System Shock system requirements

The System Shock PC requirements you need to meet the minimum and recommended specs for the newly reimagined classic sci-fi FPS game.

System Shock system requirements: The face of SHODAN, made up by a group of green wires and circuits

What are the System Shock system requirements? After almost 20 years since its initial release, System Shock and SHODAN are making a comeback. The iconic FPS game has been reimagined both mechanically and visually by developer Nightdive Studios, and you thankfully won’t need a rig out of a science fiction story to run it.

Here are the System Shock system requirements:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 64-bit Windows 10 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 2400
AMD FX 8320
Intel Core i7 3770
AMD FX 8350
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 670
AMD Radeon HD 7870
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
AMD Radeon R9 290
Storage 2GB 2GB

Meeting the System Shock minimum specs should be a doddle for PCs old and new, so don’t worry if you’re still rocking the best graphics card you could afford from several years ago. The now decade-plus old Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 and AMD Radeon HD 7870 pack enough pixel pushing power to start the game, and can be paired with similarly aged processors to boot.

The System Shock recommended specs should make very few gaming PCs sweat. GPU requirements jump to the more powerful but still relatively modest Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 and AMD Radeon R9 290, and they won’t need the best gaming CPU backing them up either. Any quad-core process comparable to the Intel Core i7 3770 or AMD FX 8350 should get the job done.

Continuing the trend of breezy requirements, the System Shock size is a measly 2GB. There’s seemingly no need for an SSD either, if you’d rather play the game on a hard drive for whatever reason.
