Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II has relatively modest requirements for its PC version. You can get away with a four-generation-old CPU and a three-generation-old GPU and still play the game at 1080p.

The highly anticipated sequel to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, confusingly name Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, is all set to hit PC and Xbox on May 21 via Steam and Xbox Game Pass. Ninja Theory, the game's developers, have now revealed its PC system requirements. The barrier for entry is surprisingly low, which is rare for a modern-day AAA title. On the other hand, Xbox Series S|X players will be stuck at 30 FPS for the foreseeable future. Starfield, one of Xbox's flagship titles, will get a 60 FPS mode in the coming weeks, almost a year after it landed.

CPU Ryzen 5 2600/Core i5-8400 Ryzen 5 3600X/Core i5-9600 Ryzen 5 5600X/Core i7-10700K Ryzen 7 5700X/Core i5-12600K

VRAM 6 GB 8 GB 8 GB 12 GB

Lastly, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will need at least 16 GB of system memory and 70 GB of hard drive space. Many developers often neglect Intel GPUs in their system requirements page, and it is good to see Intel Arc included in the list. Exactly how the game will perform in Intel hardware remains to be seen.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II should run fine on handhelds like the Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally and MSI Claw, but there's no word about official compatibility just yet. It supports all AI-powered upscalers such as DLSS 3, FSR 3 and XeSS 1.3, meaning you squeeze more frames out of weaker hardware.
