The Elder Scrolls Online System Requirements Will Be Gentle

Bethesda have released a small statement about The Elder Scrolls Online System Requirements, although unfortunately not exact details

The game should be "playable on any PC or Mac purchased within the last 5 years"...

Bethesda do confirm that actual specs will be available closer to launch, but this is comforting none the less. Knowing Bethesda, they will want the game to look pretty, which means they are aiming for a very large range of graphics options - Something for all the family!

Don't forget, Beta signups are available now, with the beta start period yet to be announced. Make sure you come back and tell us if you get the lucky email!

A few points of note regarding the Elder Scrolls Online beta

1. You have to be 18 years or over

2. The Beta will be run in English, French and German

3. It is not confirmed that player character development will be carried over from Beta to the main game.

4. Character name reservation is not guaranteed from Beta to the main game

5. Mac users will also be invited into Beta

6. Certain Beta testers of The Elder Scrolls Online may be rewarded for their Beta assistance

Can't tell yet-no requirements. But if whatever Bethesda is saying is true, then you will be able to run the game.

They will send out beta invites sometime later in the year, just make sure you were honest in the beta registration and you will get in later in the year, they need more and more players after early beta tests. I did a lot of research.. lol But it's the same beta sign ups like Planetside 2.

Lol , i'd rather say it's vice versa. xD
Your GPU (although it isn't high-end one) is very good , and will be able to run games on high settings approximately 1.5 to 2 years with FPS not falling below 35. If I were you ,I would be concerned by the cpu state - it's quite old. Although it says my CPU is 31% more powerful than yours i still have problems with 100% core load (what o'course causes lags).

Like the title says man,requirements will be gentle (and not a slap in the face like most latest games)
It'll run on any PC is what they say.

Please don't go calling people "dicks" it's not the right way nor the GD way for communicating. If you Feel Jacobyoung is wrong please tell him and the rest of us why you think he is wrong although he is right and there really isn't a need to use that language.

In general, it will run on any PC bought in the last 5 years, sure you can still buy rubbish PC's, and TES Online will work on them!
