With a just a week before The Evil Within 2 is set to arrive on the PC, Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have announced the minimum and recommended system needed to make Sebastian Castellanos’ return to the nightmare-filled horrorscape of STEM a “pleasant” one.

Minimum:
— OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
— Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 / AMD FX-8320 or better
— Memory: 8 GB RAM
— Storage: 40GB free HDD space
— Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD 7970 3GB or better

Recommended:
— OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
— Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 / AMD Ryzen 5 1600X or better
— Memory: 16 GB RAM
— Storage: 40GB free HDD space
— Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB / AMD RX 480 8GB or better

Overall, the requirements on both ends of the spectrum are as expected. The GPU requirements for the minimum settings are surprisingly lenient, only requiring a GTX 660 or AMD HD 7970. However, the requirements for the recommended settings are quite demanding as both the GTX 1060 and AMD RX 480 are fairly top of the line, only being beat out by a small handful of models that are presently on the market.

That said, one important thing to note about these specs is that they could potentially change at some point. The publisher mentioned during the announcement that the post will be altered as The Evil Within 2 gets closer to launch. As such, a change can happen, but don’t expect anything drastic — especially with the game coming out in just a week.

The Evil Within 2  is currently being developed by Tango Gameworks, the studio founded by Resident Evil series creator, Shinji Mikami. Players will once again take control of Sebastian Castellanos, as he returns to STEM in search of his kidnapped daughter, Lilly, and investigates the mysterious organization, Mobius, who is behind her abduction.

The Evil Within 2 will arrive on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Oct. 13.
