Death Stranding Will be Surprisingly Easy to Run on PC
The specs for Death Stranding on Pc have finally arrived, and they're not all that demanding
Death Stranding, the Norman Reedus road-trip simulator from Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and his studio, Kojima Productions, is set to launch on PC July 14. And like most PC releases, prior to launch, we’re getting a good look at what you’re going to need under the hood of your desktop or laptop to run the game. Shockingly, it doesn’t seem like you’ll need an absolute monster of a rig to get this game running well.
The first spec list for Death Stranding plots out what you’ll need to run the game at an extremely modest 720p/30fps. You’ll need the following: Windows 10, Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200, 8GB of memory, GeForce GTX 10503GB or AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB, Version 12 of Direct X, 80GB of storage space, and a Direct X compatible sound card.
For a better-looking experience at 1080p/30fps, the spec list is a little more demanding. The required specs for this configuration are as follows: Windows 10, Intel Core i54460 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400, 8GB of memory, Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB or Radeon RX 570 4GB, Version 12 of Direct X, 80GB of storage space, and a Direct X compatible sound card.
Finally, if you’re looking for an experience distinct from the game’s console release at 1080p/60fps, you’ll need a solid mid-range build. To get the game running at these specs, you’ll need the following: Windows 10, Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600, 8GB of memory, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 590, Version 12 of Direct X, 80GB of storage and a Direct X compatible sound card.
Like I said before, the specs across these three configurations aren’t all that demanding, especially considering that the last Steam hardware survey found that the GTX 1060 is the most common graphics card players are using on the platform. Naturally though, if you’re looking to play Death Stranding at 4k, on an ultra-wide monitor or at higher framerates, the specs will be more demanding.
Death Stranding is launching on PC July 14 on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
