Forza Horizon 4’s system requirements are the same as Forza Horizon 3’s

Update, August 31: The Forza Horizon 4 system requirements have been revealed

Ahead of its release in just over a month’s time, the Forza Horizon 4 system requirements have been revealed. The requirements appeared on the game’s Windows Store page earlier today, and you’ll be pleased to know that you won’t need an brand-new machine in order to run it.

After Gamescom, there were rumours that the Forza Horizon 4 system requirements would be lower than its predecessor’s. That’s not technically true, but it looks like the optimisation that Playground Games has been working on for the title has paid off, as the new game has almost exactly the same requirements as Forza Horizon 3.

After Gamescom, Kotaku reported that the game’s creative director, Ralph Fulton, had said that Forza Horizon 4’s minimum spec would be lower than the baseline offered for Forza Horizon 3. From what I can see, that’s not actually the case, but the two games will have largely similar minimum requirements in terms of RAM, processor, and GPU. Given the two-year gap between the two games, that’s pretty good going.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the Forza Horizon 4 system requirements, which you can check out in further detail on the store page or the system requirements lab, aka Can You Run It.

Minimum system requirements:
OS: Windows 10
RAM: 10GB
Video Memory: 2GB
Processor: Intel i3-4170 OR Intel i5 750
GPU: NVidia 650TI OR AMD R7 250x

Recommended system requirements:
OS: Windows 10
RAM: 12GB
Video Memory: 4GB
Processor: Intel i7-3820
GPU: NVidia GTX 1060 3BG OR AMD R9 290x

The Forza Horizon 4 release date is relatively close – October 2 is just a little more than a month away, so if you don’t have the power you need to run it, you’ve got a little while left to make the necessary adjustments.
