Wolfenstein: The Old Blood offers sanguine PC specs

As a recent popular game has taught us, it’s wise to fear the old blood – but there’s less reason to fear the PC system specs for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

If you could run parent game Wolfenstein: The New Order, there’s a fine chance your machine can cope with this one too. The specs have been tweaked a little bit in the interim between The New Order’s release and the upcoming launch of this stand-alone prequel title, but while the GPU minimums have gone up (slightly) the CPU demands appear to have gone down a little bit.

The Bethesda blog revealed the system spec details, along with some pre-load dates for the game’s various platforms. On PC, pre-loading will be available from 1 May (with Wolfenstein: The Old Blood due on 5 May.)

Here are the minimum and recommended specs. Bethesda calls the latter “the benchmark of how to play the game as the development team intended it to be played.”

Minimum PC Requirements
Intel Core I5-2500 @ 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 @ 3.5 GHz
4 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6870
38 GB HDD

Recommended PC Requirements
Intel Core I7 or AMD FX-8350
8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 280
