With the opening of the pre-orders of No Man’s Sky on Steam and, Hello Games shared the PC requirements for the game.

  • OS: Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel Core i3
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: nVidia GTX 480
  • Storage: 10 GB available space

While the game is definitely forgiving in the video card and CPU departments, it’s pretty demanding on the RAM side, requiring eight gigabytes. Looks like the times in which four gigabytes of RAM were plenty for PC gaming have come to an end.

Incidentally, those who will pre-order on Steam or will receive the Horizon Omega ship as a bonus. You can see it below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
