Bandai Namco has announced the worldwide release date for Tekken 7, along with the official Tekken 7 PC system requirements. Originally planned for early 2017, Tekken 7 will now be launching on June 2nd for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s going to be joined by a season pass and all the usual assorted pre-order gubbins, but it’s the Tekken 7 PC specs we’re really interested in. Bandai Namco isn’t pulling any punches with this either - Tekken 7 seems to be a great looking game and it’s got the system requirements to match.

Tekken 7 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-4160 3.6 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7 370
  • DX: DirectX 11

Tekken 7 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 6 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
  • DX: Direct X 11

UPDATE: A quick word of warning. Isshak Gravi, Tekken 7 developer, has said "Be careful though: recommended specs are not final yet." Bear in mind then that the Tekken 7 recommended requirements are subject to change. Thanks to Lambadox for spotting that.

Compared to other fighting games of its ilk, Tekken 7 really steps things up a notch in the system requirements department. The minimum specs for Tekken 7 are just a shade lower than Street Fighter 5's recommend specs. You're going to need a relatively decent DX11 graphics card with 2GB video memory. Namco Bandai suggest the GTX 660 or the Radeon R7 370. If you've got the ever-popular GeForce GTX 750 Ti then you should be good to go.

The bump up to the recommend requirements for Tekken 7 is a huge one however. You're going from an older i3 or Phenom CPU to needing some pretty high-end hardware in the Intel Core i5-4690 or FX-8370. Neither of these is ever really troubled by gaming performance, particularly in a fighting game, so don't expect this to drastically impact performance. It's the graphics card where the biggest changes come in. A GeForce GTX 1060 or a Radeon RX 480 (8GB) is about as high as we expect from AAA games today, particularly when playing at 1080p. This is only really going to be necessary if you want to turn the Tekken 7 graphics options up to the max though.

Lastly a mention too for the installation size. Tekken 7 is absolutely huge, swallowing up 60GB on your hard drive space. The download is likely to be a little bit smaller than this but it's still a sizeable ask of people with slower connections or potential bandwidth caps.

For what it's worth Tekken 7 is running on Unreal Engine 4, the same game engine as Street Fighter V. Usually this engine runs fantastically but there are always going to be some curve-balls. UE3 ran great and then we had Batman: Arkham Knight for example.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Tekken 7 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Tekken 7 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Tekken 7 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

No worries, the Arcade version of the game which is released 2 years ago is based on Windows OS, someone caught it running on Windows 7 while the arcade is booting hehe. Been played the arcade long time ago and the game is running fluid smooth, no big issues. Looks like this game gonna be have a big blast debut on PC

Yup, pretty much like it. No doubt that the devs use PC architecture since unreal engine is practically based on PC after all cause you build and test it on PC, porting on PC could be a 1st thing. Just trivia, some japanese arcade games was also build on windows and possible running it on home PC with some kind of way.

Well, I preordered TTT2 and as a result, I was given a behind the scenes documentary. Turns out the series producer, Harada, is a major fan of PC. In the video, he is seen buying a lot of parts to build a high-end, water cooled PC. Later in the video, he talks about contemplating creating Tekken for PC. I guess it was foreshadowing. :)

The HDD space requirement is simply unacceptable. 60GB for a fighting game? Keep going like this and we'll have to buy a new system drive for every new game that comes out.
The rest of the system specs are on the high side, but otherwise alright. The game probably will scale well across a wide range of rigs.

I was wondering too. Is the game feature are far wider than its predecessors, or they're just lazy to optimize their textures (or anything else related)?
Except that, i'm glad Tekken will be (finally) released for PC.

You have to remember Tekken is a 3D world environment meaning for moving around in circles which if it looks a lot more realistic then i can understand the size and also KOBE23 most people has a 500gb - 1tb secondary drive already so 60gb is not too much really if you think about it.

Well i did say most not all and also you could go out get like a 500gb hard drive for like what 20$ - 30$ which could fit inside 8-15 games really and yes on your laptop as well using an external hard drive works well for loading up games and such (if you are using USB 3.0) cause i have tested it out before which they load but expect an extra like 5 seconds of loading time.

Kinda defeats the purpose of having a laptop in the first place though. I don't mind peripherals and stuff, but I hate attaching attaching external hardware for increasing performance. I got the space for it, and I intend to preorder the game, but I would appreciate any reduction in size. If the scenario campaign is as expansive as I think it is, then it's fine. But it's a bunch of uncompressed audio like in Titanfall, then I will be quite annoyed. We'll have to see when released.

Ow yes, better have a dualshock for this game. Also, hope this game support DS4. So, no need to have other third party software that make me keep avoiding to buy this controller and use xbox 360 instead. I actually feel more comfortable using DS controller for tekken and guess I'll buy this controller too later.

There is going to be a scenario campaign mode that will feature a lot of AI at once. The last scenario campaign brought the 360 to its knees at times. The news one is said to be "... better than ever..." by the devs. Additionally, they ramped up a lot of the physics compared to Tekken 6 and Tag 2, as Tekken 7 accounts for wind, which the previous two did not.

As a tekken fanboy, I call BS... -_-
There are NO actual physics on the CPU side to be had in a fighter game... only simple imitating logic.
And a lot of AI? Having a lot of AI does NOT mean anything, if the AI is simple as hell...

I call BS on you calling BS! The AI are not simple in the slightest as they have the ability to learn player tactics and can counter accordingly. The AI were not nerfed in the scenerio campaign last time, though it was still evident that the Xbox 360 couldn't handle them. The way they got around this was to have a handful of AI be "active", and to have the rest be on "standby". If they mess with this ratio, the CPU requirements will increase dramatically. Additionally, as a fanboy, you should know that the amount of physic intensive clothing has dramatically increased, even more than Tekken 5, which was the last game to account for wind.

You know the last time there was a Tekken game that was 2007 which within 10 years a lot of things change for gaming and also Dragon Ball Xenoverse recommended is an i5 and it is a fighter game still as well oh and lets not forget the recommended for Street Fighter V is a i5-4690K so i have no idea why you might be freaking out for it using an i5 because if the recommended was like a i7 6700K then i would start to give those "wtf" moments.

Well, Playing fighting games need constant 60 fps framerate to keep the flow of the game, it's very important for this kind of game especially for tourney players and online ranked. PC has many background programs that may possibly disturb the game. It's always wise to have a powerful CPU for the game.

No because Tekken Tag 2 was close to pulling in world records for the most characters. It's likely due to the campaign mode as this trailer shows off a lot of stuff previously not disclosed to the public before. With so many environments and cutscenes on display, along with the knowledge they are bringing back scenario campaign, it's likely they are going overboard with it. If these cutscenes and environments are varied and numerous throughout scenario campaign, then that would explain the install size. Tekken 6 would've been huge as well, but they limited the graphics severely to keep performance and install size down.
