Control’s PC Specs Have Been Revealed

Here's what you'll need to run Control upon release next month.

Ahead of its impending arrival next month, PC users who are planning on playing Control have now been informed of what they’ll need to run the game on their own unit.

As listed on the game’s official page on the Epic Games Store, the PC specs for Remedy’s Control have now arrived. Per usual, the minimum and recommended requirements for the game have been listed so that you’ll know what you need at a baseline level and what you need if you want to get the most out of your own experience.

Speaking of the PC version of Control specifically, we were recently able to go hands-on with the game on this platform to see how it’ll look. In the process, we also saw how it’ll look with RTX, or ray tracing, enabled. While you’ll need a hefty RTX 2080 GPU to utilize ray tracing for yourself on PC, it does improve the game’s overall look a fair amount. You can see what those visuals look like in our video within this article.

Control is set to launch next month on August 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’d like to check out the PC specs for yourself, you can find them listed below.
