Konami has revealed the system requirements for its recently announced Silent Hill 2 Remake, and running all of the recreated horror goodness will require a beefy PC setup.
As reported by PC Gamer, Silent Hill 2 Remake’s Steam page revealed that the recommended system specifications call for a GeForce RTX 2080 or AMD Radeon 6800XT graphics card, as well as an equivalent Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X processor with 16GB of RAM. .
Those graphics cards that were top-of-the-line in 2018 and remain strong options still don’t enable the game at its best. The recommended system requirements will deliver medium quality images at 60fps, or high quality images at 30fps. The latter is for 1080p; 4K can be achieved, but only with DLSS “or similar technology” enabled. Konami has yet to share what specs will be required to run the game at 60fps on high settings, but given the requirements for only 30fps, it’s likely to be quite demanding.

Along with the recommended specifications, the opposite end of the spectrum was also shared. The minimum requirements of Silent Hill 2 – which “should” enable low or medium quality at 1080p and 30fps – require an AMD Radeon RX 5700 or GeForce GTX 1080 equivalent graphics card along with an Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X processor and 12GB of RAM. .
Silent Hill 2 Remake was announced during the Silent Hill Transmission exhibition with a three-minute trailer that showed the 21-year-old game recreated in Unreal Engine 5. It is also coming to PlayStation 5, where Konami promised “seamless” gameplay without any. loading screens, although this is likely to be a PC feature as well and perhaps one reason for its particularly demanding system requirements.
The original is considered one of the greatest horror games of all time and rumors of a remake have been circulating for a long time. Konami restarted talks when it revamped its Silent Hill brand in March (though not its official website) and leaked images apparently appeared online in May before being quickly removed.
