Ahoy there me maties, step aboard for Raven's Cry, a hearty naval adventure combining epic ship to ship battles, exploring uncharted lands, and parading through historical towns. Piratical in the truest sense of the word, Reality Pump's latest promises to be a tale of cutthroat daring and good old fashioned action, blending RPG and adventure gameplay with fencing antics.

The open-world of the Caribbean will be yours to explore in Raven's Cry, as you embark on a gritty tail of revenge, scurvy, and probably grog. Combining dozens of side quests, treasure hunting, and smuggling, Raven's Cry could be a surprise package when it arrives later this year. To find out whether your rig's a rusty old tub or an ocean-conquering Man-o-war though, read on to check out the Raven's Cry system requirements.

Raven's Cry Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6400 2.13 GHz or AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory

Judging from the footage revealed so far these minimum requirements for Raven's Cry actually seem quite high, demanding a fairly decent rig with a DirectX 11-powered card just to get up and running. The dual-core processors are relatively old now though so most should be alright there, but you'll need a fairly sizeable 4GB of RAM and at least Windows 7 32-bit. While Raven's Cry isn't massively demanding there are a few things there that could cause some people problems.

Moving on to the recommended requirements and these are definitely on the higher-end of the scale from what were expecting. A 2GHz quad-core processor will suffice but we think you can get away with a higher-clocked dual-core Intel processor for sure if you want to go down that route. The 8GB of RAM is pretty huge, but most modern-day gaming PCs are going to come with this as standard by now. Of note is the recommendation for gamepad support, meaning Raven's Cry could potentially be heavily optimised for console-style play, so it could be worth dusting off the Xbox 360 controller for this one.
