No Man’s Sky released on PC today, but can your rig run it?

Here’s what you’ll need

Three days late to the party, PC players are finally able to explore the functionally-infinite universe of No Man’s Sky. Well, that is if their rigs are up to the task.

Ignoring that most people have some sort of issues with the PC version of No Man’s Sky right now, you need to make sure that your computer meets the minimum threshold to run the game. Now that its Steam page is up, we know what those specifications are.

The PC requirements to run No Man’s Sky are:

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
  • Processor: Intel Core i3
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: nVidia GTX 480, AMD Radeon 7870
  • Storage: 10GB

Hello Games didn’t list any recommended specs. Obviously, it’ll run more smoothly with a better processor and graphics card, especially given No Man’s Sky‘s procedural generation that can be quite taxing.
