Word has come from CD Projekt RED, by way of a widely distributed press release, regarding the official PC requirements for their upcoming and hugely anticipated RPG, The Wither 3: Wild Hunt. Frankly speaking, none of the requirements should surprise you if you’ve viewed any of the games released gameplay.

Gamers hoping to run The Withcer 3 are going to need a bare minimum of 6GB of Ram, a predicted DX11 supported GPU and 40GB of HDD space, which is actually less than I was expecting. So that was a nice surprise. Minimum CPU requirements are coming in at a 3.2GHZ Intel Core i5 or an AMD Phenom II X4 940.

Nvidia GeForce GTX660 or an AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870 are the listed minimum required GPU’s to go alongside the aforementioned 6GB of Ram and  the DX11 support. CD Projekt RED recommends that you use a Intel i7 3770 3.4 GHZ or equivalent AMD CPU bolstered by 8GB of RAM if you want to enjoy The Witcher 3 in earnest.

Minimum System Requirements:

CPU: Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz or AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
GPU: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660 or AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
RAM: 6GB
OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)

    Juicy specs but not unexpected. I updated my last gaming rig just for The Witcher 2 and I see many people doing the same for The Witcher 3.
    It’s games like these that push boundaries and motivates other devs to reach or go beyond it. Can’t wait to see how this game feels.

    I think anything above the minimum here and this game wouldn’t have sold as well as it deserve to.

      Haha. I feel u. I never played the old Witcher games. But now I’ve become a fan of CDP. Super excited for Wild Hunt, and especially, 2077.
