Warhammer 40000: Space Marine 2 PC Specs & Requirements

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is the upcoming third-person shooter hack-n-slash sequel to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, and is set to be released for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X and Series S on 9th September 2024.

Developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Entertainment, the game “promises an immersive and action-packed experience where players go head to head against the Tyranid Swarms in battles of galactic proportions.”

In the game, players can fight through the epic campaign solo or in up to 3-player co-op, “unleashing the Ultramarines’ deadly arsenal to protect Humanity from the untold horrors of the galaxy, including the dark forces of Chaos!”

As with any modern game release, knowing the system requirements necessary to run the game at optimal settings is vital for having an enjoyable gameplay experience. In this article, we’ll explore the PC specs required to run Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, as well as provide recommendations for those looking to upgrade their current setup. 

So, read on to discover what hardware you will need to immerse yourself in this fight to liberate the galaxy.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 Minimum Requirements

Currently, Saber Interactive hasn’t revealed the game’s minimum and recommended specifications, and as the first game came out so long ago, basing the sequel’s specs on it would prove useless. But, using games of a similar calibre, we can put together some speculative estimations.

  • Processor: Intel Core i3-9100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon R7 370 (2 GB VRAM)
  • Storage: Likely 20GB+ available space

Using the minimum specs from another recently released title from Saber Interactive - Expeditions: A MudRunner Game - we can estimate that a similar system will likely be listed.

So with this in mind, getting Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 up and running at 1080p resolution, with most settings on low but hitting a decent 30 FPS, you most likely won’t need an overly powerful PC.

Both the CPU and GPU options are showing their age now so most gaming PCs made within the last 8 years or so should be able to handle getting the game up and running.

Even though we don’t know the official size of the game and therefore it could be relatively small, it’ll always benefit from being installed on a fast drive. With this in mind, consider upgrading your system with an SSD for faster load times, even if it's a smaller one.

If your PC just meets these specifications, however, you will need to be content with the lowest settings. You’ll only be able to play at around 1080p at 30 FPS with pretty much all the settings on low.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Ignition Intel Core i3 GTX 1650 Gaming PC.

It houses much newer components in the form of the Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU and the Intel i3 12100. Both parts are some of the best entry-level options on the market and offer excellent value for money for those looking for a more budget system that will still allow for moderate gaming.

It also comes stocked with 16GB of RAM which nowadays is usually the baseline for a gaming PC as it allows for a much smoother experience for not much more money than if you were to use 8GB. 

Plus it features a huge 1TB SSD to store the game on giving you more than enough space for a few others.

Warhammer 40000: Space Marine 2  Recommended Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-10700 / AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 / AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT (6 GB VRAM)
  • Storage: Likely 20GB+ available space

As with the minimum specs, these are the recommended specs for Expeditions: A MudRunner Game but they should serve as a good baseline to work from.

Systems that fall within these recommended specifications should provide a solid gameplay experience at 1080p, raising framerates from those achieved using the minimum specs to 60FPS whilst also upgrading visual integrity and allowing graphics to be set to high.

These recommended specs are a decent jump from the minimum requirements though, with the suggested components being from much more recent generations. With that, the upgrade in GPU brings new features such as DLSS technology and the option for ray tracing via the Nvidia RTX graphics card.

However, they are still a couple of generations old now and can be hard to get your hands on, so will likely not be the best option for value for money and you should instead look to newer parts.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 3060 Gaming PC.

Similar to our PC suggestion for the minimum specs, this PC features some more recent parts, upgrading the CPU to an Intel Core i5 14400F and the GPU to an Nvidia RTX 3060. The combination of these newer parts means more future-proofing alongside a top-tier 1080p (and possibly even 1440p) experience.

Alongside no current official specs, Saber Interactive also hasn’t revealed whether or not the game will support either Nvidia DLSS or AMD FSR technology. However, as a lot of modern games are implementing it, whether upon launch or retroactively through a later update, it is likely that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 will too.

What do you need to play Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 at higher resolutions?

To enjoy a game like Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 at 1440p and 4K, all while having graphical settings on high, these are the specs we think your system will need to hit at the very minimum.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7900x or Intel i9 12900
  • GPU: AMD RX 6800 XT or Nvidia RTX 3080
  • Storage Space: Likely 20GB+ available space
  • RAM: 16 GB

Like the other requirement lists, some of these components are also not of the most current generation. So, to hit these specs without spending money on out-of-date parts, consider a system like the Chilblast Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 4070 Gaming PC.

This Chillblast PC features the Intel Core i5 14500 processor, which offers excellent gaming performance and multitasking capabilities. Paired with the Nvidia RTX 4070, you can expect smooth gameplay at 4K at high settings in most games.

Additionally, having 16GB of RAM and a powerful multitasking CPU, you should face no limits on running multiple applications whilst gaming. Plus, with full support for DLSS, it can drive up frame rates in supported games even more, and it even has some impressive ray-tracing support in compatible games

It even comes with a 1TB SSD which is ample room for your game library, plus a solid 16GB of high-speed memory.

Even though we don’t yet know the official PC requirements for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, using previous titles from the same developer suggests there will likely be options for all budgets. 

As always, while meeting the minimum requirements will allow you to play the game smoothly, upgrading to a more powerful Chillblast PC will enhance your gaming experience, especially if you aim to play at higher resolutions and settings.
