These requirements appear to be roughly the same as those of the PC version of Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin. Given that the latter was primarily a last generation title, the hardware requirements for Dark Souls 3 are quite tame and anyone with a half-decent gaming rig should be able to breeze through the game running at its highest preset.

. The minimum supported GPUs merely have 1 GB of video memory, which is likely to be enough to run the game on moderate settings. In addition, the Intel i3 processor listed here is often used in budget builds. Meanwhile, a minimum of 8 GB of RAM is required to play the PC version of Dark Souls 3.

All in all, these PC system requirements are pretty modest, especially compared to other modern titles that have arrived on PC since the launch of the new consoles.
