Is your PC ready for Hogwarts Legacy? PC System Requirements Released

Can you run it? Here are Hogwarts Legacy’s PC system requirements

Hogwarts legacy is due to release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S on February 10th, and Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software have now released the game’s PC system requirements to let gamers know if their PCs are ready for gaming’s latest wizarding adventure.

The good news is that Hogwarts Legacy’s minimum system requirements are on the low side, asking gamers for a quad-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and graphics cards that include AMD’s Radeon RX 470 and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960 4GB. These are not high system requirements, though it is worth noting that these hardware specs are only targeting 720p 30 FPS gameplay.

If you want 1080p 60 FPS gameplay, you will need to look at Hogwarts Legacy’s recommended system requirements, which list newer 6-core CPUs, and graphics cards like Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti and AMD’s RX 5700 XT. This hardware targets 1080p 60 FPS gameplay at high settings. SSD storage is recommended to play Hogwarts Legacy, and higher-end GPU hardware will be required for 1440p or 4K gameplay at 60 FPS.

Currently, it is unknown if Hogwarts Legacy will support AMD’s FSR 2.0 technology or Nvidia’s DLSS AI upscaler. Support for these features would be welcome, especially for gamers who want to target higher framerates, resolutions, or settings than their hardware would otherwise support.
