Legendary game director Suda51 is back with another super-stylish and ultra-violent hack 'n' slasher, Killer Is Dead - Nightmare Edition.
Next month PC gamers will be able to slice and dice like pros, as players take on the role of suave execution Mondo Zappa in yet another ridiculously over-the-top action game courtesy of Grasshopper. There aren't many more genres out there that demand 60fps quite like Suda51's smooth blend of action and grotesque violence. So, without further ado, let's check out the Killer Is Dead - Nightmare Edition system requirements...
Killer Is Dead Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows XP 32-bit with Service Pack 2
CPU: 2.00 GHz Intel Pentium 4 or 2.0 GHz AMD Athlon XP 3000+
RAM: 2GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 9100 or AMD Radeon HD 2400 Pro
DX: DirectX 10
HDD: 13 GB Free Hard Drive Space
Killer Is Dead Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5-2400 or 3.5 GHz AMD FX-6120
RAM: 8 GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 or AMD Radeon HD 6750
There aren't many brand new games with system requirements as low as these are for Killer Is Dead's minimum system requirements. To get the game up and running you're only going to need an ageing rig, sporting a meagre 2 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. GPU requirements for Killer Is Dead are slightly higher, but there's not much there to worry most people.
The leap up to the recommended Killer Is Dead system requirements is pretty insane though, asking for a whopping 8GB of memory and some not-inconsiderable CPU requirements. We'd estimate that these recommended requirements will net you the absolute best settings, hopefully at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. While aesthetically stylish, Killer Is Dead doesn't necessarily push graphical boundaries, so the recommended system requirements might be a little on the high side here.

Pentium 4 is back, NICE :)
I am ALL OVER THIS!!!!!
now this is a proper requirements.. not some man-i-gotta-upgrade stuffs
Yup games these days are really demanding :|
XP SP2 with DX10? Isn't that supposed to be SP3 or am I mistaken.
As far as I know, XP doesn't even support directX 10. You have to have at least Vista.
really strange requirements... How can the minimum be a P4 and the max be i5....Probably the game has physics?.....and some of the settings actually are cpu intense and not only gpu like in starcraft?But still..
Wow nice range of support, I'm quite impressed. ;)
Everything Suda has ever done should be on PC. I seriously hope they consider No More Heroes and Shadow of the Damned if this does well.
WTF!? pentium 4 for the minimum and i5 for recommended?
That's a huge difference...
Same thing for gpu and ram...
what? nothing wrong...
No heart attack at this one. XD
what settings for me?
thanks so much :D +1
