Cyberpunk 2077's PC requirements are pleasantly accommodating

Also a look at Night City's environment

We are two months out from Cyberpunk 2077's release on November 19, and after years of silence and a delay, I think we are finally nearing the actual launch. It's always a good sign that development is starting to wrap up when the team can nail down the requirements needed for the PC release, and today we have the final word from CDPR. The requirements and recommended specs are as follows:

Required

  • OS: Windows 7/10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Graphics Card: NVidia 780 3 GB or AMD Radeon RX 470

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G
  • Memory: 12 GB
  • Graphics Card: NVidia GTX 1060 6 GB or AMD Radeon R9 Fury

Direct X 12 is both the required and recommended API. 70 GB of storage is required as well, with an SSD recommended but not required.

After the revelation of Serious Sam 4's shockingly high requirements over the weekend, it's nice to see that Cyberpunk 2077 has a reasonable baseline for its PC release. It's also comforting as Cyberpunk 2077 was used in the marketing reel for the upcoming GeForce 3000 line of video cards, which put some people in fear of being under-prepared for optimal performance.

Rest easy everyone, these requirements are signs of a great port, if you can even call it that as CD Projekt RED was, until recently, known mainly for its PC games.

This hardware news was released as part of Night City Wire Episode 3, as well as two videos on some of the more ambient things you might find in Night City. I have been avoiding as much of the story segments of the marketing campaign as possible, so these world and lore expanding bits are always welcome for me.

The first video acts as a quasi-sizzle reel for what you can expect when you visit Night City. It feels like a tourism video – if that tourism bureau didn't want you to come to Night City at all. It's reminiscent of the Fear City protest pamphlet handed out by striking NYC police and firefighters in the 1970s that pointed out how rampant crime was in the city in an attempt to curry public favor for their demands. The difference here is that this is the cyberpunk genre, where crime and corporate greed are what players and readers are looking for.

The second video expounds upon the crime of Night City by showing off the city's different gangs. There's something here for every type of personality from the God-fearing Valentinos to the muscle-bound Animals. Each gang has its own quirk as if they were straight out of The Warriors and it all just adds so much vibrancy to the world of Night City.

Which gang are you most excited to pal up to when Cyberpunk 2077 releases on November 19?
