Original Story: May is shaping up to be a big month with game reveals and releases and Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of those games.
Bethesda recently announced the PC specifications to run the game and they’re looking to be pretty hefty. The game calls for an i7 or equivalent AMD process. That’s Intel’s top of the line CPU currently so can your PC run it?
Unfortunately, Bethesda did not specify if those figures are minimum or recommended. My guess, it’s a recommended specification but we have reached out for further clarification.
In addition, Bethesda released info on the install sizes for consoles. Wolfenstein: The New Order will require a minimum of 8GB of hard drive space and 47GB for a complete installation.. However, the PS3 version takes up 17GB as a download and 8GB for the disc version, whereas the Xbox 360 version will require an 8GB install and will ship on four discs.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released on May 20, 2014.
