Square Enix has just confirmed Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PC this very month. January 28th, in fact, so there's only just over three weeks to go until we can spend sleepless nights in the Siberian wilderness, with nothing but mercenaries and killer bears for comfort. By all accounts the Xbox One version that came out in November was magnificent, and also a bit of a looker.
Great visuals usually come at a great price though. You only have to glance at a few Rise of the Tomb Raider screens to see jaw-dropping environments, spectacular lighting effects and grand vistas. So before you plonk down that cash on a pre-order, make sure you check out the Rise of the Tomb Raider minimum system requirements so you know your rig isn't a worthless old artifact.

Anyone hoping for a similar set of system requirements to the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot had best think again. These minimum system requirements for RotTR, which is all we've got to go on right now, is basically on par with, and in some cases more demanding than the recommended specs for Tomb Raider 2013.
