The latest system requirements News for Outlast
Full system requirements for Outlast reported on Sep-06-2013

Outlast came out on 04/09 and for those of you brave enough to give it a try here are the minimum and recommended system requirements.

The game looks to be one that's not for the squeamish, with you playing as an investigative journalist who takes it upon themselves to explore an abandoned mental asylum. Cracking idea...

The game looks absolutely fantastic in videos so have a quick look at these specs to see how it will stack up on your PC.

Outlast Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 - 64 bits *

CPU: 2.2 GHz Dual Core CPU

RAM: 2 GB RAM

GPU: 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX / ATI Radeon HD 3xxx series

DX: DirectX 9.0c

HDD: 5 GB available space

NET: Broadband Internet connection

Outlast Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista / 7 / 8 - 64 bits

CPU: 2.8 GHz Quad Core CPU

RAM: 3 GB RAM

GPU: 1GB NVIDIA GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 6850 or better

From the looks of things it seems a fairly demanding game if you want to squeeze some of that visual loveliness out of it. While your rig might not necessarily stack up to the task of some of the higher visual settings it should run fairly well at minimum and above. 

The graphics do look a significant notch up from similar horror titles such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent and as such we are seeing jumps like those in the recommended requirements.

Oct-19-2012 Red Barrel Games are mostly known for working on projects and games such as Assasin's Creed and Uncharted. They now unveiled their new IP: Outlast.The announcement goes together with some early footag...

I just got this game even tho I'm not supposed to be able to run it. Textures are low, shadows very low, everything else is on low. V Sync on. I have no problems playing the game but there is a bit of "fog" in the game. Textur/shadow 2 low?

I can't guarantee playable FPS even at lowest because of GPU, but try lowering your resolution and you might have a chance.

I don't think so, mate. My laptop is similar to your rig and the game wasn't playable at all, at any settings…
