Alien Isolation Linux System Requirements Revealed

/ 2 years ago


Feral Interactive is responsible for a number of excellent Linux ports including XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Company of Heroes 2 and Shadow of Mordor. Their latest venture revolves around the highly-regarded tense horror game, Alien Isolation. The company has released the minimum and recommended specification for Linux users which we have listed below for your convenience:

Minimum Requirements:

  • OS  Ubuntu 14.04.3 (64bit) or SteamOS
  • Processor 2.6 GHz
  • RAM 4GB
  • Hard Disk 35GB
  • Graphics 1GB*
  • Input Keyboard & Mouse

Recommended Requirements:

  • OS Ubuntu 14.04.3 (64bit) or SteamOS or higher
  • Processor 2.6 GHz
  • RAM 8GB
  • Hard Disk 35GB
  • Graphics 2GB**
  • Input Gamepad

*Requires an NVIDIA 600 series or better running driver version 355.11 or better

**Requires an NVIDIA 700 series or better running driver version 355.11 or better

Intel and AMD GPUs are not supported.

A Steam account is required.

Strangely enough, it seems an NVIDIA GPU is required to play the game on Linux. However, these specifications are subject to change and I highly doubt this will be the case on release. AMD users should be able to access this title without any issues and I would argue the port is only certified on NVIDIA cards at this time. Overall, Alien Isolation isn’t too demanding and the Windows version ran flawlessly on virtually every configuration.

Thank you The Dark Side of Gaming for providing us with this information.
