Bethesda announces PC system requirements for upcoming Wolftenstein title

You may remember playing the original Castle Wolfenstein on a Commodore 64 system over three decades ago. Boy, have times have changed. PC system requirements have gotten more stringent with each new Wolfenstein title, and if you want to experience Wolfenstein: The New Order at a solid 60 frames per second, you'll need to bring a Core i7 or equivalent AMD chip to the party.

You'll also need 4GB of system RAM, 50GB of hard drive space, an Nvidia GeForce 460 or AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6850 or higher graphics card, high speed internet connection, and a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.

"The system requirements are based on the game being a next-gen experience running at 60fps. These are the system requirements to deliver the PC game as it was intended to be experienced," Bethesda announced in a blog post .

A Steam account and activation will also be required, so heads up there.
