Iron Galaxy has announced that giant-battler Extinction will be launching on April 10th, and has also sent along the official PC system requirements. Extinction is a single-player action adventure in which you play as one of the world's last Sentinels, taking on 150-foot tall monsters destroying entire cities. It's brawling on the grandest scale, and sure to give Attack of Titan fans a kick. David didn't take on Goliath without preparing his trusty slingshot first though, so make sure you're ready by checking out Extinction's PC specs first.

Extinction Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-760 2.8GHz or AMD Athlon X4 740 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870
  • HDD: 3GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Extinction Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-9370 4.4 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 470 4GB
  • HDD: 3 GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Extinction looks very much to be an AA tier game, sitting somewhat below AAA, and the system requirements reflection this. Minimum CPU requirements for Extinction are extremely low end, while you'll only need a DirectX 11 graphics card with at least 2GB VRAM. 8GB RAM is on the high side though, so we suspect you may be able to actually get away with 6GB. 

The only truly curious thing to note about the minimum specs is the 3GB installation size. This is ludicrously small and we expect this has to change between now and Extinction's April 10th launch.

Moving up to the recommended specs for Extinction and these are pretty much in line with the average AAA requirements over the past 12 months. Iron Galaxy recommends a capable quad-core processor and a mid-range graphics card for the best possible performance, presumably at 1080p. It looks as if Extinction slightly favours AMD hardware as well, with the weaker Radeon RX 470 being paired with the GeForce GTX 970.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Extinction System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Extinction GPU benchmark chart and we also have an Extinction Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.
