It is almost time for FromSoftware to launch its latest highly anticipated project, Elden Ring. PC players looking forward to the adventure can now measure up their rigs against the system requirements straight from the developer. The official announcement comes shortly after an accidental publication of the information on the Steam pre-order page.

The shared specifications are rather modest, at least on the GPU side of things, requiring graphics cards that were released six years ago for even the recommended specifications. The 12GB RAM requirement in the minimum department may be a problem for low-end builds, however.

The official PC system requirements for the launch build of Elden Ring are in the image below, followed by a text version:

Elden Ring PC system requirements


  • OS: Windows 10 / Windows 11
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 60GB
  • Sound Card: Windows Compatible Audio


  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X

As specified by the developer in a previous announcement, ray tracing is in the works for the title, though as a post-launch update. When the graphics feature arrives, it will bump up the GPU requirements quite heavily. Like all editions of the game, the PC version won't be able to go above the 60FPS cap set on the game, at least officially.

An Nvidia graphics driver is already available for PC players jumping in on day one, and an AMD release should be coming soon too.

Elden Ring is releasing on February 25 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
