This article as originally published follows below.

Elden Ring's system requirements were revealed via the game's Steam page before being deleted, briefly showing players what hardware they'll need to run the game smoothly (H/T Eurogamer).

With the little information players have of the game, worry is setting in as the system requirements seem a little steep for the bare minimum that the game requires, demanding a high-performance machine in order to play the game.

Of course it is unknown currently whether the system preferences for Elden Rings are the bare minimum that players need in order to run the game, or it is the recommended system that FromSoftware is suggesting to have in order to play the game smoothly.

Leaked Elden Ring System Requirements

What has been revealed is that players will need:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
  • DirectX: 12
  • Storage: 60GB

The information above is either the minimum requirements, in which case players will have to be prepared to handle the truth if they are unable to play the game, or the recommended system requirements in order to have the best experience playing Elden Rings, in which case players can breathe a sigh of relief.
