Those with keener memories probably remember already reading an article about ReCore's system requirements. That's because Microsoft has already announced one lot of system requirements but it's now gone and changed them. However, these new changed requirements for ReCore got a little easier on the minimum required specs to play the game.
For reference, these were the previous requirements. Here are the new ones:
ReCore Updated Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-3550 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
- RAM: 8GB System Memory
- VRAM: 2 GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7 370
- DX: DirectX 11
ReCore Updated Recommended System Requirements
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
- RAM: 16 GB System Memory
- VRAM: 4 GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290X
A rough analysis of these requirements show that the hardware required to run ReCore smoothly at 1080p isn't as taxing as many other AAA games nowadays. ReCore is a Windows 10 exclusive but it's weird to note that there is no DirectX 12 support. Given the rather disappointing performance of DirectX 12 so far, ReCore would have been a prime opportunity for Microsoft to demonstrate performance gains the current low-level API has over the predecessor but alas, that's not to be.
The minimum required CPU is either an Intel Core i5-3550, AMD FX-6300 or equivalent which are around 4 years old so they shouldn't be much of a problem. Same goes with the recommended CPU duo. The i5-4570 is three years old and the FX-8350 is four, so a fair indicator that ReCore isn't heavily CPU dependent.
Moving onto the GPUs, Microsoft has apparently backtracked and changed the recommended GPU duo from a GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390 down to its former flagships - the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290X. Both still pack quite a punch but a clear indication that the budget title isn't as graphically taxing as we thought.
In regards to RAM, it's remained the same as it was before. Minimum video memory is 2GB while recommended is 4GB.
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.

It requires Windows 10. So... im not gonna be playing it even if i got a pirated version xD
Now if only the windows store part would disappear...
What the hell is with this windows store bull****,i don't have a 1TB ssd,mine is only 128 GB and its already out of 100...
what are you talking about?
still i5 as minimum , i would say a dual core cpu will run this
i feel sorry for the 4 people buying this game because they have to use the Windows store
4 gb of vram is to much for this game in my opinion! and what is wrong with all those developers man? tech is getting better and better but optimizations are getting worse and worse! i thought that 8 gb ram would be standard for maxing out a game till 2018 but daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn
Rise of The Tomb Raider can hit over 9GB for me, and has even gone to 11GB on occasion. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is also a RAM hog, although not as bad as RoTTR. 2016 seems to be the year requirements go through the roof.
Ram isn't that expensive who cares!
i am sorry but there are people who are very low budget and want to go for better gpu than more ram :) my friend bought rx 480 and 8 gb of ram. 16 gb costs 50$ more so he decided to go for rx 480 instead of rx 470 :)
it is strange me talking about low budget but i bought this pc because i succeeded in exams, i got free university and +some money from government so i decided to take money and buy pc because i need it for programming and 3d designs! also gaming too :D
There's basically no change here. The only real change is the 8350 to the 6300. The rest requires pretty much exactly the same grunt, just with different models: i5 4460 to i5 3550, GTX 970 to GTX 780, and R9 390 to R9 290X
Are u kidding me? What's with the 16gb ram suddenly every game needs it, i watched the gameplay, ok i get if deus ex has 16gb, but this game?
I'm pretty sure that it won't use more than 8GB though
Mankind divided uses 8.3gb-10gb of total system memory, and the game's exe itself, uses around 6.5gb of system memory. That's on my PC at least
