The developers behind the upcoming next Age of Empires game have recently updated the official PC system requirements to include a wider range of hardware. So whether you're planning to play it on a high-end desktop PC, or a low-spec laptop, it seems that there's a high likelihood you'll be able to play Age of Empires 4 in some capacity.

Most notably there is now a "Low" and "Ideal" spec along with the usual Minimum and Recommended specs. Low is clearly for lower end systems but are using a deciated GPU instead of integrated graphics, whilst the Ideal specs are for those with higher-end systems who want to push Age of Empires IV to its abaolsute limits.

So with that let's jump right in and have a look at the updated Age of Empires 4 PC system requirements...

Age of Empires 4 Minimum system requirements

Age of Empires 4 Low system requirements

Age of Empires 4 Recommended system requirements

Age of Empires 4 Ideal system requirements

Age of Empires 4 requires at least a GTX 970 or RX 570 graphics card in order to meet the recommended system requirements. This should then be paired with either a Core i5-8400 or Ryzen 5 2600 processor as well as 16GB of RAM, which should then deliver 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution.

In order to play Age of Empires 4 at the minimum requirements you will need at least an Intel HD 520 or RX Vega 11 integrated GPU. The CPU required to meet the minimum specs is a Core i5-6300U or Ryzen 5 2400G. With this setup, your PC should then deliver around 30fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution.

Looking over the specs above, Age of Empires 4 will need around a 7 year old PC to play at its best.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Age of Empires 4 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Age of Empires 4 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Age of Empires 4 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

So many stupid questions?! Your's ego is very very small, so you brag about the strenght of your device..


Many have come to "brag" and many people have stronger devices than your's so they are quiet :)

Configurations are probably thought to fall somewhere near this imo:


-Minimum for 720p/768p low graphics,


-Low for 720p/768p/1080p low-medium graphics.


-Recommended for 1080p high graphics.


-Ideal for panoramic and 4K high graphics.


More or less.
