Apex Legends System Requirements - one of the best-optimised battle royale games

What are the Apex Legends system requirements? EA has set the minimum and recommended set up: can you run it?

Apex Legends System Requirements

The time has come for Apex Legends to launch itself bodily out of EA’s proprietary Origin client and land in your hard drive. If you’re worried about the impact it’ll have as it does so (the impact to your framerates, that is), scroll down and find out what hardware you’ll need to soften the landing.

With that tortured metaphor out of the way, let’s get down to business. Apex Legends, EA’s foray into the battle royale sphere, is now out. By incorporating design elements from character-based multiplayer games like Overwatch and Team Fortress, Apex Legends adds a little variety to the genre, while keeping the core elements that have helped make PUBG and Fortnite so successful.

System specs wise, Apex Legends is shaping up to be something of a middle-ground between the broadly accessible Fortnite and the more demanding high specs of PUBG. Provided you acquired your rig sometime in the last five years, chances are you’ll be able to run Apex Legends at a good framerate. To run at max FPS with maxed out graphics might need a more up-to-date setup, but even that’s unlikely to break the bank.

These are the Apex Legends system requirements:

Apex Legends Minimum Requirements

  • Memory: 6 GB
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 6300
  • File Size: 30 GB
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7

Apex Legends Recommended Requirements

  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
  • File Size: 30 GB
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7

As you can see, Apex Legends packs more of a wallop to your system than its competitor, Fortnite, but nowhere near as much as the beefy system requirements of PUBG. See you in the dropship!
