As with most PC system requirements guides, we’ll detail what minimum and recommended specifications you’ll need in order to handle Minecraft Dungeons. Let’s waste no more time finding out the information for each, and help you decide if your PC can run it.
Minecraft Dungeons minimum system requirements
Let’s see what the minimum specs are that you’ll need to run Minecraft Dungeons first. These are the bare minimum requirements to handle it, but most PCs will have specs that exceed this. You should be fine either way, but you can double-check by reading on.

Minecraft Dungeons recommended system requirements
Curiously, there aren’t any official recommended system requirements listed by Mojang or Microsoft. The game’s specifications page only lists what minimum specs you’ll require
According to that same page, however, Minecraft Dungeons‘ performance will scale with higher end systems. That means that, regardless of what specs you have, as long as they’re above the minimum requirements you’ll be able to run it without any problems.
The only thing you must ensure is that you have the latest update for Windows, your graphics card, DirectX, and Microsoft Visual C++ Resdistributable for Visual Studio. If you’re golden on these, you can launch Minecraft Dungeons with ease.
