If, like us, you have been eyeballing Outriders as your next slice of looter-shooter action, you may have been wondering about the minimum and recommended specs for the game on PC.

Developers People Can Fly have announced those same specs, at least partially. The Ultra specs for those who want to run the game at 4K are still to be decided, which hints at some higher end optimization that is still being done at the game. Specs are, generally speaking, always subject to change before launch, so we will be keeping this list up to date with any future information that is revealed.

Minimum (720p, 60 FPS)

  • OS – Windows 10
  • CPU – Intel i5-3470, AMD FX-8350
  • Memory – 8 GB
  • GPU – Geforce GTX 750 Ti, AMD Radeon R9 270x
  • Direct X 11
  • 70 GB Storage

Minimum (1080p, 60 FPS)

  • OS – Windows 10
  • CPU – Intel i7-7700, AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • Memory – 16 GB
  • GPU – Geforce GTX 1060 6GB, AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
  • Direct X 12
  • 70 GB Storage

Ultra (2160p, 60 FPS)

  • OS – Windows 10
  • CPU – TBD
  • Memory – 16 GB
  • GPU – TBD
  • Direct X 12
  • 70 GB Storage

The minimum and recommended specs both come in on the lower end, to be honest. Both and CPU and GPU requirements should be well within reach for the vast majority of gamers, if the Steam Survery Results are anything to go by. The GTX 1060 is the most commonly owned GPU on steam, so it’s hardly surprising that the majority of games will run just fine on Nvidia’s workhorse graphics card.

If you are specifically thinking about upgrading your computer for Outriders, remember that your monitor should always dictate your upgrades. There is a big different between what you need to play a game at 4K, or 144FPS, than the card you need to max a game out at 1080p and 60 FPS.
