Alan Wake II is a famous upcoming survival horror game, developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Epic Games Publishing.
After a long wait, Remedy Entertainment has finally revealed the official system requirements that users’ PCs must meet if they want to experience this horror game. Overall, you need a system with powerful configurations to take full advantage of Alan Wake II’s graphical features.
Remedy Entertainment has released detailed performance targets for various hardware configurations and graphics setups. For example, for a mid-quality 1080p Alan Wake II experience without ray tracing, Remedy recommends setting up an RTX 3070 combined with a Ryzen 7 3700X. This configuration is enough to provide a relatively smooth 60FPS experience.
In case the player wants to enable ray tracing effects, the system requirements will be more stringent. For low level ray tracing experiences at 1080p/30 FPS, RTX 3070 is the recommended minimum. Users can use the RTX 4080 to get higher quality ray tracing with the path tracing feature. Even then, the DLSS upscaling feature must still be used in Performance mode just to maintain 60 FPS.
Minimum configuration (No Ray Tracing)
Graphics card: GeForce RTX 2060, Radeon RX 6600
CPU: Intel i5-7600K or equivalent AMD
High-end configuration (High Ray Tracing, Path Tracing enabled – 2160P – FPS 60)
Graphics card: GeForce RTX 4080
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X or Intel equivalent
RAM: 16GB Operating system
Alan Wake II launches on October 27 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC platforms (via Epic Games Store). This will be a purely digital release, priced at 60 USD (about 1.4 million VND) on console and 50 USD (about 1.2 million VND) on PC. Alan Wake II promises two more expansions after launch.
