Getting stranded on a desert island and becoming buddies with a deflated football isn't all it's cracked up to be in real life. Sure, you get plenty of sun, sea, and sun, but you can kiss goodbye to last remaining remnants of your sanity, and you'll probably to adjust to living entirely off of coconut flesh. Luckily Stranded Deep is here to save you the hassle of a crashing a plane in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Hitting Early Access in just a matter of days, Stranded Deep has you surviving solo on an island, hunting through sunken wrecks for supplies, spearing fish, crafting shelter or perhaps a raft, battling against dynamically altering weather that can have you fending off heatstroke one minute before fighting huge waves during a tropical storm. To find out whether your PC is Ray Mears or a gibbering wreck muttering to Wilson though then be sure to check out the official Stranded Deep system requirements first.

While Stranded Deep can potentially be a bit of a looker, these system requirements are in fact very low, particular the minimum system requirements which are reminiscent of much earlier in the last console generation. Perhaps most surprising is just how small the installation size for Stranded Deep is, weighing in at a tiny 1GB download. This will be down to the relatively small level design offered by the randomly generated desert islands, although it's likely to increase during Stranded Deep's progress through early progress.

On to the recommended system requirements for Stranded Deep and there's nothing particular eye-catching here. Memory and GPU demands are pretty run of the mill so this should be one desert island disaster that most gaming rigs can survive.
