Dragon’s Dogma now has system requirements, they’re not ferocious

Dragon's Dogma PC

We’re finally getting Dragon’s Dogma on PC in January. That’s worth a few huzzahs in itself, but also worth cheering is that a wide range of systems should easily run the game, thanks to system requirements that are not as fiery hot as the dragons you’ll face in the game.

Dragon’s Dogma is a game about kicking people off cliffs, which means you’re suddenly very interested indeed.

Minimum Specs:

OS: Windows Vista or newer
Processor: Intel Core i5-660 CPU or equivalent
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon HD 5870 or equivalent
DirectX: Version 9.0c
Storage: 22 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX-compatible sound card or onboard audio chip

Recommended Specs:

OS: Windows Vista or newer
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K or equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or equivalent
DirectX: Version 9.0c
Storage: 22 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX-compatible sound card or onboard audio chip

The game will run with an unlocked framerate, and can scale up to 4K textures should you have the tech. Keyboard and mouse support is in there too (hey, you never know with these console ports).

The original version released on consoles in 2013, and was sort of overshadowed by other fantasy RPGs. That’s a crying shame, since Dragon’s Dogma is easily one of the most impressive entries in the genre, with brilliant monsters you can clamber over as you attempt to behead them, a vast world to wander, and a great party system that sees you travel with characters created by other players. In my mind, it’s always felt like the Japanese answer to Baldur’s Gate. Hopefully that’s enough to get you interested.

Thanks, PC Gamer.
