Fallout 4 System Requirements Announced

Minimum

Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
8 GB RAM
30 GB free HDD space
NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent

Recommended

Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent
8 GB RAM
30 GB free HDD space
NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent

Thankfully, these are more reasonable than those for Battlefront and my PC should do the job, which is excellent news.

The update from Bethesda also includes news on exact release time: 12:01am in most territories (EST if you’re in North America). You can also see which languages the game will support in your region. Naturally, you can play with an Xbox One/360 controller if you really want to, the game supports Steam Achievements, and there’s some information about pre-order bonuses and the Pip-Boy app.

Those graphics!  😎

I 100% believe the requirements of games are false these days, I will put on my tinfoil hat and say AMD, Intel and Nvidia pay to have the game publishers post these massive requirements. Look at the witcher and other games on release they said "Epic gear only" I ran it on a laptop with a Quadro 1000m that's pretty much a 540m no issues.

But on the lighter side, anyone taking a week off to play fallout 4? or is that just me haha

Yeah I don't believe the min requirements anymore. Still looks good!

I read somewhere where they were suggesting that they exaggerate the min requirements so that if you buy a game with PC specs less than the min they can say "well these are the min you needed to run it." Trying to minimize complaints I guess.

A week! How much gameplay time is there going to be to beat the game?
