XCOM 2 System Requirements Revealed

by - 5 years ago


XCOM: Enemy Unknown revisited the classic XCOM formula while adding a modern twist. This resulted in an incredibly challenging turn-based tactics game which managed to cater to passionate XCOM aficionados. On launch, there were some pretty noticeable bugs that marred the tense tactical encounters. Thankfully, most of these annoyances were fixed fairly swiftly. Eventually, the game made its way onto the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but this always seemed a little awkward given the lack of mouse controls. In lieu of the reboot’s success, developer Fireaxis is releasing a sequel in February 2016. Currently, the game is scheduled to be a PC exclusive but that could easily change. Recently, an official Steam listing was added for XCOM 2 which outlines the game’s premise and system requirements:


    • OS: Windows® 7, 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core 2.6 GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5770, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or better
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 45 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card
    • Additional Notes: Initial installation requires one-time Internet connection for Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, Microsoft Visual C++2012 and 2013 Runtime Libraries and Microsoft DirectX.


    • OS: Windows® 7, 64-bit
    • Processor: 3GHz Quad Core
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 2GB ATI Radeon HD 7970, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 or better
    • Storage: 45 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible sound card

As expected, XCOM 2’s graphical style and turn-based combat doesn’t require a top-end computer and should work on the majority of hardware quite nicely. This is great news and makes the game more accessible to a wider audience. Notice that it does take up a large amount of hard disk space but this is a fairly moderate by today’s standards.

    From the article “fixed fairly swirly.” Guessing that was meant to be swiftly. But yes, I am looking forward to this game, played the first one for a long long time, then again when the DLC came out.
