After the launch of the mighty FIFA 2015 Konami's certainly got its work cut out for the next instalment in the PES series. PES 2015 is arriving on November 13th for PC, giving FIFA 15 a sizeable head start for eager footie fans. Following FIFA's move to a new engine, the PC version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will reportedly be a hybrid of the previous and current-gen versions, so while it won't necessarily have all the next-gen bells and whistles it should play a fine game of football.

New to this year's edition is Pro Evolution Soccer 2015's new PES ID feature, meaning the top players in the world today should look and move just as they do in the real life. More than 1000 players have been given the special treatment, while the clubs themselves also play in their real-life styles. While a PC demo has yet to emerge, Konami promisesa PES 2015 will be faster and more involved than ever before, offering more choices and abilities for adept players. To find out whether your PC can do it on a wet, Wednesday evening in Stoke though, you'll need to check out the PES 2015 system requirements.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 32-bit SP2 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8 GHz or Athlon II X2 240 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 1GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 512MB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT or AMD Radeon X1300 XT
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c
  • HDD: 8 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-530 2.9 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 925 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1024MB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7950 GT or AMD Radeon HD 2400

If any bigger clue were needed that Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 on PC wouldn't be matching the current-gen console versions then these PES 2015 system requirements are it. Aside from the processor demands both the PES 2015 minimum and recommended requirements are shockingly low, demanding just 2GB of RAM to play at recommended settings and eight-year-old graphics cards in the GeForce 7950 GT and the Radeon HD 2400.  

The requirements for Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 are in fact lower than last year's iteration, so anyone hoping for that 'next-gen' leap may not find it this year. In terms of getting PES '15 up and running there's not much here to get people worried, even most integrated graphics solutions should suffice for recommended settings, although the processor demands do stick out a little bit. While not hugely demanding by today's standards, in comparison to the other hardware requirements they are pretty huge, so you'll need a decent Core i3-530 or Phenom II X4 925 quad-core processor to have PES 2015 looking its finest. 

In essence though, if you could play Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 last year, then you can most certainly run the new PES 2015 edition this year.

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the PES 2015 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 GPU benchmark chart. What do you think of these worryingly low requirements for PES 2015? Do you think PC gamers are being treated as an afterthought for this release? Let us know!

LoL those CPU requirements don't make any sense... They are also a little too high relative to the GPU requirements...

its good that requirements are low i think they might be reusing PES 13 engine for graphics because recommended requirements are even lower than PES 14

everybody buys football games, yet not everybody is a gamer with a monster rig, so the low system requierements make perfect sense, i don't know why people are so surprised about that.

perhaps we are tlking about a very well optimized game which has amazing graphics, I think FIFA 15 is great , but it asks for a powerful videocard

I think the game will be greatly optimized, that is "Next-Gen" for me.

Sure he is mad, I'm too, but I'm not mad as him because I'm not soccer fan. These req. tells that game is not next gen and it won't have good graphics. We can't play the same graphics for 10 years. I'm not wasting money on it when there is next gen Fifa 15.

The PES games are always the same optimization, my friend's intel HD 3000M can run every single one of them. Probably, because they're all the same anyways. I hate this series, always trying to like it so i buy the games but it's always a fail. Wonder which is better PES or FIFA? I think none is.

Well every sports games offers the same gameplays and features, the only one that make differences is the graphical settings.

Of course there will also be minor changes in gameplay, and roster updates. i'm not familiar with football games, but i can certainly feel the differences between NHL games.

Yep some games sometimes can be creative enough to add some minor features/gameplay. Maybe it's not such a wow factors for every normal gamers, but for someone who really loves sports games will be happy enough.
