Stalker 2 (opens in new tab) got a very entertaining trailer at E3, coming a long way from its janky but deeply beloved predecessor. It's been a long time coming, but we finally have a release date of April 28, 2022 along with both the minimum and recommended system requirements popping up on Steam (opens in new tab).

The specs for Stalker 2 are a little beefy, to say the least. You're going to need at least an RTX 2070 Super if you want to run the game at its recommended specs, so let's hope graphics cards (opens in new tab) aren't like gold dust in 10 months' time, eh? It's also worth noting that GSC Game World is recommending an SSD for both the minimum and recommended specifications for an optimal experience. The game is also 150GB, so you might want to make some room on said SSD.
