  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 / AMD Radeon R9 280X
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 150 GB available space

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.
- Since integrated graphics share system memory, having more than 8GB would help when using M1 systems.
 

RECOMMENDED:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: macOS 10.15.7
  • Processor: 2.3GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8GB
  • Storage: 150 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Recommended specs can run the game on high or ultra settings. You'll meet recommended specs if you have a MacBook Pro 15 inch or 16 inch from 2019 and up. An iMac from 2017 or newer will also pull it off. M1 Chip requirements: MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini with Apple M1 chip and 16GB of RAM
