Elden Ring’s PC system requirements include Quad-Core Ryzen 3 3300X, NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB, 12GB RAM and 60GB storage

Elden Ring, the spiritual successor to the Dark Souls trilogy is set to land on PC and next-gen consoles later this year. FromSoftware has been providing updates on the project for the past six months, and everything seems to be going according to plan. Elden Ring is expected to be a lot closer to Sekiro than Dark Souls, with the developers promising more forgiving combat that’s likely to appeal to a wider audience.

Moving on to technical details, FromSoftware also announced the game’s minimum system specs for PC gamers. In line with previous titles from the Japanese studio, Elden Ring will also be easy on your computer. Minimum system requirements include a Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU, and GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU. Memory requirements are a little higher at 12GB, and storage goes up to 60GB, a bit more than Dark Souls 3.

Minimum requirements:

  • SE: Windows 10 or 11 64 bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphic: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • DirectX: Version 12 (DirectX 12)
  • Storage: 60 GB of available space

Interestingly, the game will ditch DirectX11 in favor of DirectX 12, which is a welcome change. This should improve CPU utilization as well as GPU performance on older AMD hardware. In case you’re wondering about ray tracing or DLSS, I highly doubt either is supported. Also keep in mind that the minimum system requirements are for the lowest graphics settings at 720p, targeting 30 FPS gameplay.
