Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Hits Steam January 9; Crazy System Requirements

As part of the Steam Holiday Sale 2013, Konami have officially placed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on Steam. It’s available for pre-order right now for $19.99, which is 33% off, with the game being released on January 9, 2014. It’s finally coming to PC, packed in with mission DLC, costumes and new options.

Not only that, but it appears as though the PC version will come with some pretty spectacular PC requirements. Of course you can expect a game of these rules of nature to be very graphic-heavy, but these minimum requirements are something else.

  • OS: XP or Vista or 7 or 8
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 2400
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia Geforce GTS 450
  • DirectX: Version 9.0c
  • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card

If nothing sticks out to you too crazily, the minimum graphics card requirement is a high-end card, according to GPU benchmarks. The same goes for the processor, with the Intel Core i5 2400 being a high end CPU. Whatever Platinum Games has created, it surely better be beautiful.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to Steam on January 9, 2014. Perhaps you should ask Santa for a new GPU/CPU this Christmas!

    A GTS 450 isn’t a high end card. The i5 is the only component even remotely high end.

      If you click the links, both the minimum CPU and GPU are in the highest-end of the website’s benchmark lists.

        Despite what the website says, I wouldn’t consider a 3 generation old Nvidia card that cost less than $100 when it was first released a high end card.. High end Nvidia cards for that generation would be a GTX 470 or GTX 480, with the GTX 460 being mid range.. The GTS 450 is considered a old low end budget gaming card to most PC gamers.

        The GTS 450 may be more powerful than a integrated GPU found on typical home PCs but it’s far from a “high end GPU” even for it’s generation.
