Arkane really has been spoiling us with Dishonored. First of all, we had the sublime Dishonored 2 late last year and now, just 10 months later, we're about to get our mitts on the awesome looking Dishonored: Death of the Outsider standalone expansion. It promises to be a bite-sized nugget of Dishonored action, this time pitting players os the infamous Billie Lurk, tasked with the ultimate mission - kill a god. You can't well go and kill a god with a GeForce GTS 250 though, you'll need to make sure you can hit Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's PC system requirements.

No surprises here, the system requirements for Dishonored: Death of the Outsider are exactly the same as they were for Dishonored 2. The only thing that's likely to change is the install size, which Bethesda hasn't revealed. The sequel was 60GB and this standalone add-on will likely be smaller. 

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's minimum system requirements are targeted towards 720p while the recommended specs are for 1080p resolution.

If you aren't familiar with Dishonored 2 then it should be clarified that it's quite a demanding game that doesn't run as smoothly as many had hoped. There won't be much wiggle room on these specs, and even with the recommended specs you'll have to drop a few graphics settings to run Dishonored 2 at 1080p, 60fps.
