With the PC release of Death Stranding inching ever closer, Kojima Productions recently revealed the system requirements of the game, and they’re not bad at all! In fact, players will need only a GTX 1050 or an RX 560 GPU to run the game at 30FPS with a 720p resolution.

Here’s the full minimum system requirements for Death Stranding:

Minimum 30FPS (720p)

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 3GB or Radeon RX 560 4GB
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD Space: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible

What about the recommended settings? Kojima Productions states that players will only need a GTX 1060 6GB /Radeon RX 590 GPU as well as a Core i7-3770/Ryzen 5 1600 CPU to run the game at 60FPS with a 1080p resolution. If you’re target is only 30FPS, you can get away with even just a GTX 1050 Ti.

Here are the full recommended system requirements for the game:

Recommended 30FPS (1080p)

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB or Radeon RX 570 4GB
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD Space: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible

Recommended 60FPS (1080p)

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 590
  • DirectX 12
  • HDD Space: 80GB
  • Sound cards: DirectX compatible

Even with the fairly light system requirements (for a triple-A title at least), Death Stranding still requires 80GB of space on your drive. This is nearly double the size of the PS4 version of the game. And if you do plan on playing the game in 4K or with an ultrawide aspect ratio, a GTX 1060 likely won’t cut it. For higher resolutions, more powerful cards such as a GTX 1080 or an RTX series card is what you’ll need.

Death Stranding will release on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on July 14, 2020.
