Deathloop official artwork and logo

[Update]: Deathloop has now arrived and, outside of some early performance problems, it seems to be getting a pretty positive reception.

After being delayed over and over again, Arkane's time-bending shooter Deathloop now finally seems like it's ready to be unleashed. So unless something goes horribly awry in the next few days, you can expect to see it arrive this September 14th for PC and PlayStation 5.

If you're curious what sort of PC you'll need in order to even run it, as well as what sort of hardware will get you the best looking visuals, you'll also be happy to hear that Bethesda and Arkane have now detailed the PC specs and advanced settings. You'll find the minimum, recommended and ultra 4K requirements below:

Minimum Specs: 1080p / 30 FPS with Low Settings

OS : 64 bit Windows 10 version 1909 or higher
 Processor : Intel Core i5-8400 @ 2.80GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600
 Memory : 12 GB
 Graphics : Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)
 DirectX : Version 12
 Storage : 30 GB available space (HDD)

Recommended Specs: 1080p / 60 FPS with High Settings

 OS : 64 bit Windows 10 version 1909 or higher
 Processor : Intel Core i7-9700K @ 3.60GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
 Memory : 16 GB
 Graphics : Nvidia RTX 2060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 5700 (8GB)
 DirectX : Version 12
 Storage : 30 GB available space (SSD)

Ultra 4K Specs: 4K / 60 FPS with Ultra Settings

 OS: 64 bit Windows 10 version 1909 or higher
 Processor : Intel Core i9-10900K @ 3.70GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT
 Memory : 16 GB system RAM
 Graphics : Nvidia RTX 3080 (10GB) or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT (16GB)
 DirectX : Version 12
 Storage : 30 GB available space (SSD)

All things considered these are some pretty demanding requirements, especially considering that Deathloop doesn't seem to be heavily pushing its visuals. So the way I see it either the various AI tech is incredibly complex and requires a fair bit of power in order to run (which would be downright lovely), or we're going to end up with a Dishonored 2 situation where the initial PC version is just poorly optimized and requires numerous patches in order to iron out all of the major issues.

Needless to say I'm hoping for the former, but whatever the case may be I'll make sure to let you know once Deathloop launches. Until then, you can read a little bit more about the PC version over at the Bethesda website.
