Marvel's Avengers Minimum & Recommended Specs, PC Unique Features Revealed
The new Avengers game has revealed what sort of power you'll need to run it, and what a high-end PC can do.
Marvel's Avengers is releasing on September 4, but you can get early access right now. If you're looking to play on PC, you'll need the appropriate level of hardware, and just ahead of the game's release, Crystal Dynamics released the minimum and recommended specs for Avengers, as well as the exclusive features you can potentially enjoy in the PC version.
No matter what, you'll need at least 8GB of RAM and a fair chunk of HDD space, ranging from 75GB up to 110GB. The range of supported CPUs and GPUs is fairly great--check out Avengers' minimum and recommended specs below.
Marvel's Avengers Minimum Specs
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: i3-4160 or AMD equivalent
- 8GB RAM
- NVIDIA GTX 950 / AMD 270 (min 2GB video ram)
- DirectX 12
- 75GB HDD space
Marvel's Avengers Recommended Specs
- Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K, 3.4 Ghz or AMD Ryzen 51600, 3.2 Ghz
- 16GB RAM
- NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 480, 8GB.
- DirectX 12
- 110GB SSD space
The PC version will also give you the option of downloading a 30GB high-resolution texture pack, if you don't mind sacrificing some HDD space for enhanced visuals. You'll likely want a 4K monitor to get the most out of this. Ultra-wide resolutions are also supported for the PC version, as well as multi-monitor set-ups. If you opt for speed over visuals, the fast paced motion could also benefit from a 240hz monitor.
The PC version also sports an unlocked framerate, and full customization options across keyboards and controllers. You'll be able to check out some of these features yourself in the upcoming closed beta across August 14-16 if you've preordered; there's also an open beta on Steam across the August 21-23 weekend. If you jump in, look out for the hidden mission that stands as the beta's highlight.
It remains to be seen when the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions release, and whether they'll include some of these higher-res textures.
