While it has been known for many months that ReCore would be coming to PC, its Windows 10 exclusivity has never been officially confirmed... until now. According to the recently posted system requirements, ReCore is going to be releasing only for the Xbox One and Windows 10, though there is some hope for this changing in the distant future.

Quantum Break, also a Windows 10 launch exclusive, is soon going to be available for Windows 7 and 8, effectively making the whole thing a timed exclusivity. Hopefully the same will apply to ReCore as well, because while I have nothing against Windows 10 I do like seeing seeing games available across a wide variety of platforms, without any silly barriers put in place.

That massive tangent aside, here are the full system requirements, straight from the Microsoft store:


OS: Windows 10

Architecture: x64, X64

DirectX Version: 11

Memory: 8 GB

Video Memory: 2 GB

Processor: Intel Core i5-4460, 2.70GHz or AMD FX-6300

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7



OS: Windows 10

Architecture: x64, X64

DirectX Version: 11

Memory: 16 GB

Video Memory: 4 GB

Processor: Intel Core i5 45690, 3.9 GHz or AMD Equivalent

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9

The requirements are fairly standard stuff for a multi-platform release, though there is one rather odd exception - the processor. Most modern games these days are perfectly content running on a i3 processor (or equivalent) for minimal settings, so seeing ReCore start off with an i5 is a bit of an interesting change. Though its nothing too surprising given how far technology has been pushed forward.

ReCore will be arriving for the PC and Xbox One next week, September 13th, at a $40/€40 price tag.
