Here are the Just Cause 4 system requirements

You want Just Cause 4 system requirements? You've got them

Just Cause 4 system requirements are here. The latest destructive adventure for Rico Rodriguez launches in December which is now, astoundingly, next month. So if you’re rushing to get your PC in line for some sandbox explosions, Avalanche and Square Enix have happily obliged – and we’ve got you covered with the full list of specs.

Even if you managed to play Just Cause 3 alright, the fourth entry might push you toward an upgrade – at least if you want to go beyond the bottom options and crank up the visual experience. The 2015 game already had some stiff CPU requirements if you wanted to get the most out of the robust (and ridiculous) physics simulation, and Just Cause 4 is no exception.

Read on for the full list of specifications.

Just Cause 4 minimum requirements
OS: Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update for Windows 7 (64-bit versions only)
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.1 GHz | AMD FX-6300 @ 3.5 GHz or better
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2GB VRAM or better) | AMD R9 270 (2GB VRAM or better)
HDD: 59 GB

Just Cause 4 recommended requirements
OS: Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz | AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz or equivalent
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (6GB VRAM or better) | AMD Vega 56 (6GB VRAM or better)

Just Cause 4 recommended requirements for 4K
OS: Windows 10 (64-bit Fall Creators update)
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 (3.6 GHz or higher) | AMD Ryzen 5 1600X (3.6 GHz or higher)
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Take extra note of that hard drive requirement if you’re going to play in 4K. Since it’s not exactly the same as the other sets of requirements, that may mean we’ll see an additional 4K texture pack – though such speculation remains to be confirmed.

The devs are quite proud of what they’ve achieved. In the reveal announcement for these specs, they say “the highly evolved Apex Engine allows us to squeeze every last drop of power from PC hardware. Incredible visuals, unparalleled physics, full freedom, and a brand new toolset are joined by the most interactive, extreme weather simulations you’ve ever seen in a videogame.”

When the Just Cause 4 release date hits, we’ll see just how well those boasts play out. The game’s certainly looking impressive so far, and you can follow that link for much more detail on what Avalanche has in store.
