Full system requirements for Wildstar reported on Apr-15-2014
WildStar is an upcoming scifi MMORPG looking to win back the classic MMO players of yore, who've been abandoning subscription-play in droves in favour of the rise and rise of the MOBA.
There's been innumerable MMOs claiming to be the new World of Warcraft, but this new dev team comprising a number of ex-WoW, Fallout, Half-Life, and Diablo devs believe they've struck the winning combination. Before you can even think about playing it though, you're going to need to know if your rig is up to the demands of the WildStar system requirements...

In keeping with MMO tradition, these WildStar system requirements aren't overly demanding to get up and running. Getting as large an audience as possible to play their game is key here for Carbine Studios, so these minimum requirements for WildStar shouldn't pose too much of a problem to most.
The ever-reliable GeForce 8800 GT and the Radeon HD 3850 bring up the rear, while you're going to need a reasonable dual-core processor to get WildStar up and running. We suspect these requirements should be fine for normal gameplay, but should you be trying to get in on those all-important large-scale raids in WildStar then you're going to need a bit more under the hood.
Whatever the case, you're going to need to clear out some space for WildStar on your hard drive. It takes up a whopping 30GB, something that is happening all too often these days. Time to invest in that larger SSD soon I think!
For the recommended WildStar PC requirements the all-important 8GB RAM is required, something which we're now seeing in the majority of newly-announced big budget titles. It seems like 8GB's the future and it's here to stay.
