Good morning peasants, what a glorious day it is here in the Republic of Tropico. With great power comes even greater wisdom, and El Presidente has blessed us with a small portion of his sagacity to reveal the Tropico 6 PC system requirements.

Tropico 6 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2130 3.4 GHz or AMD APU A10-7850K 3.7 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 750 2GB or Radeon HD 7870 2GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 20GB Available Hard Drive Space

Tropico 6 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3340 3.1GHz or AMD FX-8300 3.3GHz
  • 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: 20 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Tropico 6 is a big, bold step for the long-running management series, finally moving the game into Unreal Engine 4 rather than its usual bespoke engine. Unreal Engine 4 enables new developer Limbic to double down on the simulation elements of Tropico 6. In Tropico 6, a greater focus is being placed on the citizens themselves. Each individual citizen will have independent AI that drives them to look for work, or to head down to the pub, or to draw arms in resistance.

The downside to this technological advancement is, of course, the system specs have shot up in comparison to 2014's Tropico 5. The minimum specs for Tropico 6 are now greater than the recommended specs for Tropico 5. It's all change then, although the Tropico 6 system requirements shouldn't be of major concern to anyone with a gaming PC built in the last 4 or 5 years. 

Down at the minimum spec, you'll now be needing a dual-core Core i3 processor equivalent, paired with a 2GB video card. Tread carefully if you've got the minimum spec GTX 750 as the Tropico 6 system requirements suggest you'll need a 2GB custom variant.

Those wanting to crank up Tropico 6's graphics settings will need a matching bump in hardware too. 4GB versions of the Radeon R9 380 or GeForce GTX 960 are required. Again, beefed up AIB version could be required due to the 4GB video memory requirement.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run Tropico 6 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to Tropico 6 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Tropico 6 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.
