Life is Strange: True Colors PC Requirements Revealed

Square Enix has announced that Life is Strange: True Colors will now feature Ray Tracing Shadows on PC! Also, the game now has some official system requirements for PC users too. Of course, we all know you’ll need compatible ray-tracing graphics cards for one aspect, but how about the rest of the hardware? Well, thankfully, it seems you’ll be able to run this game on some seriously old hardware. Are you still rocking an AMD Phenom II X4 or Intel Core i5-2300? Then you’re in luck… well, just barely I guess.

Life is Strange: True Colors

The game supports both DirectX 11 or 12 and requires 6-8GB of RAM and around 30GB of HDD space. Honestly, it seems Life is Strange is not going to be too hard to get running, really. Of course, the recommended specifications are a lot higher, but now exactly unattainable either. An RTX 590 or GeForce GTX 1060 will get the job done.


The “minimum requirements to run the game in 4K, at Cinematic quality presets, 30fps, with or without ray-tracing activated.” as Square Enix put it themselves, are a fair bit more demanding though. Requiring an Intel Core i7-7700 or AMD Ryzen 5 2500X, paired with either an RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT. Overall though, that’s got to be one of the widest ranges of compatible hardware I’ve ever seen on a game.
