From Software have revealed the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for their upcoming action RPG title Elden Ring.

UPDATE (February 15): From Software have now shared the official minimum and recommended PC system requirements for Elden Ring. 

The first Steam listing was actually correct, Elden Ring does require at least 12 GB of RAM and Nvidia GTX 1060. Check out the full specs below: 

UPDATE (February 12): The minimum specs have been removed from the Steam page. This could suggest that the listing was a simple human error which would not be surprising since the listed hardware was quite high. Until we get more details, take the specs below with a grain of salt. 

Original Story: The official PC specs for Elden Ring have appeared on the game's official Steam page. The specs are odd though, there is no listing for the recommended specs, only minimum, which seem a bit high for a From Software game. 

To run Elden Ring, you'll need at least a GTX 1060 or RX 580 graphics card. That's higher than the recommended GPU for Sekiro Shadows Die Twice - GTX 970 or AMD RX 570.

The required memory is also very high when compared to system specs of previous From Software games. Though, it must be said that Elden Ring is a fully open-world game with higher graphical fidelity when compared to previous titles, which did not have large open areas. 

Here are the minimum PC system requirements for Elden Ring: 

  • OS: Win10, Win11
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 3 GB or AMD Radeon RX 580, 4 GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 60 GB available space

As we already mentioned, From Software have not shared the recommended specs just yet, which is a bit odd. Hopefully, over the next few days, we will be getting a full sheet with both minimum and recommended system requirements.

Elden Ring is officially out on February 25, 2022, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5.
