Gangs of Sherwood system requirements

Your band of Merry Men won't need need to rob from the rich to run Gangs of Sherwood on budget PCs, but the co-op game could prove taxing on higher settings.

What are the Gangs of Sherwood system requirements? Regardless of whether you’re planning to play Robin, Friar Tuck, Marian, or Little John, the PC hardware you need to join the Merry Men remains the same. Thankfully, the barrier to entry is low, even if optimal performance comes at a surprisingly high price.

The Gangs of Sherwood minimum requirements are surprisingly light, requiring neither the best graphics card nor processor. For context, the game will run on CPUs as old as the now near-decade old Intel Core i7 4790, so most modern chips should be more than capable.

Similarly, so long as your GPU is more powerful than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super or AMD Radeon RX 570, you’ll be ready for a bit of co-operative wealth redistribution. However, don’t forget to ensure your system is packing 16GB of RAM, preferably in a dual-channel configuration.

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 Windows 10
CPU Intel Core i7 4790
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
Intel Core i5 12600K
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super
AMD Radeon RX 570
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
Intel Arc A770
Storage 15GB 15GB

Strangely, the Gangs of Sherwood recommended specs are a massive jump from the floor established by the minimum requirements. While not quite the best gaming CPU options around, both the Intel Core i5 12600K and AMD Ryzen 5 7600X are only a few years old, and may indicate the game is fairly processor intensive.

Things are less demanding on the GPU side of things. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, or Intel Arc A770 will provide enough pixel pushing power for an ideal experience. That said, developer Appeal Studios haven’t provided performance expectations.

The Gangs of Sherwood size is probably the easiest specification to meet of the bunch, clocking in at a measly 15GB. There’s no explicit call for the best SSD you have, meaning hard drives shouldn’t be off the table, but installing it on the fastest storage you can is naturally advised.
