Illusion Softworks broke new ground back in 2002, creating the unique and critically acclaimed Mafia, which combined a mature, multi-layered story with realistic driving and gunplay, and incredible open-world graphics. In 2010 Mafia II was released, and now six years later, Mafia III will be released on October 7th, once again delivering an engaging, mature story in a gorgeously-rendered open world.

Today, 2K Games and developer Hangar 13 are revealing their recommended system requirements for the long-awaited threequel, which puts players in control of Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War veteran seeking revenge for friends murdered by the mob, in 1960s New Orleans.

Minimum System Requirements  

  • CPU: i5-2500K
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660
  • VRAM: 2GB
  • RAM: 6GB
  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • HDD: 50GB free space

Recommended System Requirements  

With the recommended spec you should expect a high level of graphical detail at 1920x1080, but if you want to max things out you'll want to gear up with more powerful components, such as the GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080.

If you've got capable hardware you'll be able to crank up detail levels for Ambient Occlusion, Anti-Aliasing, Depth of Field, Geometry Detail, Reflection Quality, Shadow Quality, and Volumetric Effects. And being a PC gamer you'll also have control over Field of View, Motion Blur usage, Screen Modes, Resolutions, and other settings that'll help tailor the experience to your liking.

Whatever system configuration you have, you'll be able to automatically configure Mafia III's graphics settings for the best balance between image quality and performance with a just a single click thanks to GeForce Experience. A one-stop shop for game configuration, gameplay recording, gameplay streaming, driver updating, and much more, GeForce Experience is an indispensable application for GeForce GTX gamers.
