Rise of the Tomb Raider PC system requirements and release date announced

After being rather tight lipped for months on the fate of the PC port of Rise of the Tomb Raider Square Enix has finally announced all of the details, well, almost all of them.

I say almost because while they did just recently release the minimum system requirements they completely skipped over the recommended ones. Not a big deal by any stretch as those are more of a guideline than anything else but still a bit odd. In any case, here's the info you came here for:


        OS: Windows 7 64bit

        Processor: Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD equivalent

        Memory: 6 GB RAM

        Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB or AMD HD7770 2GB

        DirectX: Version 11

        Storage: 25 GB available space 

As for the release date Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to arrive on Steam and Windows this January 28th. Keep in mind that while Windows 10 seems to heavily feature in their advertisements Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't exclusive to it.

Along with this announcement they also released some rather detailed screenshots over at their press site so take a look at those if you're interested in how good the game can look maxed out. Its worth mentioning that they're rather large at around 20 MB each so I wouldn't suggest going over them if you're on a tight data cap.
