Dark Souls 3 system requirements revealed

 

The system requirements for Dark Souls 3 have been revealed, requiring 8GB of RAM Minimum. Can you run it, or will Dark Souls kill your PC?

Dark Souls 3 Will release on April 12th and like the series' second release will launch on PC at the same time as the PS4 and Xbox One versions. 

 

 

The game will require 8GB of RAM to play and a 64-bit OS, which is a significant leap from previous games in the franchise. On the GPU side things are a little bit more reasonable, requiring a HD 6870 or a GTX 465 as it's minimum, "you died" specs and a GTX 750 or an HD 7850 in the games recommended "You Died, But That's a Pretty Nice PC You've Got There" spec.

The game will require a quad core/thread CPU, which is something that is common for a modern title. Right now we do not know if a overclockerd Dual core will be enough to play or even run this game. 

 

The "You Died" spec:

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1 64bit, Windows 8.1 64bit Windows 10 64bit
  • Processor: AMD A8 3870 3,6 Ghz or Intel Core  i3 2100 3.1Ghz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 / ATI Radeon TM HD 6870
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 50 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 11 sound device

 

The "You Died, But That's a Pretty Nice PC You've Got There" spec:

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1 64bit, Windows 8.1 64bit Windows 10 64bit
  • Processor: AMD FX 8150 3.6 GHz or Intel Core i7 2600 3.4 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750, ATI Radeon HD 7850
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 50 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 11 sound device

 

The game looks like it has also received a nice upgrade in graphical fidelity when compared to previous Dark Souls games, which is something that the series sorely needed since it is now on current generation consoles exclusively. 

Dark Souls has always been a hard and punishing game, going by the "if at first you don't succeed, DIE, DIE and DIE again" motto, so this game is certainly not for the faint of heart.

Cmon FROM


At least GPU and CPU requirements are pretty standard... I hope DS3 isn't going to be downgraded on PC.

Luckily enough, I'm getting a new PC soon so I'll move from 6 to 16GB lolQuote

For those who didn't know, Dark Souls 3 uses the Bloodborne engine so it'll definitely look gorgeous on PC. However FromSoftware has not officially stated that the game will run at 60fps on PC. Sounds ridiculous I know, but Dark Souls 1 on PC was also locked at 30fps until Durante released DSFix

hopefully they'll announce that the fps will actually be 60fps (or higher...wouldn't that be nice?)Quote

I hope those are high res textures. And I want 60fps.Quote
