Fallout 76 PC Requirements Finally Revealed by Bethesda

With less than a month to go until its launch, Bethesda Game Studios has revealed the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Fallout 76.

We are under a month away from the release of Fallout 76 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. While people have already been able to try the game out for themselves via the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A., PC players were still in the dark about what exactly the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Fallout 76 actually were until today.

Bethesda Game Studios recently updated the FAQ page for the B.E.T.A., adding the game’s aforementioned minimum and recommended PC requirements to their answers. The minimum requirements, which you can see below, should be fairly manageable for most modern PCs, though some smaller SSDs may struggle with the 60GB storage requirement:

Fallout 76 (minimum):
Requires 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz or equivalent
Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 285 2GB or equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Storage: 60 GB of free disk space

Meanwhile, the recommended PC specs are a bit heavier, but shouldn’t be a problem at all for those with dedicated gaming PCs:

Fallout 76 (Recommended):
Requires 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 970 4GB / AMD R9 290X 4GB
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Storage: 60 GB of free disk space

Fallout 76 will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 14, though Bethesda Game Studios does recognize the need for ongoing post-launch support. If you want to pre-order the game yourself, you can do so on Amazon while also supporting the site.
