Just Cause 3’s Minimum Specifications Are High

Open-world action game Just Cause 3 is out next week. Developer Avalanche Studios have put up the minimum and recommended PC configurations to play the game.

Minimum Specifications:

  • OS: Vista SP2, Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K, 3.3 GHz | AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3 GHz
  • Memory: 6GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) | AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB)

Recommended Specifications:

  • OS: Vista SP2, Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 (3GB) | AMD R9 290 (4GB)

In terms of hard drive space, you’ll need around 38.5GB free to download the game, which on install needs 54GB. If it’s anything like most of the high profile PC game releases we’ve seen this year, we aren’t expecting a whole lot of the game to come on disc – an affliction Batman: Arkham Knight, Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Mortal Kombat X suffered from.

As for the specifications themselves, we find them to be on the higher side, especially in terms of CPU requirements compared to other open-world games like Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Fallout 4, Grand Theft Auto V, and The Witcher 3. Whether it demands such a steep entry barrier on the platform that it’s the cheapest on is questionable.

However, Avalanche has been on point with its previous PC efforts such as Mad Max which scaled brilliantly on most machines. We’ll have to wait till December 1, the game’s release day to find out if the same holds true for Just Cause 3.
