Doom Eternal’s launches on March 20th 2020, and we’ve finally learned just how much juice your PC will need to play game. The following requirements were posted on Doom Eternal’s Steam page, and you should probably take note.
Doom Eternal PC Requirements
|Minimum System Requirements||Recommended System Requirements 1440p, 60FPS|
|Operating System||Windows 7\10 64 Bit||Windows 10 64 Bit|
|CPU||Intel Core i5 3.3 GHz \ AMD Ryzen 3.1 GHz||Intel Core i7-6700K \ AMD Ryzen 7 1800X|
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX970 \ AMD Radeon R9 4GB||Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080\ AMD Radeon RX Vega56 8GB|
|HDD Storage||50GB Minimum||50GB Minimum|
Based on the gameplay we’ve seen, we were expecting some pretty tough specs, but even the minimum specs will put some PC gamers out of the running – if you’re running a budget system, anyway. One interesting thing of note is the amount of storage space required. For a game that’s so graphically intense and long, we actually expected the storage requirements to be a little higher. Either way, Doom Eternal is asking a lot of out PCs and, if you’re not running at least an 8GB 1080, 2060, or equivalent, you won’t be able to run in 1440P at 60 fps at high settings. Let’s be honest, that’s how the game is meant to be played.
Along with a pretty gnarly PC setup, you’ll also want to have a decent speaker array as the heavy metal choir was just detailed and, let’s be honest, that’s half the beauty of playing Doom, right?
