Obsidian Entertainment have officially revealed minimum and recommended PC system requirements for their upcoming RPG The Outer Worlds. Judging by the specs, The Outer Worlds is a well-optimised title.

The Outer Worlds release date is just around the corner and today, the developer Obsidian Entertainment has officially revealed what kind of PC you'll need to run their title. Judging by the specs, Obisidian Entertainment did a good job with the optimisation as The Outer Worlds requires mid-range graphics cards even for the high settings.

Those with low-end machines will also be happy to hear that The Outer Worlds will run on several years old hardware and it requires only dual-core CPU and 4 GB of RAM. Here are the full, minimum and recommended PC specifications for The Outer Worlds:


  • OS: Windows 7 (SP1) 64bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 or AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
  • RAM: 4GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 650 Ti or AMD HD 7850
  • HDD Space: 40GB


  • OS: Windows 10 64bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K or Ryzen 5 1600
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or Radeon RX 470
  • HDD Space: 40GB

As you can see, Nvidia's last-gen graphics cards and AMD's first-gen Ryzen CPU will be more than enough to enjoy The Outer Worlds in its full glory. Unfortunately, Obsidian Entertainment did not reveal more details such as the target resolution, frame rate and graphics settings but we assume that the recommended specs will allow you to push the game on High settings, 1080p resolution and 60 FPS.

All in all, some pretty good news for PC gamers who shouldn't have any issues running the game. Earlier this week, Obsidian also confirmed that The Outer Worlds will run in 4K on Xbox One X while PS4 Pro won't be enhanced.

The Outer Worlds is officially hitting the shelves on 24 October 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
