Control's PC specs are friendlier than we originally thought

Developer Remedy released the official PC specs for its upcoming sci-fi action game Control, and they're less demanding than we originally thought.

Below are the minimum and recommended specs for Control on PC, including the requirements to enable ray tracing. (Here's what ray tracing looks like in Control, by the way.)

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 / AMD FX 4350
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 / AMD Radeon R9 280X
