ReCore System Requirements Slot Into Place

Legendary game developer Keiji Inafune might have become a whole lot less legendary with Mighty No. 9, but when the Mega Man creator helms a game, people inevitably sit up and take notice. Inafune's producing ReCore, out on September 13th from Microsoft. It's an ultra-hard third-person action adventure with intense, core-swapping combat. Before you strap in, check out the official ReCore system requirements and make sure your rig's ready.

ReCore Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7 370
  • DX: DirectX 11

ReCore Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390

The good news straight away is that ReCore, a first-party Microsoft exclusive, doesn't require DirectX 12. The bad news - ReCore is still only compatible with Windows 10 installations. I've a feeling this is a game ready-made to 'do a Quantum Break' and re-release on Steam at some later point, so if you don't fancy getting dirty in the Windows Store it may pay to wait.

As for the rest of ReCore's system requirements, its positioning as a slightly budget title means it's not quite as graphically demanding as the likes of Gears of War 3 and Forza Horizon 3. The minimum requirements for ReCore very reasonably, with perhaps the CPUs the only things to really stand out. Still, the slow progress of CPU advancements these days means most won't have trouble matching the Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-8350, and as we saw with the Battlefield 1 minimum specs the CPU can usually be undercut with ease.

Up to the recommended and it's quite bizarre to see a Microsoft published title not support DirectX 12 in any capacity. Not that it makes much difference, DX12 has been very disappointing so far. Here we see a double of RAM, no surprise there, and a massive jump to the GeForce GTX 970 and the Radeon R9 390. The former is one of the most popular graphics cards in the world, so hopefully plenty can hit the sweet spot of ReCore's recommended requirements. CPU demands remain the same in truth, further highlighting there's probably lots of wiggle room down near the minimum.

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the ReCore System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the ReCore GPU benchmark chart.

"its an ultra-hard third person adventure"


Does this mean that that ultra hard stands for difficulty?

How about be polite and ask them to change system requirements? We are humans so we make mistakes :D

Well hmmm this is some fishy business, the requirements are totally out of place, even PCGamer has incorrect ones :/
In future if you find anything incorrect, leave us admins a private message please thanks. I'll sort this out :)

That's because these ones are the ones they showed on that exact page last week :) They have changed is all. These things happen but when we notice them we update them. The problem is we can't keep tabs on every game we've already been supplied the system requirements for very easily.

4 GB RAM ran as gold stanndard for a number of years. And suddenly 8GB RAM has becime minimum???
Devs just getting lazy and not optimizing. Everything is sky high - the CPU, the RAM, the GPU....and this is budget title?


This is XBOX One title with UWP and UNOPTIMIZATION at its best!

I agree with many of you that the system requirements, especially the CPU, seem rather high for a "budget" title. Makes me wonder what about the game is so CPU intensive. Games like Overwatch have much better requirements.

With every new cpu generation and gpu generation the requirements go up and games become more demanding. Sometimes the game doesn't even look better at all because of unoptimization. It's also a marketing trick to promote newer stuff.

It's Microsoft, what do you expect?
It was probably developed for Xbone and comes to PC wrapped in a love less poorly coded emulator. Just look at all the other Xbone "exclusive" games that got ported over to PC. They all need big i5s and all that good stuff on PC, while they magically run on outdated AMD hardware on the console.
They don't care about optimization, they only care for the money it'll make them and about pushing Windows 10.

I'm going to ask a question for those with high end gaming pc's: Do modern day games really are using this huge amount of RAM? I do believe that at some point in the future it's going to happen but seriously? 16GB RAM???

no way m8. so far every game I've played only uses about 4-6 GB at max. but I do suggest getting 16 GB ram since you're going to need that sooner rather than later. but right now 8 gb is definitely ok.

The max ram usage I have seen is 7-8 gigs in a game not more than that.
