Control’s PC Port Will Not Be Downgraded

Control‘s PC version’s system requirements have significantly been lowered.

Previously, we already wrote about Remedy Entertainment‘s next game’s requirements, but they have been changed and positively. Currently, the official (and, hopefully, final…) system requirements are the following:

Minimum system requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 7, 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 / AMD FX 4350 or better
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 / AMD Radeon R9 280X or better
  • (For Ray Tracing: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or better)
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • DirectX: DX11
  • Additional Features: Widescreen support 21:9 / Remappable controls / Uncapped frame-rate / G-Sync / Freesync suppor

 

Recommended system requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 10, 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-7600K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600X or better
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660/1060 / AMD Radeon RX 580 or better
  • (For Ray Tracing: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or better)
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • DirectX: DX11 / DX12
  • Additional Features: Widescreen support 21:9 / Remappable controls / Uncapped frame-rate / G-Sync / Freesync support

 

It’s much lower than before. Thus, it’s no wonder that the ResetEra forums already started thinking that Control’s PC port might have been going through a downgrade. (Usually, that is the first thought when the system requirements of a game suddenly get LOWERED, close to its launch…) Thomas Puha, Remedy’s PR manager, had to respond to prevent fake news – he rather decided to quickly debunk rumours before they got widespread: „No, it’s not downgraded,” he wrote on ResetEra.

Perhaps they managed to fine-tune their engine (Northlight Engine, first used in Quantum Break, out on Xbox One and PC) to not require strong hardware to run the game properly (but… we’re mere weeks away from its release day). 505 Games will publish the Finns’ third-person, action-adventure shooter on August 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
