  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 / AMD Radeon R9 280X
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 150 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Default API is Vulkan 1.1. Directx11 API also provided. The minimum requirements might decrease over the course of Early Access, as performance improves

RECOMMENDED:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel i7 4770k / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB / AMD RX580
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 150 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Default API is Vulkan 1.1. Directx11 API also provided. The recommended requirements might decrease over the course of Early Access, as performance improves

macOS Requirements

MINIMUM:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: macOS 10.15.6
  • Processor: 2.6GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon460 4GB
  • Storage: 150 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Minimum specs can run the game on low to medium settings. To meet minimum specs, you'll need a MacBook Pro 15 inch from 2016 or newer. Or, a MacBook Pro 13 inch from 2018 or newer. M1 Chip requirements: MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini with Apple M1 chip and 8GB of RAM.

Note: minimum means you'll be able to play but you'll have to make quality concessions. If your framerate is low, go to video options and try a lower graphics preset.

Additional notes on the minimum requirements:
- The game requires a CPU with AVX2 support (basically, 2014 or later).
- Nvidia graphics are not supported.
- The minimum AMD graphics card requires 4GB of VRAM; cards with 2GB would require swapping assets in and out of memory, likely causing performance problems, and are not recommended.
- For integrated graphics, Intel Iris Plus Graphics are supported from 2017 for the numbered models and from 2019 for the unnumbered model. Iris Pro, Iris and older integrated graphics are not supported.
- Since integrated graphics share system memory, having more than 8GB would help when using Iris Plus graphics and M1 systems.
 

RECOMMENDED:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
