The Longest Journey and its sequel Dreamfall: The Longest Journey are often considered among the greatest 3D adventure games of all time. Almost a decade after the sequel's outing the long-awaited saga finally continues. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign that saw developer Red Thread Games nearly double its $850,000 target The Longest Journey is back in Dreamfall Chapters.

Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is a choice-driven narrative adventure set in a series of bizarre parallel worlds - a unique fusion of fantasy and cyberpunk sci-fi. A brand new episodic storyline acts as a starting point for new players while the over-arching narrative leads to a final conclusion for the far-reaching adventure series. Before you get downloading later this year though you'll need a rig up to the job, so read on to check out the Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey system requirements...

Dreamfall Chapters Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows XP 32-bit Service Pack 3
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2.0GHz OR AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+ 2.6GHz
  • RAM: 3GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB OR Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c
  • HDD: 5GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • Audio: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card  

Dreamfall Chapters Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8GHz OR AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 430 OR AMD Radeon HD 5550
  • GPU RAM: 1GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 20GB Free Hard Drive Space

The minimum system requirements for Dreamfall Chapters are pretty reasonable, with a 2.0GHz dual-core processor needed coupled with GeForce 8600 GTS and above. Of interest to those with lower-powered systems is that integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics will suffice, while a smaller install size of 5GB should help those with jam-packed hard drives.

The leap up to recommended system requirements isn't too great, other that the processors which take a huge jump. From the relatively modest minimum requirements of a dual-core 2Ghz processor Dreamfall Chapters seemingly demands a quad-core i5 processor to get it looking its finest. Judging from Dreamfall Chapter's slow pace and often claustrophobic environments we would expect lesser processors top hopefully handle it just fine. Meanwhile the additional 15GB install size indicates the possibility of higher resolution textures, audio files, and uncompressed video for a better version of Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey.
