Publisher Bethesda has announced the system requirements for its reboot of id Software's seminal shooter Doom, along with its official launch trailer.

Designed to take the franchise back to its roots without returning to the 2.5D raycasting engine of old, the Doom reboot's beta has been gathering mixed reviews from users. Developer id Software, now a Bethesda subsidiary, has previously stated that many technical concerns - such as a lack of support for multiple monitors and a capped frame rate - will be addressed in the retail release, and now the company has gone public with just what kind of a system you'll need to play said release at its fullest potential.

The minimum system requirements for Doom's retail version request an Intel Core i5 or AMD FX-8320 processor or better, Nvidia GeForcve GTX 670 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 or better, 8GB of RAM, Windows 7 or higher, and a whopping 55GB of hard drive space. Those wishing to get the most out of the game are recommended to play on an Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8450 or better, Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 or better, a 64-bit version of Windows, and have the same 8GB of RAM and 55GB of hard drive space available.

The company has also confirmed that console gamers will need to have 50GB of space available on their hard drives to install the title, which is available for pre-load on Microsoft's Xbox One now ahead of a cross-platform release on Windows, Xbox One, and PlaySTation 4 on the 13th of May. The launch trailer, meanwhile, is reproduced below.
