Pulling smiley face on the mass extinction of the human race, Destroy All Humans! Remake is a, well, it's a remake of the fairly decent Destroy All Humans! which found its own corner of fame back in the PlayStation 2 days. very obviously going down that Mars Attacks route, Destroy All Humans! is set on 1960s Earth and you play as an alien, looking to annihilate the puny little humans by any means necessary. The remake's coming to PC in 2020 but, ahead of then, we've got our eyeballs on the preliminary system specs for Destroy All Humans Remake.

Destroy All Humans! Remake Minimum System Requirements

  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon R9 280
  • HDD: 25GB Available Hard Drive Space

Destroy All Humans! Remake Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K 6-Core 3.2 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6-Core 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
  • HDD: 25GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

First things first, bear in mind these are preliminary system requirements for Destroy All Humans! Remake. A lot can change between now and DAH!'s 2020 launch, although they do give us a rough guide where Black Forest Games is headed in terms of PC system specs.

As far as system requirements go, these specs for Destroy All Humans Remake tread a fairly predictable line. They're sort of bang in the middle of where we'd expect average sub-AAA specs to be in 2019. That said, you'll need a fairly solid system to even meet the minimum requirements, filled with mid-range components from the last four or so years. The minimum-spec GTX 960 or Radeon R9 280 graphics are probably the major hurdle, while I myself now find myself with an exact minimum spec CPU in the shape of a Core i5-4690K. Time for an upgrade methinks. 

Moving on up to the recommended specs and these seem a little high based on the gameplay we've seen from Destroy All Humans so far. We're hopeful these are going to be lowered somewhat between now and launch. THQ Nordic suggest you'll need a GTX 1060 to max out DAH!'s graphics, along with a hexa-core CPU.
