X4: Foundations PC system requirements – Requires Vulkan API support

Egosoft has announced that X4: Foundation will release on Steam on November 30th, releasing for Windows 64-bit operating systems. At this time it is unknown whether or not this game will support Linux or MacOS. 

Alongside this announcement, Egosoft has released X4: Foundation’s PC system requirements, confirming that the game will require Vulkan compliant graphics hardware. This distinction will make X4: foundations one of the only Vulkan exclusive titles on the platform, with Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus acting as another major example.  

X4 Foundation’s full PC system requirements are available on the game’s Steam page, requiring a minimum of 8GB of system memory and therefore a 64-bit Windows-based operating system (Windows 7 64-bit or newer). The game will occupy around 12GB of system storage and require a minimum of an Intel i5 4590 quad-core processor, or an AMD-powered equivalent. 

On the GPU-side, Egosoft recommends a GTX 780 or a GTX 970 graphics card, or it’s AMD equivalent. This suggests that the game will require 3GB of VRAM or more. Egosoft has noted that their PC system requirements are currently subject to change, so they could get lower as the game’s development progresses. 

Below is Egosoft’s latest trailer for X4: Foundations.
