Content Warning system requirements

Another indie horror phenomenon has arrived in Content Warning, and its minimum and recommended specs are a breeze for most gaming PCs.

What are the Content Warning system requirements? It’s no surprise that following the success of Lethal Company (and Among Us, to some degree), another indie horror game would pop up soon to get the gaming community talking. Content Warning is that game, and just like the others we’ve mentioned, it’s graphically simple and will run on any gaming PC from the last decade.

Content Warning doesn’t demand the best graphics card, but it does want you to play with friends to make the experience better. As a co-op horror game, you’re going to want up to three buddies to share the frights with.

Here are the system requirements for Content Warning:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 64-bit or later Windows 10 64-bit or later
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050
AMD R9 380
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
AMD RX 470
CPU Intel Core i5 2.5GHz or equivalent Intel Core i5 3.0GHz or equivalent
RAM 8GB 16GB
Storage 4GB 6GB

The Content Warning minimum requirements are strangely higher than other new games that are arguably more demanding, which could be down to optimization. You’ll need an Intel Core i5 2.5GHz processor or equivalent paired with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or AMD R9 380 graphics card.

Jumping up to the Content Warning recommended requirements is very simple, with it only demanding an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD RX 470 GPU and an Intel Core i5 processor capable of 3.0GHz, or something equivalent.

As for RAM, Content Warning surprisingly asks for 8GB at minimum and 16GB at recommended. We would have expected a flat 8GB requirement given the far-from-demanding visuals, but again this could just be a case of optimization or cautiousness from the developer.

The Content Warning download size differs depending on the system requirement level, with 4GB needed for minimum and 6GB needed for recommended. This could be down to some larger texture files needed for better performance, but again we failed to find any indication within the game to suggest that additional files would need to be downloaded. You won’t need the best SSD for gaming, as a traditional HDD will suffice at all performance levels.

All in all, these paint the picture of a typical easy-to-run indie game, but Content Warning is far from typical in its marketing approach, having been free for the first 24 hours that it was live.

If you’re still unsure whether Content Warning will run on your gaming laptop or PC, take the system requirements test over on PCGameBenchmark to find out for sure.
