I'll admit sandbox colony management game Aven Colony has been flying a little under my radar, but Team 17 has picked up publishing duties on Mothership Entertainment's first title. Aven Colony is out in July and already shows a great degree of promise, plopping the player on alien worlds and tasking you with building a thriving colony amid lightning storms, sand devils and deadly gas explosions. At its heart its an economy-based management title fused with survival elements. So far so good, but will your PC survive Aven Colony's official PC system requirements?

Aven Colony Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 840T 2.9 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1.25 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 or AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 25 GB available space

Aven Colony Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 3.4 GHz or AMD APU A10-7850K 3.7 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 or AMD Radeon R9 390X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 25 GB available space

As far as management and strategy titles go, particularly a fairly low-key indie one like this, the recommended specs are actually pretty lofty. Aven Colony demands a video card with at least 4GB VRAM if you want to max out all of the graphics settings, alongside a capable quad-core processor and 8GB RAM. As a performance hog, it is, on paper at least, right up there with the mighty Planet Coaster.

Fortunately, things are a little easier going for Aven Colony's minimum system requirements. In terms of graphics cards, a DirectX 11 capable chip is pretty much your only barrier to entry. Any graphics card bought in the last five years should be enough. CPU demands take a similar dip, requiring just a dual-core processor clocked at 3.3 GHz.

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

Is this like PlanetBase? Because I like planetbase even though It's difficult to survive at the beginning.

Not its not EXACTLY like Planetbase - this is more like Anno. Planetbase you can customize the moduls with custom placing aswell. Here you can't. Planetbase is also pretty limited in scope, where this and Anno have more possibilities.

How is that both AMD A10 and Intel i5 are recomended? The i5 4670 is much faster, is this a typo or?

Been playing the demo. Can say I'm running the game on a mix of medium and high settings with 50+ fps. It's not terribly optimized. Seems to be using the unreal 4 engine. Think it's the same as Paragon in terms of performance. The game itself is so similar to Planetbase, another outer space colony management game. So far having a blast.
