Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s PC Specs Recommend You Have a Lot of RAM [UPDATED]

Get a look at everything you'll need if you're going to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PC.

Update: Almost to the moment that we published this story, EA changed the specs on PC listing for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to say that 16 GB of RAM is what is recommended, not 32 GB. Turns out it must’ve just been an accident. While that ruins the whole angle of this story, you can still find the original report below.


With only about a month left until launch, the PC specs for EA and Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has today been revealed, and they’re definitely raising some eyebrows.

The minimum specs, which are those that you need on your PC to run Fallen Order at a baseline level, aren’t too shabby and are what you’d normally expect. You’ll need 8 GB of RAM, a fairly low-level graphics cards, and a pretty basic CPU. Chances are that you should be able to run the game without many problems assuming you have a pretty recent rig.

Here’s the full list of minimum specs:

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

OS: 64-bit Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor (AMD): FX-6100 or Equivalent
Processor (Intel): i3-3220 or Equivalent
Memory: 8 GB
Graphics card (AMD): Radeon HD 7750 or Equivalent
Graphics card (NVIDIA): GeForce GTX 650 or Equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
Hard-drive space: 55 GB

On the recommended side is where things get a bit more puzzling. Apparently, if you want to run Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as Respawn intended, you should have 32 GBs of RAM, which isn’t normal. Most games typically recommend that you have about 16 GB, but to see 32 GB is pretty staggering. The other specs are all pretty standard otherwise.

Here’s what’s recommended:

RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS

OS: 64-bit Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor (AMD): Ryzen 7 1700 or Equivalent
Processor (Intel): i7-6700K or Equivalent
Memory: 32 GB
Graphics card (AMD): RX Vega 56 or Equivalent
Graphics card (NVIDIA): GTX 1070 or Equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
Hard-drive space: 55 GB

If you’re not familiar with PC setups, the fact that the game is asking for 32 GB of memory isn’t anything too egregious, especially considering RAM is pretty cheap. It’s more just odd to see because a lot of games typically ask for that much memory. Perhaps there’s more going on under the hood in Fallen Order than it would seem.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is due out next month on November 15 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
