CD Projekt RED has released the minimum and recommended requirements for their upcoming open-world action RPG ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.’

Known primarily as a series that constantly puts high standards on its running power with each new entry, ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ is no different this time around requiring a relatively high powered rig in order to run even at its lowest settings. A full list of the requirements can be found below.

CD Projekt RED recently delayed ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ from its initial February 24 release date to May 19 due to concerns over technical issues. According to a post on their website, the studio cited that “when we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.”

‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ is the newest entry in the critically acclaimed action RPG series. It takes places where the ‘The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings’ occurs and puts players once more in the shoes of Geralt of Rivia, who has embarked on a personal journey. However, when a mysterious army known as the Wild Hunt suddenly goes on the warpath across the Northern kingdoms leaving nothing but death and destruction in their wake, it becomes apparent that Geralt holds the key to stopping them in their tracks.
