Bethesda Confirms the Final PC Requirements for Doom Eternal

Watch 1-Hour of DOOM Eternal Gameplay from Quakecon 2019

With the upcoming launch of Doom Eternal a little over a week away, Bethesda has been working hard to ramp up the hype for this release. I mean, only last week they claimed that the game was so well optimised for the PC that (in theory) it could achieve around 1,000 FPS. Well, presuming that the hardware actually existed to achieve that.

So, with a claim like that, it sounded like the game might require some pretty hefty specifications. Well, shortly afterward, Bethesda released what was a provisional set of PC requirements. In a report via TechPowerUp, however, we now have our full and final (and much more detailed) list of exactly what you’re going to need to get this running at various levels of graphical settings and resolutions!

What Do We Think?

Well, as you can see from these specifications, Doom Eternal does (perhaps surprisingly) offer a remarkably huge range between its minimum and maximum requirements. What is pretty clear is that playing this game in its highest setting is going to require some stonkingly strong hardware.

When you consider though that this will happily run at 60 FPS with an Nvidia 1050 Ti (or AMD RX 470), then it seems pretty clear that this game has almost certainly had a lot of attention thrown at the PC release. Put simply, in gaming PC terms, we’re in both Godlike and potato country here and that’s great news for gamers!

Doom Eternal releases on March 20th!
