Star Wars: Squadrons system requirements – Minimum and recommended specs

Can you run it?

Star Wars: Squadrons

EA’s announcement of Star Wars: Squadrons has come with a set of minimum and recommended specs for PC players. Because the game supports VR, EA has included a recommended specs list for playing in VR, and playing in a more traditional manner. 

Everything listed below should be easily achievable for most people, and even in VR mode, the game seems to be surprisingly light to run. I have a hard time imagining that many people out there have coughed up the cash for a VR headset are running less than a GTX 1070 and an i7-7700.

It does make me wonder how much of a disparity there will be in how the game looks between the recommended settings and maxing everything out, however.

You can find the full minimum and recommended specs below, so you can decide for yourself if you will be able to fight back against the Empire, or crush the Rebels.
