Aliens: Colonial Marines System Specs Confirmed

We have our fingers crossed that Aliens: Colonial Marines will been worth the wait.

The final system specifications for Aliens: Colonial Marines has been confirmed by the shooter’s official Steam pre-order page. This is the first time specific word of PC hardware requirements for the multi-platform shooter have appeared online, and they’re shown below:

Minimum:

  • OS: Operating System: Windows XP SP3
  • Processor: 2 GHz Intel Dual Core Processor
  • Memory: 2GB RAM (XP), 2GB RAM (Vista)
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8500/ATI Radeon HD 2600 (256 minimum)
  • DirectX®: 9.0c
  • Hard Drive: 20GB free hard disk space
  • Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible
  • Other Requirements: Initial installation requires one-time internet connection for Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, DirectX 9, Microsoft .NET 4 Framework, Visual C++ Redistributable 2005, Visual C++ Redistributable 2008, Visual C++ Redistributable 2010, and AMD CPU Drivers (XP Only/AMD Only)

Recommended:

  • OS: Operating System: Windows XP SP3/Vista/Windows 7
  • Processor: : 2.3 GHz Intel Quad Core Processor
  • Memory: 2GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX560/ATI Radeon HD 5850 (512 minimum)
  • DirectX®: 9.0c

Neither option seems too taxing for modern systems, which isn’t surprising seeing as the Unreal Ending 3-powered game has been in development for over six years.

Interestingly Steam are currently offering potential purchasers the chance to snap up access to the game for 25% off the usual price, along with early access to the S.M.A.R.T rifle. This incentive is a far cry from the game’s bulky initial Limited Edition run which will be sold at other retailers for no extra cost, but really what you’re paying for is convenience.
