Here are the Borderlands 3 system requirements

Modest machines should do fine


Borderlands 3 launches in just a couple of weeks so – assuming you’re not a Steam diehard – you won’t have to wait much longer to dig into Gearbox’s latest loot shooter. Today, the developers have unveiled the full Borderlands 3 system requirements, and if you’ve played any PC games in the past few years, your machine is probably good to go.

On the minimum side – which is here listed as “1080p gaming” – Gearbox makes the modest recommendation of an AMD FX-8350 or Intel i5 3570 paired with a Radeon HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 680. Even the recommended specs for 1440p are fairly light, with a Ryzen 5 2600 or i7 4770 matched up alongside an RX 590 or GTX 1060.

The developers have also shared the graphics settings you’ll be able to play with on the Borderlands 3 release date. These include FOV options from 70 to 110, unlimited frame rates or custom FPS limits. UI scaling, resolution scaling, and all the tweakable bells and whistles you’d expect – you can see those in full on the official site.
