The time has come. Valve is about to release its first non-VR game since DOTA 2 all the way back in 2013. Artifact is a collectible card game based in the DOTA 2 universe, overseen by legendary Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield. Like Blizzard, Valve tends to make games these days that will run on just about any system, and based on the Artifact PC system requirements, Artifact is going to be no different.
Microsoft is hosting its big X018 event tomorrow afternoon, where it'll be showcasing its Xbox One and Windows 10 gaming line-up for the months ahead. The system requirements for Crackdown 3 have just popped up on the Windows Store, presumably ahead of an imminent release date announcement.

UPDATE: Darksiders 3's preliminary system requirements were revealed all the way back in May of 2017 so, unsurprisingly, they've changed majorly since then. Gunfire Games has now revealed the final PC specs for Darksiders III ahead of the November 27th launch.
A remake of one of Blizzard's most beloved games of all time, WarCraft 3: Reforged was announced over the weekend. Warcraft III: Reforged is the classic real-time strategy game given a spit and polish with reworked visuals, enhanced audio, remastered cut-scenes, and stronger map-making and mod support. For those after an RTS fix, Warcraft 3: Reforged could be just the thing. Looking at the newly released system specs for Warcraft III, it should also run on just about anything.
UPDATE: The 4K system requirements for Just Cause 4 have also now been released. Playing Just Cause 4 at 4K screen resolution will naturally require a top-end gaming PC. For the sake of simplicity we've added the Just Cause 4 4K system specs to the original article below.
UPDATE: Okay, DICE has updated the Battlefield V PC system requirements once again, but this is the final time, we promise. The Battlefield 5 specs have changed slightly since the beta, while we've also been given the recommended requirements for the ray-traced RTX version of Battlefield V.
We're five days away from the Fallout 76 beta test going live on PC. With progress from the beta carrying over to the main release on November 14th, next Tuesday is effectively a soft launch for Fallout 76.

Just like the game itself, the system requirements for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales have chopped and changed over the last few months. With the October 23rd launch imminent though, CD Projekt RED has settled on the system specs. Originally set to be included with Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales has spiraled into its own 30-hour long RPG, swapping traditional combat for card battling. At first blush, Thronebreaker looks like an RPG that should be playable on just about any system, but let's see how that shakes out...
UPDATE: IO Interactive jumped the gun a little bit and announced Hitman 2's PC system specs the day the game was officially revealed at E3 2018. We're around a month away from launch and now the system requirements for Hitman 2 have been updated to more accurately reflect the demands. If you were happy to see you matched the recommended specs originally, you'd best look away now...
The busy folks at Milestone are back with yet another racer. Ride 3 follows in the tracks of Ride 2, having taken 2017 off to revamp the series' third outing. Ride 3 will be the most feature-packed game yet in the motorbike racing series, offering over 30 tracks and more than 230 unique bike models, both contemporary and historic. Before you start testing that hog out for size though, be sure to give the Ride 3 PC system specs a once-over.
