The spooky season has arrived, and the release of one of the biggest survival horror games of the year, Alan Wake 2, is looming on the horizon. Remedy’s sequel has been 13 years in the making, but the long wait ends on 27 October 2023.

The hype aside, Alan Wake 2 is shaping up to be a visual spectacle and will be released only on current-gen consoles and PCs. Now, just days before its launch, the studio has officially revealed the game’s PC requirements, which look quite demanding.

As mentioned above, Alan Wake 2 is shaping up to be one of the best-looking games of the current generation, which is why these demanding specs make a lot of sense.

Like most current games, an SSD is a mandatory requirement for running Alan Wake 2, and players will need to set aside a whooping 90 GB of space on their systems.

Furthermore, to run the game at the highest settings at 4K with raytracing enabled, players are going to need an RTX 4080 GPU or Ryzen 7  3700X. It’s no slouch, but thankfully, there are a ton of different graphics options available, and even cards like RTX 2060 and Radeon RX 6600 can run Alan Wake 2 at the lowest settings.

Alan Wake 2 launches on 27 October 2023 for PC (Epic Games Store), PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
