Action-packed co-op shooter Strange Brigade has had its system requirements revealed, as well as confirmation via Steam that it will support Denuvo's dreaded Anti-Tamper DRM.
These system requirements come by way of DSOGaming, who said the system specs came straight from Rebellion. The official Strange Brigade Steam store page hasn't been updated, nor has their site, and we haven't heard official word from them about the specs. With that in mind, here are the alleged Strange Brigade PC system requirements.
Strange Brigade Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-4100 3.6 GHz
- RAM: 4 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870
- DX: DirectX 11
Strange Brigade Recommended System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
- RAM: 8 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 480
Rebellion fans may be quick to notice these system requirements for Strange Brigade are exactly the same as the system requirements for 2017's Sniper Elite 4. This isn't overly surprising of course. Rebellion has its own in-house Asura game engine and it's only been about 18 months since Sniper Elite 4. Strange Brigade probably just builds upon the same toolset.
With that in mind, these are a very ordinary set of system requirements, sitting right around the average of what we expect from sub-AAA title these days. The minimum system requirements are likely what you'll be needing to play at a level of quality and screen resolution similar to what the original Xbox One is capable of, while the recommended system specs for Strange Brigade should be able to crank up the graphics settings to the max and play at 1080p.
Strange Brigade will have a lot more going on at any one time than Sniper Elite 4 though. It's four-player co-op with hordes of enemies and large, open environments. A stable FPS will be crucial during hectic moments and a decent mid-range video card with at least 2GB VRAM is a necessity. For those with modern systems, something akin to a GeForce GTX 1050 or Radeon R7 460 should be able to handle in mid-settings just fine.
The bump up to the recommended specs for Strange Brigade sees the popular GeForce GTX 970 back once more, joined by the RX 480 in its 4GB variant. If you're sporting one of the newer GeForce graphics cards, a GTX 1060 should more than do here.
Overall, just like Sniper Elite 4, Strange Brigade seems like a reasonably specced game that a wide range of PC gamers should have little trouble playing.
