Sometimes, all you want to do is mow your way through a crowd of zombies with reckless abandon. Too often we've had to tiptoe around the brain-dead hordes, but Killing Floor 2 puts the power firmly in the player's hands once more. Locked and loaded with an awesome arsenal of high-end weaponry, it's the living versus the undead in blood-spattered fights, last men standing. 

The original Killing Floor began life as an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod, but Killing Floor 2 takes everything to the next level. Continental Europe has descended into chaos after the undead outbreak, and it's up to you five other buddies to wipe the floor with them under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Before you book your flight though, check out the official Killing Floor 2 system requirements to see whether your rig is more Bruce Campbell than zombie menace. 

Killing Floor 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom II X2 545 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 3 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon HD 4830
  • HDD: 10GB available space
  • DX: DirectX 10

Killing Floor 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 8 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9950 2.83GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6950
  • DX: DirectX 11

As you can see Killing Floor 2 system requirements aren't overly demanding. Sure, you'll need a fairly decent rig to crank the settings up, particularly when things get intense, but the minimum system requirements for Killing Floor 2 are definitely at the lower-end of the scale. You'll need a 64-bit DX-10 capable system as a minimum, but both the graphics cards and processor demands are definitely showing their age.

Being a horde-based shooter though, Killing Floor 2 is going to be all about quick reactions and lightning fast movements, so it's fairly imperative you can hit a rock-solid frame rate. Once there's six of you blasting away in a co-op game things are sure to be quite demanding, which is where the added power of the recommended requirements for Killing Floor 2 come in. Running on a modified version of Unreal Engine 3, which has always been a great performer, if your PC could handle the more demanding moments of games like Borderlands 2 and Batman: Arkham City then you should be good to go.

I cannot wait for this game. It has come at the worst time though. My exams begin the week after the early access release. :(

Do you think that i could run this? There are people who say they are playing this with even weaker machines than i have. I will probably get the PS4 version when it releases, but that will surely take several months. And i have some PC gamer friends i would like to play this with :)

32 bit desktop CPUs haven't been made in a long long time, since 2007 I believe. Now next gen's here, I'd expect to see games require nothing but 64 bit.

Game runs fine at ultra for me, however, multi-GPU systems are going to have weird glitches with the HUD as far as beta went.

I'm guessing medium-high? I know that the 8xxM series is quite strong.

The development team knew half the Killing Floor community ran with older specs, so they kept that in mind for Killing Floor 2. It isn't like UE3 wasn't demanding though, it just depends on how the team worked with it.

Maybe it's because these guys are dedicated to their game and fanbase. That's the message I've been getting from gameplay interviews with some of the development team.

Tripwire Interactive are one of the best. They listen to player feedback, they offer free maps, updates regularly and have Christmas and Halloween events where the skins of the zombies are changed to give some variety. I've played 7k hrs:)
