Bioware and EA’s newest multiplayer science fiction shooter, Anthemis almost here. With less than a month to go before release, many personal computer (PC) gamers are wondering what kind of specifications (specs) they might need? Unlike console owners, PC gamers need to know exactly what the Anthem PC specs are in order to play. Whether to only try the game via a demo, or for when it releases, the PC specifications are integral to determining the kind of experiences that PC gamers will have.

Thankfully, EA has proactively finalised and made public the Anthem PC specs. Perfect timing too, given how the Anthem demos have arrived, giving gamers a small taste of the final release.

Given how gorgeous Anthem looks and the fact that it is running on the Frostbite engine that powers Battlefield V, it is safe to assume that a fairly decent PC build will be required to run the game in all of its glory.

Minimum Anthem PC specs:

  • Operating system: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i5 3570
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): GTX 760
  • Graphics card (AMD): Radeon 7970/R9280X
  • Video memory: 2GB GPU RAM
  • Memory: 8GB System RAM
  • Hard drive space: At least 50GB of free space
  • DirectX: Direct X 11
  • Internet connection: 512 kbps or faster stable internet connection

Recommended Anthem PC specs:

  • Operating system: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7-4790 3.6GHz
  • Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GTX 1060/RTX 2060
  • Graphics card (AMD): RTX 2060/AMD RX 480
  • Video memory: 4GB GPU RAM
  • Memory: 16GB System RAM
  • Hard drive space: 60GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 11
  • Internet connection: 512 kbps or faster stable internet connection

Although the Anthem PC specs have been released, there is no clear indication of how the game will run at the minimum and recommended options. With that said, Edward has a PC that fits in-between the minimum and recommended specs. With his Intel i5 with an Nvidia GTX 970 and 16 GB RAM, he is able to run newish games at Full HD (1080p) with medium to high settings for graphical options.

If you are curious to see how the game might run on your system, then I highly recommend downloading the demo. Doing so will not only offer you a small taste of the game, but it will also help determine if you have the minimum Anthem PC specs required to run the game once it releases on 22 February 2019.
