When a new arena shooter comes out and the development lead has "created Unreal Tournament" on his resume, you should sit up and take notice. That's one Cliff 'CliffyB' Bleszinski, FPS extraordinare, who's working on LawBreakers with his new studio BossKey. At heart a class-based shooter, LawBreakers pits teams of killers against one another; the Law versus the 'Breakers.

Expect lightning quick action, devastating movement, and a dizzying amount of verticality owing to Lawbreakers warped sense of gravity. LawBreakers strides into the arena this coming soon, but is your rig capable of standing toe-to-toe? Find out with the official LawBreakers system requirements. 

LawBreakers Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+ 3.2GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 6350
  • HDD: 12 GB Free Hard Drive Space

LawBreakers Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz or AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390
  • HDD: 12 GB Free Hard Drive Space

CliffyB has never been one to shy away from graphical powerhouses, both during his time at Epic creating Unreal and Gears of War, and he appears to be no different now with new studio BossKey and LawBreakers. 

LawBreakers is an arena shooter through and through, and as such it is imperative that you can reach a solid frame rate in order to not give your opponents a competitive advantage. 60 FPS is deal, but lock LawBreakers to 30 FPS if you must. Be prepared to dial down the settings to hit these targets. 

Moving onto the system requirements though and there's a frankly ridiculous spread between the minimum and recommended for LawBreakers, which is just what we want to see. This shows a great deal of scalability and indicates LawBreakers is going to be playable across a wide variety of gaming rigs. 

Down at the minimum end this is nice a low. A GTX 460 or Radeon HD 6350 are just about the minimum you're going to be able to get away with these days, but it is of course no guarantee of smooth performance. Taking a resolution hit is always going to help though, and with ageing hardware you may have to accept you can't play at 1080p forever.

The jump to recommended requirements for LawBreakers is a massive one, but remember it's not a necessity to hit these. This is just to get LawBreakers looking as great as it possibly can at a solid frame rate. The CPU demands are real pie in the sky though. Neither the Core i7-4790 nor FX-9590 have ever been truly tested by a game and we expect LawBreakers to be no different. The ever reliable GTX 970 and the value-for-money king the Radeon R9 390 make up the graphics cards. Both are hugely popular so there plenty of gamers which should match this. 

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the LawBreakers Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the LawBreakers GPU benchmark chart.

How are a GTX460 and a HD6350 compareble in any way?


Or do you mean HD6850? That would atleast make sense
