LawBreakers system requirements

It’s like a mash up of Overwatch and those anti-gravity bits in Borderlands: The Pre Sequel, but what are the LawBreakers system requirements?

LawBreakers is Cliff Bleszinski’s – or Cliffy B, to his mates – newest video game, a class-based competitive shooter with gravity-defying mechanics. It was originally going to be free to play, until it wasn’t. It also looks a bit different to when we first saw it, during the original Project BlueStreak reveal way back in August 2015.

It also recently went through an open beta phase a couple of weekends ago and is, for all intents and purposes, probably ready for its August 9 release date. So why, then, following lengthy development and a public beta phase, do the LawBreakers system requirements still have caveats on them?

Minimum LawBreakers system requirements

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU QX6850/AMD A8-3870k (Quad Core CPU’s)
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 660, AMD Radeon 7870
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 35 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Minimum specs listed are based on pre-alpha game build and subject to change.

Recommended LawBreakers system requirements

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 -4790
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 970, AMD Radeon R9 290
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 35 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Recommended specs optimized for 90FPS. With a high end card like a Nvidia GTX 980 Ti the game should run at 144hz.

We don’t know why the caveats are there, to be honest – especially when Boss Key are going into the sort of specific detail around which Nvidia graphics cards exactly will be capable of running the game at 144Hz – but it’s probably fair to assume that those numbers are the right ones by this late stage. They might just be reserving the right to change their mind in case of any performance issues around launch.

In any case, the launch of LawBreakers is very nearly upon us, and you (mostly) have a good idea of what PC you’ll need to run it.
