Elden Ring PC Specifications Finally Revealed
With Elden Ring on the cusp of being released, FromSoftware has officially revealed the game’s PC spec requirements for both minimum and recommended builds. Alas, the Elden Ring PC specs needed for the bare minimum are a little on the hefty side, confirming the previously revealed list of specs that were almost immediately taken down by the developer earlier this month.
FromSoftware took to social media to unveil the Elden Ring PC specifications for both minimum and recommended system builds. The required storage space is 60gb, which is reasonable, but it’s more or less all uphill from there. The minimum recommended memory sits at a whopping 12GB of RAM, which is rather outrageous compared to other recently released triple-A PC titles. Check out the full list below:

There’s at least one possibility as to why the specs are so high for even the minimum Elden Ring PC build. Elden Ring creator Hidetaka Miyazaki confirmed in an interview earlier this year that Bluepoint’s Demon’s Souls remake lit a fire under the Elden Ring development team, with the game’s graphics-creation staff feeling the pressure “more than anyone else.” Miyazaki goes on to reiterate that graphical fidelity “takes less priority compared to the other elements of development,” though it’s difficult to otherwise explain away why the PC specs for Elden Ring are just so dang high. If that really is the case then players with older rigs may still be able to play the game, albeit at significantly lowered settings.
Elden Ring is slated to release on February 25 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
