The Steam store page has just gone live for Ready or Not, or Ready or SWAT as I like to call it. We're still a far cry away from its expected 2020 launch, but this tactical first-person shooter inspired by the classic SWAT series will be granting Alpha access to those who buy the $120 'Supporter' edition *wipes water from eyes*. That means we've got the full PC system specs for Ready or Not, although these could well change somewhat in the long to launch.

Ready or Not Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 3.0 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 960 Radeon R7 370
  • API: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 30 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Ready or Not Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K 3.8 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 6 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB
  • API: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 30 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Ready or Not isn't exactly pushing for the highest-end visuals, although it certainly looks decent enough. To that end, Ready or Not has a set of system requirements that shouldn't have too many PCs breaking a sweat, particularly once we head into its 2020 launch window.

The minimum specs for Ready or Not require a 2GB DX11 video card such as the GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon R7 370, paired with a fairly low-end quad-core processor. You'll likely have to sacrifice a number of graphical options to run it on such a system but it should be perfectly playable. In a game that's all about split-second decision making though, any frame rate hitches could be the difference between a dead hostage and a successful mission. The top priority should be a high, locked frame rate rather than enabling all the graphical bells and whistles.

Ready or Not's recommended system requirements appear to be tailored towards 1080p/Ultra, although w have a sneaking suspicion such a system could also cope pretty well at 1440p. Here the specs are upgrade to a high-end quad-core or mid-range hexa-core CPU, along with a couple of most popular mid-range graphics cards in existence right now - either the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or the Radeon RX 580 8GB. The GTX 1060 3GB and Radeon RX 580 4GB should also be just fine, but the smaller cache of VRAM may mean knocking a couple of visual settings down.

I got to admit, name of this game did give title nice flavor... :-D Too bad requirements aren't all that high, since it would make it even funnier. :-D

ugh... more "Pre-order / sheep tester" BS...
Pay 120$ for a product which you don't even know if it will be ready and / or successful & alive after it releases - where do you get off
