Dead or Alive 6 system requirements recommends a Core i7 8700 CPU

Dead or Alive 6 is coming on March 1, and with that now just three days away, the PC system requirements have now been posted on Steam. The recommended hardware is a little on the steep side—a Core 17 8700 doesn't come cheap—but generally speaking, if you're packing a reasonably capable gaming PC, you should be set. 

Minimum: 

  • OS: Windows 10 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 or over
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 50GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 11 or over


 
 Recommended:

  • OS: Windows 10 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 8700 or over
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 50GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 11 or over

One of the reasons for the steep-ish hardware requirements is likely that Dead or Alive 6 is built on a new engine that should enable considerably improved graphics over the previous release in the series, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. The Steam listing says it "aims to bring visual entertainment of fighting games to an entirely new level," with graphics "made to be both enticingly beautiful and realistic, bringing out enhanced facial expressions, such special effects as depiction of sweat and dirt on character models, and realistic hit effects."

Hopefully the PC version will also be in better shape than that game was: When Dead or Alive 5 Last Round came out in 2015, it was missing numerous features, including online play, and suffered from downgraded graphics.
