Seemingly unperturbed by the failure of fellow adventure game Murdered: Soul Suspect, Square Enix has given Remember Me developer Dontnod Entertainment free reign to develop Life Is Strange, a fascinating looking episodic adventure arriving later this month. 

Student Max Caulfield discovers that she has the ability to rewind time, immediately using it to save the life of a friend who died. What follows is the ultimate butterfly effect, with every decision altering the course of events forever. Dontnod claim that Life Is Strange is going to revolutionise story-based choice and consequence games, as modifying the past can have devastating consequences for the future. Before you get stuck into some head-scratching time-travelling shenanigans though, you'll need a PC that's up to the task. So to find out whether your rig is stuck in the past, check out the official Life Is Strange system requirements.

Life Is Strange Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2.0GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+ 2.0GHz
  • RAM: 2GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 512MB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 315 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 5450 512MB
  • HDD: 3GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 9

Life Is Strange Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000+ 3.0GHz

If system requirements were Limbo athletes then Life Is strange would be Hermes Conrad from Futurama. For a modern-day game hitting the current-gen consoles these are remarkably low requirements, and most members here on Game Debate should have more than enough power to get Life Is Strange up and running. There's not an absolutely massive leap between the minimum Life Is Strange system requirements and the recommended, but a quick glance at the recommended reveals just 2GB RAM needed and a paltry 3GB install. At last, your SSD's can breath a sigh of relief. Of course, it's worth bearing in mind that this is episodic, so depending on how Steam handles the episodes, it may become significantly larger.

Nothing here is particularly eye-catching for Life Is Strange's system requirements, with all of the hardware demands more than half a decade old. As a Telltale-esque adventure game performance and frame rate is unlikely to matter too much, so if you are hovering around the minimum system requirements then you can still expect a playable experience.
