Dishonored 2's Outsider

From everything Bethesda has shown so far Dishonored 2 is looking to be a rather lovely game... in its own shadowy, blood-splattered way. But given the increased graphical fidelity I'm sure some of you are currently wondering if your your PCs actually run it.

Well, wonder no more as Bethesda has just recently decided to reveal not only the minimum and recommended system requirements, but also all of the advanced PC settings you'll be able to fiddle with. While this has no absolutely nothing to do with the system requirements, I just want to point out that one of the settings directly relates to the quality of rat shadows... rat shadows! With that bizarre little bit of trivia now out of the way, here are all of the requirement and PC specific settings:
