Turtle Rock Studios have revealed the PC specifications for their upcoming multiplayer shooter Evolve, and if you were a little dismayed at the recent news that The Witcher 3‘s specs were going to be brutal, then you’ll be pleased to know that Evolve will be far less unforgiving.

The minimum/recommended requirements for running the game are as follows:

  • SYSTEM RAM: 4GB
  • NVIDIA VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 560

Turtle Rock also announced the pre-order bonuses that will be coming exclusively to Xbox One owners, with a selection of unlockable characters being made available right off the bat that you’d otherwise have to play through the game to access. 

“If you pre-purchase Evolve on Xbox One before or during the Xbox One Open Beta, you get exclusive instant access to Wraith, Parnell, Abe, Caira, and Cabot during the entire beta,” Turtle Rock stated. “Better yet, pre-purchasing on Xbox One guarantees that these characters are instantly unlocked when you pick up the final game which launches on February 10th.”

So the pre-order bonus will essentially lessen the game’s replay value? The video game industry is weird.
