Posted by 125805786 on

The Witcher 3 fight, magic With many great games on tap, 2015 is bound to be another solid gaming year, and at the top of many gamers’ wish-list sits the conclusion to the critically-acclaimed Witcher trilogy -- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt! For those opting to play the game on the PC, CD Projekt Red has released the system requirements, and they are intense. To bring its massive open-world to life, The Witcher 3 has impressive visuals as one of its main highlights. Unfortunately, that means running the game at its highest settings and at full HD will squeeze just about everything out of your PC, so be prepared to do some upgrading. For an idea of how demanding The Witcher 3 is, it brought many high-end GPUs to their knees during internal testing. As often is the case with high-end PC games, you need a very powerful CPU to run things smoothly at optimal setting, meaning a top-notch i7 and its AMD equivalent. Make the jump for the minimum and recommended system requirements, and let us know if your PC can handle Geralt’s final adventure:

The folks at CD Projekt don’t kid around when it comes to quality assurance… Will you be picking up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One?
