Batman Arkham Knight PC specs revealed

Rocksteady has announced the PC requirements for Batman Arkham Knight (opens in new tab)and while you won’t need Waynetech to run the game on the 23rd of June, you will need at least 6GB of RAM and 45GB of storage space.

Recommended system requirements include an i7 3770 processor, last year’s Nvidia GTX 760 graphics card, 8GB of RAM and 55GB of hard drive space. This is even more confirmation than an i7 processor just seems to be the norm from here on in for new gen titles. i5 is now relegated to minimum so things are getting serious.

Cranking settings up to ultra is a serious step up and you’ll need a GTX 980 to see what delightful particle effects and oh-so-brooding shadows are on offer. See the full list below for minimum, recommended and those terribly enticing ultra specs, courtesy of Nvidia.
