Death Stranding is finally heading to PC next month, but ahead of that 505 Games and Kojima Productions have revealed what kind of rig you'll need if you're planning to explore post-apocalyptic America with Norman Reedus and his bike. 

The minimum specs are pretty easy going, if you're willing to play at 720p and only get 30fps, which puts it a bit below the PS4 version. 

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel® Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB or AMD Radeon RX 560 4 GB
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible 

There are two sets of recommended specs, one for 30fps and one for 60fps, both at 1080p.  

Recommended 30fps

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti  4 GB or Radeon RX 570 4 GB
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible

Recommended 60fps

  • OS: WIndows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB or AMD Radeon RX 590
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible

Nothing too steep here, though as someone with a 1440p monitor, I would have liked to have seen some maxed out requirements. As a port of a PS4 game, however, I don't imagine you'll need anything too fancy to see it at its best. 

Along with the PC requirements, we've also been given a look at some exclusive screenshots and some of the Half-Life-inspired goodies you'll be able to get your hands on. Take a gander below.
