It's wild to think but all these years later, the seminal Beneath a Steel Sky is set to enjoy a full-blown sequel.Beyond a Steel Sky transports the classic point and click adventure game to a new 3D world, one in which an AI surveillance system watches over a Utopian populace keeping them safe, or so they hope. Revolution is promising a dynamic world, divergent choices, and multiple solutions to puzzles rather than relying on putting the rubber chicken on the zip wire. Beyond a Steel Sky is set in a comic-book style world with proper 3D exploration, and here are the system specs you'll require to run it.

As far as traditional adventure games go, Beyond a Steel Sky is pretty damn demanding. Compared to modern AAA titles though, this should be a cinch to run for most.

Beyond a Steel Sky's minimum specs recommend a 2GB DirectX 11 video card (anything from past seven years or so should do) alongside a dual-core processor, but preferably quad-core. A meagre 4GB system RAM is also all that's required to get BaSS up and running.

For those who want to crank the cel-shaded visuals up, Beyond a Steel Sky will run best on a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 280X and upwards. For modern equivalents, look toward a Radeon RX 570 or GeForce GTX 1650.
