System Shock and SHODAN are making a comeback, and you won't need a science fiction set to run it, after almost 20 years since its initial release.
For PCs old and new, meeting the System Shock minimum specs should be a breeze. But don't worry if you're still using the best graphics card you could afford several years ago, because both have enough pixels pushing power to start the game, and can be paired with similarly older processors to boot.
Here are the system requirements for the System Shock system:
|OS||Windows 10 64-bit||Windows 10 64-bit|
|CPU||Intel Core i5 2400AMD FX 8320||Intel Core i7 3770AMD FX 8350|
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 670AMD Radeon HD 7870||Nvidia GeForce GTX 970AMD Radeon R9 290|
The recommended features from System Shock should make very few gaming PCs sweat. GPU requirements upgrade to the more powerful but still relatively modest Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 and AMD Radeon R9 290, and they will no longer need the best gaming CPU to support them. Any quad-core processor comparable to the Intel Core i7 3770 or AMD FX 8350 should do the job.
The System Shock size is a measly 2GB, continuing the trend of breezy demands. There is virtually no need for an SSD either, unless you prefer to play the game on a hard drive for whatever reason.
The System Shock demo can be downloaded right now for a taster, so it's as easy to evaluate whether or not the game is for you.
