4A games and new publisher Deep silver have released the minimum, recommended, and optimum specs you’ll need to play their impending underground post-apocalyptic shooter.

Here are the specs.

  • Minimum

Windows: XP (32-Bit), Vista, 7 or 8
CPU: 2.2 GHz Dual Core e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo
RAM: 2GB
Direct X: 9.0c
Graphics Card: DirectX 9, Shader Model 3 compliant e.g. NVIDIA GTS 250 (or AMD equivalent e.g. HD Radeon 4000 series) or higher

For 3D Vision Support:

NVIDIA GTX 275 or higher
120Hz Monitor
NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

  • Recommended

Windows: Vista, 7 or 8
CPU: 2.6 GHz Quad Core e.g. Intel Core i5
RAM: 4GB
Direct X: 11
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 580/660 Ti (or AMD equivalent e.g. 7870) or higher

For 3D Vision Support:

NVIDIA GTX 580/660Ti or higher
120Hz Monitor
NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

  • Optimum

Windows: Vista, 7 or 8
CPU: 3.4 GHz Multi-Core e.g. Intel Core i7
RAM: 8GB
Direct X: 11
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 690 / NVIDIA Titan

For 3D Vision Support:

NVIDIA GTX 690
120Hz Monitor
NVIDIA 3D Vision kit for Windows Vista, 7 or 8

Those specs aren’t too ba…wait? Did they just suggest the ludicrous nVidia Titan for the optimal experience? You don’t say! Looking at the specs though, I suspect that Metro: Last Light is one of those games that’ll start off with the once ubiquitous “The way it’s meant to be played” splash-screens – something we’re likely to start seeing an awful lot less of in the future. With AMD powering next gen consoles, it’s  a safe assumption that most games will be optimised for that that particular brand of hardware.

Here are the specs you’ll need to get the most out of the game if you happen to play on consoles.

  • Minimum

A PS3 or Xbox 360

  • Recommended

A PS3 or Xbox 360

  • Optimum

A PS3 or Xbox 360

Oh, and here’s the most recent bit of Metro media, showing off the game’s Rangers.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
