Time to Upgrade Your PC: The Witcher 3’s Specs Revealed

For all of you that have an older PC, it might be time to bid it a fond farewell. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s minimum and recommended specs aren’t as high as some of the insanity we’ve seen (cough cough, Dying Light), but this CPU heavy title might make your rig sweat a little bit. The official ‘The Witcher’ Twitter account tweeted out the specifications that PC gamers around the world are going to need to meet in order to enjoy CD Projekt RED’s highly anticipated RPG, and they’re certainly…beefy.

The recommended i7 possession is likely to make a few people run to the online storefront of their choosing in order to upgrade, though overclockers will likely push their chips to the limit to attempt to meet the maximum requirements. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 19th.
