Anthem PC System Requirements Announced

Anthem is set to be a big release in 2019, and with many itching to get their hands on this Sci-Fi shooter, EA has released the requirements needed to play the game on PC. 

Anthem is the latest game from Bioware, the EA studio that has put out the popular sci-fi action series Mass Effect. Many have kept their expectations in check for Anthem after the lackluster Mass Effect: Andromeda, but early previews of the game look promising. PC gamers looking to get their rig running the latest from Bioware will need to make sure they can handle the following minimum required specs:

OS: 64-bit Windows 10

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 or AMD FX-6350 RAM: 8 GB System Memory

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 760, AMD Radeon 7970 / R9280X

GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory

HARD DRIVE: At least 50 GB of free space

DIRECTX: DirectX 11

EA and Bioware have also listed the recommended specs for an optimum experience:

OS: 64-bit Windows 10

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz

RAM: 16 GB System Memory

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1060/RTX 2060, AMD RX 480

GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory

HARD DRIVE: At least 50 GB of free space

DIRECTX: DirectX 11

Early gamers to get their hands on the alpha version of the game have reported that Anthem runs similarly to Battlefield V, as both games utilize similar outputs and the EA Frostbite engine. Recently, the Frostbite engine has been rumored to be adapted for the Switch as well, meaning eventually these two games might get ported, although no solid information is available as of this article. As the game’s release date creeps up on the gaming community, marketing has gotten much more aggressive, with gameplay previews and more info coming out each day. The game will also release for PS4 and Xbox One, but as most games go, will run at a higher quality on a well-equipped PC.

With comparisons to Destiny and Mass Effect placing the game in an odd position pre-release, Anthem will look to become a new multiplayer phenomenon when it releases February 22nd.
