Tecmo Koei has taken its sweet time revealing the system requirements for Dynasty Warriors 9, announcing them the same day as DW9 releases on PC. Does that mean we have something to worry about? Let's take a look at Dynasty Warrior 9's official PC system specs.

Dynasty Warriors 9 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.0GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon R7 370
  • HDD: 50GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Dynasty Warriors 9 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 3 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or Radeon RX 570 4GB
  • HDD: 50GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Dynasty Warriors 9 is undoubtedly the biggest leap the series has ever taken in its history, both in terms of visuals and in the scope of what Tecmo Koei is trying to achieve. This is the first Dynasty Warriors game to be open-world, for starters, and it means Dynasty Warriors 9 is several times more demanding that Dynasty Warriors 8. It's barely even worth comparing the games - DW8 runs on a Pentium 4 2.0GHz with a GeForce 7300 GT.

Nope, you'll need to set your sights higher for Dynasty Warriors 9. The open-world lends itself to some demanding CPU requirements, and you'll be needing at least a Core i5-2400 or an FX-6350. While they're both quite old, they're still towards the higher-end in terms of minimum specs. The GPUs are a little more forgiving, and a mid to low-end GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon R7 370 with at least 2GB VRAM will be enough.

Should you want to max out Dynasty Warrior 9's PC graphics settings at 1080p, a whole lot more firepower is needed. A GeForce GTX 1060 or a Radeon RX 570 will be needed, although you'll be able to get away with the lower 3GB and 4GB VRAM variants.  

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Dynasty Warriors 9 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users.

I cannot blame the developer but the game is bad optimized, the battle system is ok but well 720p and very low setting for steady 60 fps gameplay thats horrible
