Oh boy. After the excruciating torment of getting through Outlast, I'd thought I'd seen the last of its diabolical ways. But alas, it's back and looking more terrifying than ever; a tale of killer villagers, horrendous inbreeding, and some good old fashioned fisticuffs between good and evil. No, I'm not talking about Midsomer Murders, but Outlast 2. It's slicing its way onto PC next week, here are Outlast 2's official PC system requirementsc so you can make sure you're good and ready for the horror show.

Outlast 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-530 2.9 GHz or AMD Phenom II X3 715 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or AMD Radeon HD 4870
  • DX: DirectX 10
  • HDD: 30 GB available space

Outlast 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-760 2.8 GHz or AMD FX-8100 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1.5 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 30 GB available space

Fret not, my little horrors, for Outlast 2 is but a breeze to run. In comparison to your average title today at least. If you were hoping for the same specs as the original Outlast, you may be disappoint.

Still, as far as system requirements go, these for Outlast 2 are erring on the light end of the scale. You're only going to need a modest graphics card with 1-2GB VRAM in order to see Outlast 2 PC in all its glory. It'll need to be paired with a decently powerful dual core processor, and it'll also chug down 30GB of hard drive space - six times the original Outlast.

And a brief of clarification on what sort of performance these specs will get you. The minimum specs for Outlast 2 should get you a fixed 30 FPS at 720p resolution, while the recommended is golden for 1080p / 60 FPS. This should mean anything rocking a GeForce GTX 1060 or higher should be good to go with 4K in some form.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Outlast II System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Outlast 2 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Outlast 2 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Try to always make the requirements more outdated friendly.

Loved RE7, but anyway, your GPU meets recommended spec, a factory overclocked GTX 750 TI is roughly the equivalent of a GTX 660, the rest of your system is above spec, so my guess is, you'll be able to run on high settings 1080P at playable framerates..... atleast 45 FPS average I would guess.

Not sure what you mean by trash resident evil 7. They made all the important changes to take the genre to the good old days. If you said resident evil 6 i would agree with you thou.

Visuals set to be slightly better than the first game, and that's fine by me. At this point, any game I can run at a solid 1080p60 on my lowish-end hardware I'll take. And besides, it's Outlast.
My eyes will be closed half the time.

Game looks ok, and reqs are modest. I wish more studios would consider this approach.

that would mean to work a lot more on plot/story/mechanics... too bothersome! I think the same principals go for movies these days...

If it's a Michael Bay movie the only plot is : this goes boom ,that goes boom and then everything goes boom.
