The minimum and recommended PC specs for Stalker 2 have been announced ahead of the game’s April 2022 release.

While things could change over the coming months, the preliminary specs will give you an idea of what your system needs in order to run it properly.

As noted, it’s suggested you install the game on your SSD, which should reduce load times thanks to the data transfer speed being significantly higher than that of HDDs.

  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X / Intel Core i5-7600K
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • Storage: 150 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: SSD

We got our first look at Stalker 2 gameplay earlier this week during the Xbox + Bethesda E3 2021 showcase, whereas previously, the studio only showed in-engine footage and a quick look at weapons.

Stalker 2 is out on April 28, 2022, and will only be available on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X/S, Steam, and the Epic Games Store at launch.
