Control's PC Specifications Teased on Epic Store

Despite speculation, things have been rather quiet on the PC requirements side of things. While pre-orders for Control started back in March, the specifications for the game weren't discussed publically, with the additional months being needed to get the precise minimum and recommended hardware and software. That was until recently.

While Remedy hasn't confirmed or shared news of the specifications needed on their social media channels, the Epic Store has recently posted the recommendations in full at the bottom of the Control store page which has caught the attention of various media outlets including GamespotDualShockersPC Gamer, and more.

These are the PC specifications listed by the Epic Store:

Minimum RequirementsOS: Windows 7, 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i5-7500 / AMD Ryzen 3 1300X (or better)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD RX580 (or better)
For Ray-Tracking: GeForce RTX 2060
Direct X: DX11
Recommended RequirementsOS: Windows 10, 64-bit
Processor: Intel i5-8600K / AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (or better)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti / AMD Radeon VII (or better)
For Ray-Tracking: GeForce RTX 2080
RAM: 16 GB
DirectX: DX11 / DX12
For Ray-Tracking, the minimum is a GeForce RTX 2060, which makes Control fairly hefty to run but also delivers gorgeous visuals. You can learn more about the ray-tracing and take a look at some gameplay previews, HERE.

We reached out earlier this week to Remedy to double-check the specifications needed. We'll let you know if we hear back or if the requirements are confirmed through their social media.
