Remedy’s next title is looking like something a little special but the system requirement that have been revealed on the Epic Game Store are quite hefty.
The minimum requirements are a 1060 or RX580 which means gamers may have to take the plunge and upgrade to get the most from the game. The Recommended specs are no less than a 1080Ti or AMD Radeon VII or better.
Remedy appears to not be pulling any punches with Control, if you want to play it as they expect you to play it then you are going to have to step up and get some real power into your rig.
Update: New system requirements have been released which are less demanding.
