On special days of the month we like to present you with the minimum system requirements for PC versions of mid-range games you may or may not care about. We call them “slow news days,” and on this, the second Monday in January, I come to you with just the thing: The minimum system requirements for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Drop your linen and stop your grinnin’, because we’re on an express elevator to the relevant information!

Minimum Spec:

  • CPU: 2 GHz Intel Dual Core Processor
  • RAM: 2 GB
