Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga now has minimum PC system requirements

Here’s the hardware you will need to run Hellblade: Senua’s Saga on PC

Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga is set to be one of Microsoft’s most graphically impressive games of 2024. The game is launching on May 21st on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC, and it looks stunning.

On consoles, Microsoft and Ninja Theory have confirmed that Hellblade 2 will run at 30 FPS. This is true for both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. On PC, the game can be played with an unlocked framerate. This will allow owners of powerful gaming PCs to run the game at higher framerates.

Now, the minimum PC system requirements for Hellblade 2 are now available on Steam. This is the minimum level of PC hardware that gamers should have when running Hellblade 2. As such, we expect these listed components to be used with a 30 FPS framerate target.

Hellblade 2 minimum PC requirements

Windows 11 and SSD storage are minimum requirements for Hellblade 2. Gamers should play this game with an Nvidia GTX 1070, Radeon RX 5700, or Intel ARC A580 or better graphics card. These three graphics cards are 8GB GPUs. With this in mind, we do not expect this game to run well on CPUs with 6GB of VRAM or less

CPU-wise, Hellblade 2’s minimum CPUs are AMD’s Ryzen 5 2600 and Intel’s i5-8400. Both of these CPUs are 6-core processors. This matches the number of cores that Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have available for gaming workloads. AMD’s Ryzen 5 2600 is a Zen 2 processor. That’s the same CPU architecture that Microsoft used for their current generation consoles.

OS: Windows 11
Processor: Intel i5-8400 | AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1070 | AMD RX 5700 | Intel Arc A580
Storage: 70 GB available space
Additional Notes: SSD Required

We expect Microsoft to release finalised PC system requirements for Hellblade 2 soon. After all, the game is launching in little more than three weeks.
