Overwatch System Requirements announced

 

The System requirements for Blizzard’s Overwatch have just been announced and are not overly demanding for a all new shooter. 

Blizzard have even been able to tell us which settings and what framerate the system specifications target, though sadly they do not say what resolution. Being a modern title we hope that Blizzard mean 1080p, though we cannot say for sure without confirmation from Blizzard. 

 

 

Below you can have a look at the beta’s graphical options menu, which has a very wide range of graphical options.  One thing I would like to see tweaked is the Field Of View (FOV) option, which is currently a slider and is not given a numerical value. 

 

Overwatch System Requirements announced

 

What we can see here from briefly looking at the specs is that this game will require more than two cores/threads, requiring a AMD tri-core CPU or a Hyperthreaded Intel i3 CPU. On the GPU side either a GTX 460 or a HD 4850 is required. 

The recommended requirements only cover the game at 60FPS on medium settings, so users who want to play the game with higher settings will need even more powerful hardware. 

 

Minimum (targeting 30fps):

  • Operating system: Windows Vista/7/ 8/10 64-bit (latest Service Pack)
  • Processor: Intel Core i3 or AMD Phenom X3 865
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460, ATI Radeon HD 4850, or Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • Memory: 768 MB VRAM, 4 GB System RAM
  • Storage: 7200 RPM with 5 GB available HD space

 

Recommended (targeting 60fps on Medium settings):

  • Operating system: Windows Vista/7/ 8/10 64-bit (latest Service Pack)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 or AMD Phenom II X3, 2.8 GHz
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or ATI Radeon HD 7950
  • Memory: 2 GB VRAM, 6 GB System RAM
  • Storage: 7200 RPM with 5 GB available HD space
