Elden Ring PC System Requirements: Minimum And Recommended Specs

Your PC must be this tarnished to run Elden Ring.


If you're planning to venture into the realm of the Lands Between in Elden Ring on PC, your sword and shield aren't the only equipment you'll have to check. The game is available now, and publisher Bandai Namco has released the official minimum and recommended PC specs for the game, so you can see if your rig is tarnished enough to handle the open-world sandbox developed by From Software. Or not tarnished at all, as it were. Anyway, just know you'll also need some skill and some wit to make it through the Lands Between alive, and you can check out our guides hub for more Elden Ring help.
