UPDATE: The official Life is Strange 2 PC system specs have been altered since the original announcement. We've updated this article with the revised system requirements, as well as the Life is Strange 2 game page.

Original Story: 02-Jul-2018 - Life is Strange 2 System Requirements Revealed

Life is Strange 2 was announced late last week, although we all we got was the name and the briefest of teasers. Which leaves us in the curious position of having the official PC system requirements for Life is Strange 2 despite not see a single screenshot or any actual gameplay from the game whatsoever.

Life is Strange 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 3.1 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 2GB or Radeon HD 7770 2GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 14 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Life is Strange 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 280X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 14 GB Available Hard Drive Space

The Life is Strange 2 system requirements have been revised slightly, with the main changes coming to the recommended CPUs and GPUs. The system specs for Life is Strange 2 are identical to The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a free prequel episode that's available to download on Steam.

As a minimum, Dontnod is suggesting you have a video card with at least 2GB VRAM along with a dual-core processor clocked at 3.0GHz or faster for LiS2. It's still fairly forgiving for a 2018 title, particularly when accounting for the 4GB RAM. However, go careful with the minimum GPUs. The Radeon HD 7770 is typically a 1GB video card, whereas Life is Strange 2 requires a minimum of 2GB VRAM. Something along the lines of a Radeon R7 250 should still suffice.

If you're aiming for a nice, smooth, 60 frames per second in the Life is Strange then you'll be needing a GeForce GTX 970 or equivalent, as well as a quad-core CPU. This isn't vital but if you want to play on High settings at 1080p then this is the level of hardware you'll need. For AMD users this means a Radeon R9 280X or equivalent, so something like the Radeon RX 470 should be able to run Life is Strange 2 without any performance hiccups.
