What are the minimum / recommended specs for Grounded on PC?
The bare minimum
Obsidian Entertainment is bringing Grounded to Early Access and Game Preview, so we now have at least the minimum required specifications to run Grounded on your gaming PC safely. Grounded's new survival game certainly isn't a demanding title at its base. Still, players will have to make some concessions to get Grounded to run reliably with this system, notably to things like resolution, frame rate, and draw distance (how far away you can see things).
According to Grounded's Steam page, the minimum required specs include:
- An Intel Core i3-3225 or AMD equivalent
- An NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti or AMD equivalent
- 4GB of RAM
- 8GB of available storage
- A 64-bit version of Windows 10, 8, or 7 (SP1).
Grounded at its greatest
You may not need the most powerful rig to run Grounded, but players who want to capture all the wonderful detail that Obsidian Entertainment has poured into their newest passion project, or ensure they're always able to react quickly to emerging threats, will want to put a few upgrades into their computer first. You still won't need a supercomputer, but the system outlined below is a capable machine that can run many modern games well, including Grounded.
To upgrade your computer to get the best out of Grounded, we recommend:
- Intel Core i5-9600K (opens in new tab) ($195 at Amazon) or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (opens in new tab) ($155 at Amazon).
- MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 Super (opens in new tab) ($260 at Amazon).
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (opens in new tab) ($74 at Amazon).
- Windows 10 Home (64-bit) (opens in new tab) ($99 at Amazon).
It's a big(ger) world out there.
Obsidian Entertainment makes their exclusive debut on Xbox One and PC with Grounded, a unique survival experience that makes all of your problems much, much bigger. Join your friends as you're shrunk down to the size of an ant, forced to survive in a dangerous backyard.
