Batman: Arkham Knight’s Beefy System Requirements Have Been Revealed

Nvidia have revealed what you’ll need under the hood of your PC to play the forthcoming Batman: Arkham Knight, which launches in June of this year. Being Nvidia requirements AMD users, myself included, will need to translate the GPU requirements over to AMD’s offerings.

You’re going to need over 50GB of space to install the game, plus some pretty big specs to run it flat out. Interestingly Arkham Knight is an Unreal Engine 3 powered game, so the specs seem oddly high. Unreal Engine 3 was never built with current consoles unified Ram/vRam in mind, so that could explain the surprisingly high Vram demand on PC for a game still using that engine.  It’s worth noting that according to Steam the vast majority of users are using 2GB or less of Vram on their cards.

On a personal level my own setup should just about be able to handle the game, falling between the recommended and ULTRA (note the caps) settings.

Here’s the full requirements:
