Below are the minimum requirements for the game, confirming that that game will not be locked to Windows 10 and will be fairly easy to run. 

 

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows 7 64bit 
    • Processor: Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD equivalent 
    • Memory: 6 GB RAM 
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB or AMD HD7770 2GB 
    • DirectX: Version 11 
    • Storage: 25 GB available space

 

The game will be using the latest version of AMD’s TressFX, giving the game more natural looking hair with a lesser performance hit when compared to the first iteration that was used in Tomb Raider.

Rise of the Tomb Raider reviewed very well when the game was originally release on the Xbox One last year, but had problems selling in large numbers due to launching on the same date as Fallout 4, one of the most popular releases or recent months.
