Apex Legends system requirements

What sort of hardware will you need to play Apex Legends? (No, we don’t mean Titans.)

Apex Legends, the new battle royale game from Respawn and EA set in the Titanfall universe, leaked prior to its official announcement, for reasons we won’t speculate.

Ahem.

The peculiar thing about Apex Legends is that it doesn’t feature two of the most potent elements of Titanfall’s DNA: the brilliant wall running, or those titular Titans. But it does feature all of the other hallmarks of Respawn’s brilliant series, including slick movement, natty gunplay, and brilliant gadgets and gizmos.

What are the Apex Legends system requirements, though?

Minimum Apex Legends system requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX 4350 or Equivalent
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i3 6300 or Equivalent
  • Memory: 6GB – DDR3 @1333 RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ HD 7730
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GT 640
  • DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 22GB

Recommended Apex Legends system requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • Processor (AMD): Ryzen 5 CPU or Equivalent
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i5 3570K or Equivalent
  • Memory: 8GB – DDR3 @1333 RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ R9 290
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970
  • DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: Broadband Connection
  • Hard-drive space: 22GB

One final requirement: you’ll also need EA’s Origin launcher, as – like the previous Titanfall games, and huge swathes of EA’s catalogue – Apex Legends isn’t available from Steam. It’s becoming something of a trend.
