Good news today for Halo Infinite fans, as the PC system requirements have been revealed. These fresh details come just days after 343 industries confirmed the game’s release date at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2021. The game is now due to release on December 8, 2021. If you’re wondering if your PC will be able to run Halo Infinite, we’ve got the system requirements below:
Halo Infinite PC System Requirements
Below is a list of minimum requirements to run Halo Infinite on PC:
- Processor – AMD FX-8370, or Intel i5-4440
- Memory – 8 GB RAM
- Graphics – AMD RX 570, or Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
- DirectX – v12
- Storage – minimum 50 GB free space on SSD
- 64-bit processor required
- OS – Windows 10 RS3 x64
That’s what you’ll need just to run Halo Infinite – but here’s the recommended requirements to get the best performance:
- Processor – AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, or Intel i7-9700k
- Memory – 16 GB RAM
- Graphics – Radeon RX 5700 XT, or Nvidia RTX 2070
- DirectX – v12
- Storage – 50 GB free SSD space
- 64-bit processor
- OS – Windows 10 19H2 x64
Going by the numbers, there’s a fairly high amount of power required to run Halo Infinite. However, the game is looking like it’ll be one of the most graphically advanced shooters on the market. Just last week, it was announced that the game will launch without co-op campaign, or co-op Forge mode, which is definitely a shame for fans of the series. However, the confirmation of a release date at long last was sure to sweeten any apprehension towards Infinite.
If you’re planning on playing Halo Infinite on Xbox, then of course you won’t need to worry about system requirements. The game will launch as expected on Xbox Series X|S, with a less sophisticated version also releasing on Xbox One. If you’re finding the wait until December 8 difficult, then you can catch up on the Halo story so far here.
