Warner Bros. just announced some last-minute changes to the system requirements for Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. They also noted that some players may experience technical issues depending on their video card.
Here are the new minimum requirements for the game, posted on their forums on Sunday:
- OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
- Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz | AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (2 GB Memory Minimum) | AMD Radeon HD 7950 (3 GB Memory Minimum)
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection required
- Hard Drive: 45 GB available space
The only change from the previously announced minimum specs is the video card. Previously, WB said that you could run the game with a AMD Radeon HD 7870 or other card with 2 GB of memory.
While revealing these new specs, Warner Bros. admitted that AMD users may experience some problems while running Arkham Knight.

Here's hoping that AMD users can properly run Arkham Knight when it debuts tomorrow.
