We're almost a month away now from the PC release of Hideo Kojima's infamous literal-walking-simulator, Death Stranding. Whilst it certainly does look beautiful on the PlayStation, how will it handle on PC? The official PC system requirements have now been revealed so we can get a nice idea of well it will perform at least.

Before we jump in though, we have been gracefully given a decent amount of specs required that includes the minimum requirements in order to get the game running at 720p and 30fps, plus two recommended requirements intended for 30fps and 60fps gameplay at 1080p screen resolution. Either way it's clear that Death Stranding is the type of game where reaching anywhere between those frame rates will be perfectly playable.

So let's take a look at the official system requirements for Death Stranding on PC...

Death Stranding minimum system requirements

Death Stranding recommended system requirements (30fps)

Death Stranding recommended system requirements (60fps)

Death Stranding will require a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 590 8GB graphics card with a Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz or Ryzen 5 1600 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting and 60fps on 1080p.

Death Stranding needs a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz or Ryzen 3 1200 processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 1050 or Radeon RX 560 to get it to run minimum system requirements. This will return around 30FPS at 720p screen resolution on low graphics settings, but you can also adjust the settings further to tweak.

Minimum and recommended RAM requirements are 8 GB system memory. Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 12. In short you need a 4 year old PC for best Death Stranding performance.

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

I completely forgot this was coming to PC. Not really excited for it anymore but more games coming to PC is always nice.

It wasnt so hard now was it? Now I can believe more exclusives can be easily transformed to a fine pc port, but this next gen screams more exclusivity and time grabs from other platforms (cod mw for one), let me guess.... the game is gonna be 60$ for a good 3 months until we can squeeze some price cut whereas on ps4 can be had for half the price (at least where iam)

It's so old, but it still shows up on so many current games recommended requirements.

By the way doesn't make sense that Ryzen 1200 is rated higher than Ryzen 1400 on game-debate. Other than that Ryzen 3100 is rated laughably low, too. It's so much better than 1200, but rated lower, lol.

Even though the system requirement is pretty solid, no complains about that, but from the looks of it, the game should run better on Nvidia GPU compared to AMD

equivalents, RX570 is a lot better than the 1050ti, also the 590 compared to the 1060. Or maybe they just listed the most powerful GPUs in the $200 range from

both sides and called it a day. There is a bit of GPU power discrepancy in those system requirements, at least from the looks of it.

Well the 590 is about 10-15% faster than the reference 1060, there should be less difference with a decently OCed model.
