mortal-kombat-xThe PC System Requirement were announced and I have a mixed feeling. Lets look at the requirements before going any further:

MINIMUM:
    • OS: 64-bit: Vista, Win 7, Win 8
    • Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz | AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz
    • Memory: 3 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 | AMD Radeon HD 5850
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space
RECOMMENDED:
    • OS: 64-bit: Win 7, Win 8
    • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 | AMD Radeon HD 7950
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Hard Drive: 40 GB available space

As seen, the minimum requirements aren’t that bad or high except maybe for the i5 CPU but overall are more than manageable for anyone with a PC from 3-8 years ago. I do think though that the recommended are a bit over the top. i7 and 8 GB Ram? The standard amount of Ram these days is 4-6 so giving 8 GB is a bit over. I also think that i7 is unnecessary and with a good optimization the game should require less.

Now I know that this is the next gen and so on but even then, this is bit over. Of course I will need to test the game to confirm as this may turn out to be another The Evil Within where they recommended insane specs only for the game to run max at much lower specs. Guess we will have to wait and see.

Regardless of all, the game uses a new engine and looks great. Judging from the videos we saw, it also plays great and smooth so I’m not surprised the recommended specs are high. Im still unsure if I will be picking this up on the PC or Xbox One but I am glad that another Mortal Kombat is making its way to the PC thanks to Steam.

You can preorder the game on Steam and get the free DLC with it for $59.99.
