Just yesterday we had the opportunity to meet the first intergenerational games that will be improved on Xbox Series X, and Second Extinction was one of them. This title leads us to a dystopian future in which humanity has been practically extinct due to an apocalyptic event that has had two aspects: climate change and the arrival of some very dangerous dinosaurs.

Second Extinction will be focused on action and cooperative multiplayer, and it seems that its operation will revolve around the concept of video game as a service, which means that we will see events and content expansions over time, a quite successful approach and that will be essential to keep it fresh and alive.

The launch of Second Extinction will occur on Xbox One, PC and Xbox Series X, which means that we are facing one of the first intergenerational games that has confirmed its requirements in compatible, and as we can see everything fits with what we have told you on previous occasions, the quad-core and eight-thread processors will continue to be viable, and the same happens with the GTX 1070 and Radeon RX Vega 56.

Second Extinction minimum requirements

64-bit Windows 10 as the operating system.
Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X processor.
12 GB of RAM.
3GB GTX 780 or 3GB AMD R9 280.
30 GB of free space.

These requirements should be enough to move the game in 1080p and medium quality. The CPU-level equivalencies are not quite right, as the closest equivalent to the Core i5 3570 would be a FX 8370.

By cons, the GPU equivalencies are not good, since the 3GB GTX 780 is more powerful than the R9 280. The correct and closest equivalence of the latter would be a GTX 670.

Recommended Second Extinction requirements

64-bit Windows 10 as the operating system.
Intel Core i7-4770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X processor.
16 GB of RAM.
GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Vega 56 8GB.
50 GB of free space.

With this configuration the game should run smoothly at 1440p and maximum qualities, although we have two errors in terms of equivalences. The Ryzen 5 1600X has six cores and twelve threads, while the Core i7 4770K has four cores and eight threads. The correct equivalence of the latter would be a Ryzen 5 1500X.

In the case of graphics cards the equivalence is not all bad, but the Radeon RX Vega 56 is a bit more powerful than the GTX 1070.
