The Farm51 has dropped the official World War 3 PC system requirements alongside a PC release date. World War 3 will be hitting Steam Early Access on October 19th. World war 3 is quite blatantly an attempt to be a spiritual successor to Battlefield's modern warfare outings. With Battlefield V heading back to WW2, that alone should be enough to generate big interest. You've got about a month to prepare for the end of the world, here are the PC specs for WW3.

World War 3 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 770 or Radeon HD 7870
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

World War 3 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

As far as system specs go, World War 3's are right down the middle. These are just about the standard set of system requirements you'd expect for a modern big-budget title, although WW3's budget may be smaller than most. Large-scale multiplayer battles are going to be the order of the day in World War 3 though, and that means you'll need a reasonably decent rig for stable performance. The good news is World War 3 runs in the ever-reliable Unreal Engine 4, so performance should hopefully be decent. The bad news is PUBG was also developed in Unreal Engine 4, so make of that what you will.

In terms of the minimum system requirements for WW3, a 2GB video card paired with a quad-core processor is a must. The official minimum is the GeForce GTX 770 or Radeon HD 7870, but more modern GPUs like the GTX 960, GTX 1050, and the Radeon RX 560 should do the trick.

If you want to crank the graphics settings up in World War 3 though, you're going to need some significantly faster firepower. A mighty 16GB RAM is recommended, along with a quad-core processor with multithreading. We've seen recently that standard quad-cores can run into performance issues in modern games, so having eight threads should stabilise the frame rate. As for the video cards, the official recommended GPUs are the GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290, so the likes of the GTX 1060 6GB and the Radeon RX 580 should run WW3 at high frame rates without breaking a sweat.
