One week before the start of the Hitman beta on PC, IO Interactive decided to reveal the PC requirements for its upcoming title.
|Hitman PC Specs||Minimum||Recommended|
|CPU||Intel Core i5-2500k (3.3 GHz, Sandy Bridge) or AMD Phenom II X4 940 (3.0 GHz, K10)||Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4 GHz, Ivy Bridge) or AMD FX-8350 (4.0 GHz, Piledriver)|
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870||Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 or AMD Radeon R9 290|
|DirectX||Version 11||Version 11|
|RAM||8 GB||8 GB|
|OS||Windows 7 (64-bit)||Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 (64-bit)|
One factor not included in the chart was the amount of storage required for the game. That could be due to the fact that the game will come out in separate parts, and the developers might not have a definitive estimate (yet) as to the game’s storage requirements. The Intro Pack, which comes out on March 11, contains only the Prologue and Paris missions. Two additional areas open up in April and May, and then three more maps will be released in June, July and August.
Of course, you can buy the entire game before the full batch of content comes out for $59.99. The standalone Intro Pack will cost $15, and each additional map will cost $10. If you want to upgrade to get the rest of the game after the Intro Pack, it will cost an additional $50. You could also wait to get the full game on one disc at the end of the year.
