We already know that EVE Online’s Into the Abyss is going to be changing a few things, but one of those more drastic changes revealed today is the EVE Online recommended specs, meaning that things in New Eden are about to get a whole lot prettier

To be clear, EVE Online’s minimum spec requirements will not be changing, meaning that those of us who own potato PCs are still going to be able to enjoy EVE Online and, by extension, the content of Into the Abyss. That said, those with fire-breathing GPUs will get to take advantage of some new visual treats that have been reportedly in the works for some time.

“As part of our development process we measure client performance of all new features against our recommended specification machine to keep a consistent baseline. This has in the past forced us to turn visuals off that were more resource intensive,” elaborated the post. “For the level of fidelity we wanted to create with the new environments, that simply isn’t an option.”

Here’s the new recommended specs:

Windows:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel i7 Series or AMD Ryzen 7 series @ 3.6 GHz or greater
  • RAM: 16GB or higher
  • VIDEO: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060, AMD Radeon RX 580 or better with at least 4 GB VRAM

Mac:

  • OS: Mac 10.13
  • CPU: Intel i5 Series @ 3.8 GHz or greater
  • RAM: 16 GB or higher
  • VIDEO: AMD Radeon Pro 580 or better with at least 4 GB VRAM

Our Thoughts

Considering the way the screenshots shared in the announcement look, it would definitely seem like EVE Online is about to get a whole lot more atmospheric. Even though its in space. Hah, get it? Atmosphere science joke.

As for launch times, the game will officially go live at 10am PDT on Tuesday, October 24th worldwide. If you’re not the sort of person who’s very good with figuring out time zones, the Bungie website has a handy graphic that will give you a better understanding of when you can start playing the game.

As for Destiny 2 currently, the weekly update also mentions that the Prestige version of the Leviathan Raid will release as scheduled with a discovered exploit included. Why launch broken content? Because the fix, apparently, would do more harm than good at the moment. “The last thing we want to do is fix an exploit some players are using, only to break other parts of the game for everyone. Because of this, we are pushing the fix off to a later date,” explains the post.

Despite the fact that the Prestige will arrive with an exploit, those Fireteams found using it could have their run to World First disqualified.

Our Thoughts

We’re sure that PC players are all ready to take a run at Destiny 2 and have their machines more than prepared for the game’s launch. Still, it’s good to know at least how much hard drive space will be required if nothing else.
