Full system requirements for Dragon Age 3: Inquisition reported on Oct-10-2014

Dragon Age Inquisition is out on November 18th in the US and following closely in the EU. Bioware have had a slightly up and down time with this series. Dragon Age Origins, which is currently free, was a huge success and a startling new IP, but the fan base felt that Dragon Age 2 pandered too much to the console generation. Missing out on the depth of the classic.

Dragon Age Inquisition is the third installment and meant to bridge the gap between those previous two titles, while still delivering a huge in depth story and gameplay mechanic that appeals to the masses. Well today we have been told the Dragon Age Inquisition system requirements so we can check to see how well our PCs will run DAI specs. I can tell you now, the recommended reqs are pretty heavy while the minimum reqs are fairly gentle, suggesting that it is catering for all PCs.

In Dragon Age Inquisition you are set to travel the lands of Thedas, a place fraught with strife, where factions are constantly in conflict with one another, while a demonic force builds in preparation for war. DAI will place the hero player in the role of saviour.

Dragon Age Inquisition Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 / Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD six core CPU @ 3.2 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB of system memory needed
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870 or Radeon R9 270 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
  • GPU VRAM: 2 GB graphics card memory
  • HD: 26 GB hard drive space required
  • DX: 11 Direct X
  • Control: Gamepad or Keyboard & Mouse

Dragon Age Inquisition Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD 4xCore @ 2.5 GHz / Intel quad core CPU @ 2.0 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 4870 / NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
  • GPU VRAM: 512 MB
  • HD: 26 GB
  • DX: 10 Direct X
  • Control: Keyboard & Mouse

The minimum graphics requirements are pretty easy going in DAI, with the ancient but stalwart 8800 GT finding its place again. The minmum requirements are requesting a quad core from either AMD or Intel which seems interesting and one we will be exploring further once the game is released in November. Likewise the recommended system memory is asking for a not entirely uncommon but still pretty serious 8GB RAM. This year has seen quite a few of those sorts of RAM requests but not all of the games asking for it really needed or used 8GB RAM. So it seemed like it was a little over kill.

We are told that the PC version of Dragon Age Inquisition is going to allow the PC gamer to customise their visual experience, through a plethora of graphics settings and video resolution options. With 4K screen resolution and AMD Mantle support with its PC purpose built HUD.

UPDATE: Forgot to mention that the resolution will be 1080p on PS4, while the Xbox One will have 900p.

UPDATE 2: The Graphics card VRAM for recommended system requirements has been lowered from 3GB to 2GB VRAM.

A greater focus this time around has been put back on the round by round tactical strategy approach to combat, harking back to classic roleplaying games like Baldurs gate and Dragon Age Origins. While you can play Dragon Age 3 with a gamepad/controller it is also "fine tuned" for mouse and keyboard gameplay style as well.

So how is your rig going to fair against the Dragon Age Inquisiton? Will you be able to play this at max or are you expecting to have to make some serious adjustments to get it to run smoothly? Also who is looking forward to this and who enjoyed DA Origins and DA2?

It would be better if you stick at High settings with some at Ultra. I think you'll get 35+ fps.
