Originally released back in late 2016 exclusively on PS4, Let It Die has led a curious life. Originally known as Lily Bergamo, it's a free-to-play action game with multiplayer invasion elements that had a decent reception but disappeared off the face of the Earth. Here we are almost two years later though, and Let It Die is making a comeback, this time coming to PC with some of the most heinously demanding system requirements we've ever seen.

Let it Die Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 680 or Radeon R9 380
  • DX: DirectX 9
  • HDD: 40GB Available Hard Drive Space

Let it Die Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 3.6GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 8 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
  • DX: DirectX 9
  • HDD: 40 GB Available Hard Drive Space

I'll just provide a gentle reminder that this game is out in 10 days from the of writing. These are the sort of grossly miscalculated system specs that are farted out about a year before a game launches, so it certainly is worrying to see a DirectX 9 title like Let it Die with such hugely demanding system specs just days before launch.

It's been a while since I've been specced out of a game but Let it Die is going to run it damn close. The minimum requirements for Let it Die are a Core i7-4770 quad-core CPU or equivalent, paired with either a GeForce GTx 680 or Radeon R9 380. This could mean those with a GeForce GTX 1050/Radeon RX 460 may find themselves in trouble.

As for Let it Die's recommended requirements, well, they're just insane. We can only presume these are totally and utterly wrong based on the gameplay footage released. Let it Die looks like an up-rezzed PS3 game so it's difficult to understand why a GTX 1080 or Radeon RX Vega 64 would be recommended unless these are 4K specs. If these specs are for 1080p, then they're probably completely wrong. We'd expect far, far weaker systems than this to be capable of running it without breaking a sweat.

The good news is that Let it Die is free-to-play so there's not too much harm done if it doesn't run very well on your system. There's the not-insignificant matter of a 40GB download, of course, but you shouldn't actually be out of pocket unless you've got a bandwidth cap.
