You won't need a beast of a PC to play Dragon Age: Inquisition


These specs look pretty modest

Everyone’s itching to get back to Ferelden and save the world from itself in Dragon Age: Inquisition. There’s a civil war to end, and dragons just keep destroying everything. But, PC players need to make sure their hardware is up to snuff before trying their hand at fantasy peacemaker.

EA’s posted the recommended and minimum specs for Inquisitionon its Origin site. They honestly don’t look as bloated as a lot of recent titles. For an ideal experience, BioWare recommends:

OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit CPU: AMD six core CPU @ 3.2 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 3.0 GHz System RAM: 8 GB Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7870 or R9 270, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Memory: 3 GB Hard Drive: 26 GB DirectX 11

Everything’s dialed back a bit for minimum requirements in case you’re playing on a “slightly older setup,” as EA delicately put it:

OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit CPU: AMD quad core CPU @ 2.5 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 2.0 GHz System RAM: 4 GB Graphics CARD: AMD Radeon HD 4870, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Memory: 512 MB Hard Drive: 26 GB DirectX 10
