It's been a full decade since we've been treated to a SpellForce sequel. An absolute cult favourite, Grimlore Games knows how to keep its fans waiting. SpellForce 3 will be bringing its unique blend of real-time strategy and role-playing to PC next month though, and it's looking like a very intoxicating combo indeed. As far as strategy games go, Spellforce 3 looks visually spectacular, so here are the system requirements you'll need if you hope to run Spellforce 3 on PC.

SpellForce 3 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850
  • HDD: 15GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

SpellForce 3 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290
  • HDD: 15GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

In the grand scheme of things, these system requirements actually hover right around the average system requirements for a AAA game in 2017. It's undoubtedly the CPUs which could probe the most problematic for those looking to run Spellforce 3 though. Even the minimum spec Intel Core i5-3570 is still decent by today's standards so you'll be wanting a moderately capable quad-core processor if you want to run Spellforce 3 without a hitch.

On the graphics front, your key aim here should be to have 2GB of VRAM. Most cards that have 2GB GDDR5 memory should exceed the minimum requirements for Spellforce 3, such as the GeForce GTX 750 2GB or the Radeon R7 260. For the recommended specs Grimoire suggests a GeForce GTX 970 or a Radeon R9 290 will be capable of maxing Spellforce 3's graphics settings out. For modern equivalents, look towards the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti / 1060 and the Radeon RX 570 / 580.

I've already posted this in a shout but I figured to also spread the word here. The second game in the Spellforce franchise is offered free of charge on GameSessions. The anniversary edition no less. One hell of a game to miss out on! :)

I'm really hyped for this. And Recommended specs almost exactly match my specs. It must be a sign :o
I wish it best success.
