Big, daft, inclusive game cements its place as being inclusive (also big, daft) by having very reasonable system requirements.
Fall Guys was one of the highlights of our E3 2019. Hell, it was one of the highlights of most people’s E3 last year. It was an even bigger highlight if you had a golden ticket to Devolver Digital’s trailer park party, and got to experience the game in the soft play area setup Mediatonic had assembled to show off their goofy video game.
We don’t know when Fall Guys will release, yet, though we have a feeling it might be relatively soon. Especially if these tweets from the Fall Guys Twitter account are anything to go by:

We’ve got Fall Guys in our “most anticipated games of 2020” list, incidentally, so we’re pretty sure it will launch this year, too. But if you needed any more of a clue that the game is approaching release, Mediatonic has today updated the game’s system requirements on Steam.
Once a developer starts announcing these sorts of things, it’s a sign the game is fairly far along in the process. They might be polishing and adding content for a while yet, but they’re reasonably sure the core of the game is not going to change by any substantial amount. (Also, if you’re a student of marketing, you’ll notice that the Fall Guys Twitter account has been ramping up its activity recently. That’s also a clue that a release announcement is coming.)
Anyway. Here are the Fall Guys system requirements, extracted from the above tweet and presented in a nice, Google-friendly format.
Minimum Fall Guys system requirements
- OS: Windows 10 64bit only
- Processor: Intel Core i5 or AMD equivalent
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7950
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 2 GB available space
- Additional Notes: Gamepad Recommended
That’s it. There are no “recommended” Fall Guys system requirements as yet. But have you seen it? It’s a colourful, low poly bundle of fun. It’s hardly Crysis. The minimum system requirements will probably do just fine.
