Stalker 2 PC - here’s the minimum and recommended specs

Stalker 2 isn't out for a while yet, but you can still look over the PC specs to see if your system will be up to par upon release.

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.
