Now Playing: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - Story Preview Trailer

Activision has revealed the PC system requirements fo From Software's upcoming Souls-like game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice via the title's Steam page. The minimum and recommended requirements aren't all that different from what you needed for Dark Souls III, so if you played From Software's 2016 Souls game on PC, you should be fine.

The minimum requirements for Sekiro are slightly higher than what they were for Dark Souls III though. For Sekiro, you need either an Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD FX-6300 processor that's paired with 4 GB of RAM and either a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon HD 7950 GPU. You'll have to bump up your system's specs to run the game on its recommended settings, obviously, but the Steam page does not reveal the difference in targeted resolution and framerate between the two.

Below, we've outlined the full list of both the minimum and recommended PC system requirements.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice PC System Requirements

Sekiro is a very different take on the challenging but fair formula that From Software has developed through Demon's Souls, the Dark Souls series, and Bloodborne. The game changes how combat works--opting for a system that focuses more on guard breaks--and also implementing both parkour and stealth mechanics. Because of the new approach to combat, boss battles will play out very differently in Sekiro as well. Sekiro's protagonist, known as The Wolf, will also speak, and journey through a Japanese drama that utilizes flashbacks to flesh out the game's cast of characters. There won't be online multiplayer in Sekiro either, but this means the game will support a pause function.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice launches on March 22, and it's coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Looks like that GTX 970 is still coming in handy then.

I'm jumping in, I hope this proves activision that SP games in their rooster isn't a bad idea. I haven't purchased anything from them since prototype 2.

@untouchables111: It's a current-gen console game. I can't wait for the next-gen consoles so I can take advantage of my CPU cores.

Good for them. I am sure many people will get it for PC now. Myself included.

Although I am not a big fan of the Souls games, I will give this one a go.

@starjay009: same boat, I believe this game is pretty different in comparison, so that's a Day One purchase from me. 👍
