Bethesda Reveals Dishonored PC Requirements


The PC system requirements for Dishonored are actually pretty reasonable.

Dishonored looks hot. Luckily for those of the mouse-and-keyboard set, that hotness will apparently be attainable without having to fork over $700 for the latest and greatest GPU from Nvidia or ATI. Bethesda revealed the minimum PC system requirements today and while the game is optimized for 64-bit systems and multi-core CPUs, the baseline requirements aren't what I'd call outrageous. Behold!


OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7
Processor: 3.0 GHz dual core or better
Memory: 4 GB system RAM
Hard Disk Space: 9 GB
Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible with 512 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
Sound: Windows compatible sound card

And then of course there's the recommended spec, which is actually quite similar but for the quad-core CPU and slightly upgraded video card:


OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7
Processor: 2.4 GHz quad core or better
Memory: 4 GB system RAM
Hard Disk Space: 9 GB
Video Card: DirectX 9 compatible with 768 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
Sound: Windows compatible sound card

In case you weren't aware, Bethesda has previously revealed [http://www.bethblog.com/2012/07/13/a-look-at-dishonoreds-many-ui-options/] that the PC version of Dishonored will offer a number of exclusive features including a shortcut bar mapped to the top-row number keys which will give direct access to powers and items, a field-of-view slider and various options and "graphical toggles" that will let gamers take full advantage of their rigs. Yeah, it's good to be elite.

Dishonored [http://www.amazon.com/Dishonored-Pc/dp/B005C2D2H4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1344980060&sr=8-2&keywords=Dishonored] comes out on October 9 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

As long as it's not Window 8, AmIright?
oh good heavens. if that ever becomes a requirement, I will resort to other means to play the game, and that'll be a first.

OT: not too bad for the specs, will check out trailers/gameplay when it comes out, but otherwise got no cash on cash to spend on games right now:/

FOV Slider! Yes! Bethesda and Arkane, you get a cookie.
Otherwise, the specs are reasonable for what I assume is a Unreal Engine 3 game. Fingers crossed that it'll be optimized enough.

FOV Slider! WOOHOO! Cheers for Bethesda!

I hate the default FOV in Skyrim. It's too close for my comfort. Makes me sick. Sure you can change the FOV through the developer console, which is the first I do when I fire up a save, but really, no FOV slider? This is the future! Embrace it and give us FOV sliders!

Not really, the 5450 is not for gaming and if the 5850 is the baseline then you are out of luck.

You may be able to get it to run but at low settings I reckon.
if all I need is a newer card then that won't be problem, even if it's baseline I can probably get it run on low like you said.

So what's this game even about? I've been bored and watching a bunch of ZP episodes lately and the ad for this has been coming up a LOT (every time I'm not watching the ad for Oblivion Island, which looks like Alice in Wonderland crossed with a Final Fantasy cutscene) and from what I gather you're aaaa........ghost? Telepath? Someone who has magic and a shank. Beh, can't say I'm really impressed by it. Looks like another world rendered in the grey'n'brown spectrum...hell, even the music playing during those ads SOUNDS grey'n'brown.

Have you been under some kind of internet rock for past weeks? Dishonored is what all the latest buzz is about in terms of freedom of choice, open world and fun ways of killing your targets with swarms of exploding rats!
And I would call it more gray and silver/steel than gray and brown :p (Seriously, haven't seen much brown in those trailers)

If you want to know what the game is about, search the escapist a bit. There have been several front-page news about it in the last month.

Are you kidding me? Game doesn't even look better than Crysis and has such requirements? Somebody's been throwing around more polygons and postfx than is necessary.

:p Apparently I have, because I know next to nothing about this game. Just looks like a guy with magic in one hand and a shank in the other. Don't get me wrong, I fully endorse a protagonist that uses a shank, but I still don't know anything about this game.

And there's some brown in those trailers, but the point is it seems bleak, dingy, and dull, like the majority of the games coming out these days. :p

Seems like my rig will be needing a processor upgrade in the near future, probably at the start of the next console generation. Well, time to start saving and training my willpower to resist the next Steam sales (winter?).

Also, GFWL? Really? I'm really, really, really disappointed. The worst part is that if I buy it from Steam, I will have to have both of the running. And buying a physical copy isn't an option considering that I would pay at least 30% more than on Steam.

Dishonored is... well how should I put it... it's everything that Skyrim should have had in order to be the best game of all times, but for some unknown reason didn't have.

But seriously, what have you been doing if you don't know about Dishonored? I would say it's even more hyped than Skyrim was. Which says a lot considering that it's a completely new IP.
