean that you're going to be a quad-core processor to get it running at its best, as well as a GPU with at least 1GB of VRAM. The memory required stays extremely low though, requiring just 2GB of RAM for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 recommended settings.

It being an action game, requiring rapid reflexes, you're obviously going to want a high FPS in Lords of Shadow 2. Those of you not quite hitting the recommended system settings are going to probably find it better to drop the graphical settings a notch in order to get a smoother experience. 

Interestingly a key difference between the minimum and recommended Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the suggestion that a keyboard and mouse are the minimum requirements while a gamepad is recommended. Being designed primarily for consoles means that this may be one of those rare games that is going to play better sporting an Xbox gamepad.

Although I am not sure about the optimization, You can easily run it on low settings and probably medium as well with 25 above Frames per second. Hope this helps :)
