No Mans Sky Minimum System Requirements Revealed


   I thought this day would never come - Hello Games has released an official release date for No Man’s Sky. The monstrously ambitious procedurally generated space-farer will be launching on 21st June in North America, 22nd in Europe, and the 24th in the UK. Confirming what we’d previously heard, No Man’s Sky will be a full priced game, with a $60 / £40 price tag attached. That’s going to surprise a few people who had this pegged as an indie game that comes with an indie price tag.

   For those with even more cash to burn though, there’s also news of a suite of gorgeous looking special additions to tempt you to part with that hard-earned moolah. But before we chat about that, how about we take a look at the official No Man's Sky minimum system requirements...

No Man's Sky Minimum System Requirements


  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-530 2.9 GHz or AMD Athlon X4 730 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 480 or Radeon HD 6970
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection

It's early days for these system requirements, so they could be subject to change at anytime but they do give us a good ballpark of what to expect. Despite the massive universe, it looks as if No Man's Sky won't be too taxing from a CPU perspective, and a Core i3 processor or equivalent is all that's needed for minimum.
