BioWare’s Anthem System Requirements Revealed by Electronic Arts

Can you run it?

Anthem PC Requirements

It’s time to clean your keyboards boys and girls because Electronic Arts just revealed Anthem’s system requirements.

Since its official announcement at E3 2018, many PC gamers wanted to know if they can run Anthem on their rigs.

Well, the wait is over and below you can see the minimum and the recommended specs your PC needs to meet in order to run BioWare’s latest action role-playing game.

If you are one of those who played the Closed Alpha in December last year, then you can notice that there are no major changes.

This means that if your PC handled the game in Closed Alpha, you won’t have any problems running the final version.

Furthermore, if you are still not sure how your rig will handle Anthem, you can wait for the game’s Open Beta and VIP Demo. While the latter is somehow exclusive to those who pre-order the game; the Anthem Open Beta has no special requirements; meaning that anyone can test the game.

The schedule for Anthem VIP Demo and Open Beta was also announced by EA.

Moving on to the system requirements for Anthem, here is what configurations EA recommends:

Minimum System Requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 or AMD FX-6350
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 760, AMD Radeon 7970 / R9280X
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB
  • HDD: 50 GB or more
  • DIRECTX: 11

Recommended System Requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060/ RTX 2060, AMD RX 480
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB
  • HDD: 50 GB or more
  • DIRECTX: 11

Obviously, it’s quite hard to tell how Anthem will run if your computer doesn’t meet the minimum system requirements; but thanks to the Open Beta you’ll be able to test it before buying it.

Assuming you have a PC capable to run the game, and you are already decided to buy it; we suggest you take a look at the Legion of Dawn Edition for some cool bonuses.
