As reported by PC Gamer, FromSoftware‘s upcoming game Elden Ring showed its PC specs briefly on the Steam Storefront before being removed. It is unclear why the specifications were deleted, but visitors to the Steam page now will only see “TBD” (shorthand for to be decided) under system requirements. The game will see its full release on February 24. The spotted minimum requirements were as follows:
OS: Windows 10, Windows 11
Processor: Intel Core i5 8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
Memory: 12GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
The most likely reason for the requirements being removed is that they are not accurate. While reports have said that the future of AAA games will require 12GB of RAM, it would be a first for FromSoftware which has historically low specifications for its games.
With the high specifications listed, it is more likely that these would be recommended requirements rather than minimum. However, it has been reported that Elden Ring’s map could be nine times bigger than the continent seen in the initial network test. This makes it likely that it would be the largest title for the development studio to date.
Whether these are actual requirements for Elden Ring or not will be revealed sometime over the next two weeks before launch.
