Manor Lords system requirements

This time-accurate RTS puts you in control of your very own medieval civilization, but are the minimum and recommended specs too demanding?

What are the Manor Lords system requirements? Despite being a very detailed and historically accurate representation of what it’s like to build a medieval empire, Manor Lords is surprisingly light on its system requirements. Most gaming laptops and PCs from the last decade should have no problem with its demands.

You won’t need one of the best graphics cards to get the game running. In fact, it’s the recently discontinued Nvidia GeForce GTX cards that currently occupy all levels of the Manor Lords system requirements.

Here are the Manor Lords system requirements:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 or later Windows 10 or later
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050
AMD Radeon RX 460
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960
AMD Radeon RX 570
CPU Intel Core i5 4590
AMD FX 4350
Intel Core i5 6600
AMD FX 9590
Storage 16GB 16GB

The Manor Lords minimum requirements are incredibly low, which is partly to be expected from a simulation game even in 2024. You’ll need an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or AMD Radeon RX 460 graphics card, and an Intel Core i5 4590 or AMD FX 4350 CPU. You’ll also need 8GB of RAM.

Intel’s Core 4000 series CPUs are now more than a decade old, while AMD’s pre-Ryzen FX chips were first released in 2011, with the FX 4350 featured in these system requirements being released in 2013. This gives you some idea of how simple Manor Lords should be to run, especially on modern hardware.

The Manor Lords recommended specs don’t demand a huge amount more, with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 570 GPU needed, alongside an Intel Core i5 6600 or AMD FX 9590 CPU. The RAM requirement also increases to 12GB here.

There is still life in the Nvidia GTX branding when it comes to system requirements, as even new triple-A games use cite GPUs such as the GTX 1650 and GTX 1080 as entry-level options for gaming at 720p with low settings.

The Manor Lords download size sits at a delightful 16GB, a refreshing change from the sometimes 100GB+ file sizes that eat away at our drives. Speaking of drives, there isn’t a specific need for a gaming SSD rather than a hard drive, although we would recommend one for the performance benefits it offers over using a traditional mechanical hard drive.
