    How to get tech support + PC system requirements (read before posting here!)

    Hey folks,

    Here is a reminder for everyone that the Hitman forum is not an official tech support channel. This sub forum is primarily for user-to-user interaction where players help each other out.

    For official tech support, go here:

    Europe: http://support.eu.square-enix.com
    North America: http://support.na.square-enix.com
    Japan: http://support.jp.square-enix.com

    If you are somewhere else in the world, use any of the above options which are closest to you

    ------------------------------------------

    Please note that while this forum is not an official support channel, developers and customer support representatives do keep their eye on this forum to get to know what issues players have with the game. So we ask everyone to keep things on topic and constructive. For general discussions on Hitman: Absolution that are not technical issues or bug reports, please use our main Hitman forum section: http://forums.eidosgames.com/forumdisplay.php?f=295

    Furthermore, if you have a tech issue or bug report for a specific platform, please add [PC] or [PS3] or [XBOX] into your thread title.

    ------------------------------------------

    Official PC system requirements:

    Minimum:
    Operating System:Windows Vista SP2
    CPU: 2GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo or better, AMD Athlon X2 or better)
    RAM: 2GB RAM
    Graphics: nVIDIA GeForce 8600 512MB / AMD HD2600 XT
    DVD-ROM Yes
    Hard Drive: 24 GB free disk space
    Input Devices: Xbox 360 controller, mouse and keyboard

    Recommended for INTEL CPU:
    CPU: Intel Core i7 (first generation will be OK)
    Memory: 4096 MB will be fine with the assumption that this was sufficient on the AMD (tested with 8192 MB though)
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB) or ATI Radeon HD 5770 (preferably 1024 MB)
    Sound: DirectX sound capable card (any current model covers this)
    OS: Preferably Windows 7 (64-bit for anything higher than 3 GB of system memory)

    Recommended for AMD CPU:
    CPU: AMD Athlon II X4
    Memory: 4096 MB will be fine (8192 MB would be better)
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB) or ATI Radeon HD 5770 (preferably 1024 MB)
    Sound: DirectX sound capable card (any current model covers this)
    OS: Preferably Windows 7 (64-bit for anything higher than 3 GB of system memory)

    For those that are unsure if you can run the PC version, there is a wonderful site called Can you run it. Just use the search funtion and select Hitman Absolution and it will check your system for you.

    PS it is also good for other games as well

    Nice to know the min-specs.
    Also, why so much HDD? Is this because of the high textures files?

    Comparing with mine:
    Operating System:Windows Vista SP2 32 Bit Windows 7 SP1 (Check)
    CPU: 2GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo or better, AMD Athlon X2 or better) 2.7GHz Dual Core (Check)
    RAM: 2GB RAM 2GB (Check)
    Graphics: nVIDIA GeForce 8600 512MB / AMD HD2600 XT
    DVD-ROM Radeon HD5670 1GB DDR3 (Check)
    Hard Drive: 24 GB free disk space (Check)
    Input Devices: Xbox 360 controller, mouse and keyboard (Check)

    Yay. This give my PC a GO for Hitman: Absolution. Hopefully the optimization will be very good too, unlike the sniper challenge.

    sry for Disturbance you

    Recommended is obviously a DX11 card at minimum since this game has DX11 features for PC. CPU most likely quad core of either variety and 4 gbs minimum ram.

    RAM should be 8GB considering the awesome graphics we have seen in the recent trailers.

    Do you think guys that I'll be able to run Absolution smoothly with this gaming rig ?

    W7 64 bits
    Q9550 2,83 GHZ
    4GB Ram DDR2 667 MHZ
    GTX 560 DirectCu 1gb DDR5...

    Let's hope it's even more optimised than Sniper Challenge... ;D

    Uhh, I think the GeForce 8600 512MB should be a GeForce 8800 GTS since GeForce 8600 are only available in 256MB variations.

    And I don't think Hitman will run on 256MB of video RAM, no? Well maybe <10 FPS, yes.

    GPU seems quite low comparing with other recent titles!

    This seems rather specific, why the X-Box 360 controller on a PC?

    Personally on my PC I have a Saitek Game Pad where as other people I know have PS3 game pads on the PC. Surely any HID compliant dual-axis 14/16 button game pad should be sufficient?

    Or for the PC gamer purists - just a keyboard and mouse

    Can someone please help. I bought Hitman: Absolution on Steam and my computer can definitely run the game (I checked on the recommended 'Can you run it?') but whenever I open the game I click on new game (has never worked) and then during the opening cinematic it freezes and crashes. Anyone know what is the problem or has had a similar issue? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. [PC]
