The Evil Within 2 system requirements revealed

From Father Theodore's horrifying flame-throwing henchmen, to its monsters made of limbs and occult-flavoured baddies, The Evil Within 2 is gearing up to surpass its forerunner on the twisted terror stakes. Now, Bethesda has revealed the hardware you'll need to power Sebastian Castellanos' latest jaunt into the unknown.

Much like its forerunner The Evil Within 2's recommended specs are quite demanding, however its minimum requirements shouldn't cause too much of a scare.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400/AMD FX-8320 or better.
  • 8 GB RAM, 40GB free HDD space.
