Outside of the hardcore FGC, SoulCalibur is one of the most beloved fighting game franchises around. It's accessible yet deep, and each outing typically comes with a solid single-player offering. SoulCalibur VI is the first game in the series to come to PC, packing 4K support, the best visuals around, and the capability for a rock-solid 60 frames per second. But what do PC gaming hardware do you need to run SoulCalibur VI? Let's find out.

SoulCalibur VI is an Unreal Engine 4 game from Bandai Namco, the very same engine as Bamco's other major fighting game franchise - Tekken 7. Which leads us to the revelation, of sorts, that the SCC6 system requirements are identical to those of Tekken 7. To that end, the PC performance of SoulCalibur VI should be pretty similar to that of Tekken 7.

In terms of specs, we see a fairly large gulf between the minimum and recommended system requirements for SoulCalibur 6. Down at the low end you will have to sacrifice resolution but SC6 is still playable on a 6-year-old mid-range graphics card with 2GB VRAM. Pair it with a modest dual-core processor and you're good to go, meaning SoulCalibur VI will run on a very wide range of PC gaming systems.
