For all the Star Wars fans out there, the wait is almost over. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is scheduled to launch April 28 on PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. However, if you’re planning to play on PC, you’re going to need some serious hardware requirements. Electronic Arts has just revealed the minimum and recommended specs for the game, and they are quite substantial.
The minimum system requirements include 8GB RAM, a 4 core/8 thread AMD Ryzen 5 1400 or Intel Core i7-7700 processor, AMD Radeon RX 580 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, and 155GB of storage. The recommended specs are 16GB RAM, a 4 core/8 thread AMD Ryzen 5 5600X or Intel Core i5-11600K processor, AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card, and 155GB of storage.
While the CPU and GPU requirements aren’t exactly low, it’s the storage that stands out the most. 155GB is a lot of storage – roughly triple what was needed for the previous game, 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Thankfully, SSDs are regularly available at reduced prices, with some models like the XPG Atom 50 providing 512 GB of space for as little as $39.99.
If you’re planning to play Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on a console, there’s no word yet on how much space the game will take up, but it’s probably a good idea to audit anything you haven’t played in the past week or so, just in case.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set to launch April 28 and is sure to be an incredible experience for all the Star Wars fans out there. However, if you’re planning on playing on PC, make sure you meet the substantial hardware requirements or you may find yourself struggling to keep up.
