Death Stranding: here are the PC system requirements

Without question, Death Stranding was one of the most original video games to see a release last year. Coming from the mind of renowned video game designer Hideo Kojima, the game features motion-captured cutscenes featuring a star cast of actors including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Lea Seydoux.

It also features a haunting post-apocalyptic world (and a baby in a pod too), and in true Kojima fashion, it has a good share of weird stuff, like letting players make grenades from their own poop…

Death Stranding was loved and hated in equal measure when it hit the PS4 last year, and now PC players will get a chance to enjoy Kojima’s latest masterwork, as it’s releasing on PC this July.

And those PC gamers wanting to dive into Death Stranding when it arrives this summer will be happy to know that the game’s minimum system requirements are very reasonable, meaning you won’t need a top of the line rig to play the game. Actually, only an Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200, coupled with 8 GB will be needed to run the PC version of Death Stranding. Also, your machine will need at least a GeForce GTX 1050 or AMD Radeon RX 560 video card if you want to trek through Death Stranding’s desolate world on PC.

Those wanting to bump up the detail level and frame rate in the game will need a beefier machine, of course. The recommended system requirements are an Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD Ryzen 1600, plus a GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 590.

The recommended amount of memory is still 8 GB though, while a whopping 80 GB of hard drive space will be needed to install the PC version of Death Stranding, meaning you might want to make room for the game on your hard drive should you be planning to get hold of it come its release date this summer. Also, your machine needs to be running Windows 10 to play Death Stranding on PC, so those still clinging to earlier versions of Windows might want to consider an upgrade.

The PC version also has some perks over the console version of the game, including support for ultra-wide monitors, a photo mode and higher frame rates. It also includes several crossover items from the Half-Life games, including a Headcrab headwear and the Gravity Gloves from Half-Life: Alyx. These are not just cosmetic items but actually grant bonuses in-game, as the game’s creator Hideo Kojima himself explained in a tweet (via VG247.com).

Death Stranding’s launch on PC is something to look forward to then, and it would surely be a great thing for those who play on PC if this actually turns out to be the best version of Hideo Kojima’s latest game when it arrives this summer.

Note: Death Stranding will release on PC on July 14, 2020. Available on PS4 and PC (on Steam and the Epic Games Store).
