Elden Ring PC Minimum Requirements List 12 GB of RAM

Elden Ring PC Requirements

Bandai Namco briefly released the PC system requirements for Elden Ring on Steam, before taking them down shortly afterward. The minimum requirements listed 12 GB of RAM, in addition to some comparatively demanding CPU and GPU specs. The game’s Steam page now lists the requirements as “TBD.” [Thanks, PC Gamer!]

Below are the listed Elden Ring minimum PC system requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 or Windows 11
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12 GB of RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 60GB

The system requirements for Elden Ring look to be significantly more demanding than previous From Software titles. In comparison, 2019’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice only required 4GB RAM and Intel Core i3-2100 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 to run.

That being said, Bandai Namco decided to pull the Elden Ring PC requirements from the Steam page. This could indicate that they aren’t set in stone just yet. Given the lack of recommended system requirements, there is also the possibility that Bandai Namco mistakenly posted the recommended specs as minimum specs instead.

Elden Ring will release for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on February 25, 2022. In the meantime, you can check out our preview of the game.
