Elden Ring: These are your minimum computer requirements

Elden Ring, from the creators of Dark Souls, should debut later this year on PC and video game consoles. Before launching, the developers reveal to us the requirements of the game so that you can enjoy it on your computer.

Elden Ring is a new part of the developer From Software, the creator of the Dark Souls saga, and recently Sekiro. The game will be innovative within the ‘Souls’ formula titled ‘Open World’, where the scenarios will be larger and with different routes to choose from to tackle our adventure.

These more open scenarios will require more hardware than previous studio games, something listed in the minimum requirements.

The first thing we have to say is that Elden Ring will support DirectX 12. This is a change compared to Ax, which only used DirectX 11.

  • Operating system: Windows 10 or Windows 11
  • Processor: Intel i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (4GB)
  • DirectX: version 12
  • Storage: 60 GB of available space

The differences from the Ax are obvious, instead of the modest GTX 970, it now requires the GTX 1060 to play at 1080p. Although this is not clear, we would like to believe that these playback requirements are at 60 frames per second.

CPU requirements seem to be easily achievable. The i5-8400 is a 6-core, 6-threaded chip, while the Ryzen 3 3300X is a 4-core, 8-threaded processor.

The recommended requirements have not been revealed, but many gamers will be pleased to learn that the game will have support for Nvidia DLSS, AMD FSR and/or Intel Ness Technologies, which will help achieve more performance at the cost of certain image sharpness.

The demands aren’t excessive, though they’re a little more than expected for a game done and for eight-year-old hardware.

If you don’t know all the specifications of your hardware, all you need to do is run the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, which quickly provides you with a detailed list of your PC’s specs. Here’s how to use it:

Click the Windows button on your taskbar.
  • Type dxdiag.
  • Click dxdiag in the search results.
  • Windows will then show your PC specifications.
