Upcoming open-world shooter RAGE 2 has gone gold. The game was originally announced by Bethesda in May last year, after Walmart Canada leaked it.

To prepare players for the game, Bethesda has put together a guide as to what people can expect from different platforms. The company says it's focusing on speed rather than pushing maximum pixels. On PlayStation 4 (base models and Slim models), RAGE 2 will run at 1080p with a framerate cap of 30 FPS. On OG Xbox One models and Xbox One S, the game will run in 900p resolution with a 30 FPS cap. On Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, RAGE 2 will run at 1080p with a 60FPS framerate cap.

Naturally, PC players can enjoy uncapped framerates and whatever resolution their system supports. Of course, that doesn't come without some fairly hefty tech recommendations. Here are the specs Bethesda recommends you should have if you want to play RAGE 2 to its fullest:

  • 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Vega 56 8GB
  • Storage: 50 GB available space

Minimum specs are as follows:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 3GB or AMD R9 280 3GB
  • Storage: 50 GB available space

Even those playing the game on the lowest settings will need a fairly accomplished machine. Still, any PC gamer should be able to give this one a spin. Bethesda has also added a few additional visual options for RAGE 2 players. There's a 50-120 degree FOV slider, as well as options to switch off the HUD, motion blur, and depth of field effects. In addition, players can change the targeting reticle style, and there's support for ultra-wide (21:9) and super ultra-wide (32:9) displays.

RAGE 2 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 14th worldwide. Interested parties can still pre-order the game for an extra mission and some exclusive gear.
