Now it might have all the hallmarks of a hastily thrown together cash-grab, but there's a new Ghostbusters game dammit. I mean, what if it's actually good? From the early looks we've had it appears as if Activision and FireForge Games have put together a paranormal action-RPG which is equal parts Diablo and Gauntlet. Teams of up to four can grab their proton packs and attempt to harness ghosts cropping up in various locations around Manhattan. Before you go and do something daft like crossing your proton streams though, make sure you check out the Ghostbuster system requirements so you can see your gaming build is up for the hunt.  

Ghostbusters Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-750 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 3 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870
  • HDD: 5 GB available space
  • DX: DirectX 11

Now far be it from me to disparage how a game looks, but visually Ghostbusters isn't exactly going to win any awards. At a push I'd guess it looks like Diablo 3 with better lighting effects, which considering Diablo III was designed to run on just about any PC going, isn't saying much. At the moment we've only got the minimum system requirements for Ghostbusters 2016 to go on, but these are pretty damn lofty in the grand scheme of things. Just to pluck a game out as an example, these minimum system requirements comfortably outdo the minimum for Watch Dogs. 

Up at the fairly high-end for minimum system specs we've got either a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870. Neither are going to win awards for their performance, but they are mid-range graphics cards from the last three or so years. Likewise the CPUs, with a quad-core processor seemingly a must. For both CPU and GPU we'd like to think you squeeze by in Ghostbusters with far less, but it all depends on just how quickly this game has been put together.

Anyway, it's not all demanding. A mere 3GB RAM is all that's needed, so it's looking as if you can get away with an older 32-bit operating system. Likewise Windows Vista is supported if you're still rocking it, which is a bit of a rarity these days. Unlike plenty of modern AAA behemoths Ghostbusters will only occupy 5GB of your hard drive as well.
