Konami and Pro Evolution Software Productions have announced the PC requirements needed to run Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. According to Konami, alongside the minimum and recommended specs, the game will also have support for 4K graphics.

Earlier today, Konami tweeted out on their official Twitter account a full rundown of all the requirements needed to run the PC version of Pro Evolution Soccer. In the past, the PC versions of Pro Evolution Soccer were unable to reach their full graphic potential. However, when comparing the specs from Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 it’s a massive leap regarding graphics, but it will also mean more powerful hardware as well.

PC players looking to run Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 on minimum specs will get the graphics card that has a 2GB VRAM  along with 8GB of RAM and a solid quad-core CPU. Regarding processors, however, there is a massive difference between the AMD FX-4100 and the Core i5-3450although based on the facts alone, it is safe to assume that Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will run fine with either one. Out of all the minimum specs, however, the 8GB of RAM is the most demanding.

When comparing the minimum and recommended specs, it’s a minimal leap regarding hardware, which limits the number of graphical options for the game. Theoretically, the only difference separating the minimum from recommending specs are which processor and graphics card you use. Of course, if you have a PC that can run 4K resolution you will benefit the most from the graphical leap because the publisher has confirmed that depending on your specs the game will run in 4K and Ultra Wide resolutions.

You can check out the minimum and PC Specs down below. Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will launch on September 12th, 2017 on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
