Mafia III system requirements don't demand a powerful gaming PC

  1. The gaming season is nearly upon us, with the launch of Mafia III in early October set to kick off a good final quarter of releases. In preparation for the launch of Mafia III, 2K Games and developer Hangar 13 have revealed what sort of PC system specifications are required to run the title.

    The good news is that Mafia III won't require a particularly powerful gaming PC to run. The recommended requirements list just an AMD Radeon R9 290X or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, although 2K didn't state what sort of quality settings were tested to produce these recommendations. If we had to guess, we'd say that you'll need something a bit more powerful for 4K gaming, but the GTX 1060 should suffice at 1080p.

    Recommended Minimum
    CPU Intel Core i7-3770
    AMD FX-8350 at 4.0 GHz
    Intel Core i5-2500K
    AMD FX-8120
    GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 780
    AMD Radeon R9 290X
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
    AMD Radeon HD 7870
    RAM 8 GB 6 GB
    OS Windows 7 (64-bit)
    Storage 50 GB

    Mafia III is a third-person open-world title set in a fictional recreation of New Orleans called "New Bordeaux", with a plot that revolves around Italian mobs, their various crimes, and revenge. The game is set in 1968, and snippets of gameplay have depicted an interesting and detailed recreation of life back in the 60s, including vintage cars and buildings.

    2K Games is set to release Mafia III on October 7 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It's the first title in the Mafia series since 2010's Mafia II, and the first game by development studio Hangar 13.

    So I take it this means it is well-optimized, considering the graphics I've been seeing in videos and screenshots. A welcome counter to Rockstar's excellent GTA 5' PC port. Sure we had to wait a year (which sucks of course) but it was worth it. I hope this is the same deal...

    Not bad at all. I thought it will much worse. :)

    This is about the only so far this year that I'm looking forward to. Although I'm still rocking an 'old' GTX 970, it should be good for fairly high graphics setting at 1080p. I'll just let GFE sort those setting out for me though, it seems to do a decent job (for me).

    A just-released £250+ card isn't considered a powerful gaming PC?
