Age of Empires 4 system requirements: Can your PC run it?
Can your PC run Age of Empires 4?
Age of Empires 4 is gaining traction as we head toward the expected October 28, 2021 release date, and many of you might be wondering whether or not it's time to upgrade or buy a new PC to coincide with the game's release. Following an Age of Empires 4 developer interview, we can say that the game is built to run on a wide range of performance hardware.
When asked about system requirements and how powerful a system is required to run Age of Empires 4, World's Edge Senior Executive Producer Michael Mann explained that early on in the development process, Relic Entertainment was presented with a list of hardware that the Age of Empires community and fanbase use. Mann continues:
That's great news for anyone who isn't looking to upgrade their PC anytime soon. And now that we have a list of minimum PC system requirements, we can see that you'll need at least an Intel Core i5-6300U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and integrated Intel HD 520 graphics.
As always, the best graphics card options out there will guarantee you can get the most out of the upcoming RTS game. The last thing you want is a game that's chugging along while you attempt to control units and micromanage your economy.
