Italian outfit Milestone has long made a name for itself thanks to the MotoGP racing series, the one-stop shop for all things motorbike racing. Now it's trying its hand at an entirely different arena of racing with Gravel, an off-road racer created in Unreal Engine 4 featuring Cross Country, Wild Rushes, Stadium and Speed Cross disciplines. Milestone promises carnage will ensure in Gravel, but will the official system requirements drive your PC into dangerous territory? Let's find out.

Gravel Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon HD 7950
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 40 GB available space

Gravel Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 380
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 40 GB available space 

Compared to Milestone's over game out this summer, MotoGP 17, the system requirements for Gravel are actually extremely reasonable. A combination of low-end dual-core processors and older, mid-range graphics cards like the GeForce GTX 760 and Radeon HD 7950 mean Gravel should be capable of playing on quite a wide range of systems.

Unfortunately there's very little leeway between the minimum and recommended specs for Gravel. This means there's either very few graphics settings to tweak or, hopefully, that Gravel can actually be played on a lower spec PC than the minimum requirements suggest.

Whatever the case, you're going to need a DirectX 11 capable graphics card, and at least 2GB VRAM is a safe bet in 2017. You'll also need a whopping 40GB storage, which is sort of to be expected in the current climate.

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