Here’s What You Need to Run The Callisto Protocol on PC

The Callisto Protocol review 3

With The Callisto Protocol launching this Friday, Striking Distance Studios has revealed the minimum and recommended PC requirements.

So if your PC doesn’t mean the minimum requirements, this space-based survival horror won’t run properly. Will The Callisto Protocol run at all? Maybe. We tried running Resident Evil Village on a PC that sported a (now) underpowered graphics card and it ran. The only problem was that the walls and floor didn’t render half the time.

So, to avoid disappointment, you’ll need to meet the minimum specs if you want to run this on a PC. Thankfully, the requirements aren’t absolutely sky-high. The Callisto Protocol is hitting the last-gen Xbox One and PlayStation 4 so it’s not been created exclusively with the next-gen tech in mind.

The minimum requirements, then, are as follows:

  • OS: Windows 10/11
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • Direct X: Version 11
  • Disk space: 75GB

The recommended requirements are:

  • OS: Windows 10/11
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Memory: 16GB
  • Graphics card: Intel Core i7-8700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Direct X: Versio 12
  • Disk space: 75GB (SSD recommended)

The one snag is that some graphics cards are still a little hard to come by. We’ve spotted cards with an RRP of £200 being listed for £400 or so, though that’s not to say people are actually buying them at that price.

According to the official The Callisto Protocol Twitter account, High and Ultra specs are going to be coming soon. As for the game itself, it arrives this December 2nd on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via the Steam Store or Epic Games Store). And check out the recently-released live action trailer.
