Tripwire Interactive has revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for the upcoming Killing Floor 2, and I think it's safe to say that it will come as pleasant news to anyone with a less-than-cutting-edge PC. It also announced plans for a Digital Deluxe Edition of the game that will include various sorts of bonus content as well as a copy of the original Killing Floor. First things first:
Minimum System Requirements:
CPU: Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66GHz or Phenom II X2 545
GPU: GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon HD 4830
OS: Win7 64
Recommended Hot Iron:
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz or Phenom II X4 955
GPU: GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950
OS: Win7 64
As for the Killing Floor 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, it will sell for $39.99/£26.99/€36.99, compared to $29.99/₤19.99/€26.99 for the standard release, and come with the DJ Scully character, with a unique voice pack and set of face and body skins; the "Scullyphones" headphones, 3D Glasses, and Bowler Hat cosmetic items, each with selectable variants; a digital art book and soundtrack; and, as mentioned, a copy of Killing Floor. All of the extra content will be available for purchase separately at a later date.
Killing Floor 2 comes out on Steam Early Access on April 21.
