Elden Ring: “The Come And Gone” Minimum System Requirements

FromSoftware’s Elden Ring game showcased its minimum system requirements on Steam for a short while, but then, publisher Bandai Namco removed it from Gabe Newell’s storefront…


Quite hefty minimum system requirements, if what was posted is real:

  • Minimum system requirements:
  • Operating system: Windows 10 or Windows 11 (x64, no version number mentioned)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X, or better
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (with 3 GB of VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (with 4 GB of VRAM), or better
  • DirectX: DX12
  • Free storage: 60 GB


That’s pretty high for minimum system requirements. fromsoftware’s previous game, 2019’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has had lower recommended system requirements, which means there has been a significant jump in the entry barrier.


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s recommended system requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 7, 8 (not 8.1?) or 10 x64
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen 5 1400, or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 570, or better
  • DirectX: DX11
  • Free storage: 25 GB
  • Broadband Internet connection required
  • DX11 compatible sound card


So the entry level has increased in every way, and you need more power, especially considering the processor and the graphics card. The 12 gigabyte minimum for RAM is also significant. We have to assume that the minimum is unlikely to include ray tracing, so the recommended system requirements could be much higher than that (RTX 2070 for the GPU, if we had to guess). We mention this technology because FromSoftware has already confirmed that Elden Ring will implement it via a patch n PC…

Elden Ring on PC might also use one of the upscaling technologies (Nvidia: DLSS, AMD: FSR, Intel: XeSS). The game will launch on February 25 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If the proper (and recommended!) system requirements turn up, we’ll come back to this because there’s nothing listed on Steam at the moment…
