Armored Core 6’s PC Requirements Have Been Revealed

Get in the gaming PC!

FromSoftware has revealed (via Steam) the PC hardware requirements for its looming new release, Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, giving keen players an idea of the kind of rig they’ll need to be packing to comfortably play the game.

All told, it looks fairly approachable for most folks’ equipment, asking for a reasonable (well, compared to other recent releases) 60GB of storage space, 12GB of RAM and some more basic, legacy CPU and GPU options at the Minimum spec. On the Recommended front, it’s still not much worse, asking for a NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB, Radeon RX 590 or equivalent along with the same RAM recommendation.

Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K | Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X | AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650, 4 GB or AMD Radeon RX 480, 4 GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 60 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Windows Compatible Audio Device

We recently had the chance to check out a few hours of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon for ourselves and came away suitably impressed, saying “It was burned into my brain for days after playing, my mind constantly trying to process its esoteric story and deeply layered combat and mech customisation. During my time with the team, it was noted that FromSoftware felt as if the ten-year gap between titles came down to the hardware not being quite ready for its true vision of Armored Core. With its 4K, 60FPS fidelity, decade of gameplay lessons learnt, and our own world teetering on the edge of an AI disaster itself, it seems like no better time for these slumbering giants to wage war once more.

Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon releases on August 25, 2023. Amazon has pre-orders for the Day 1 Edition for $84.99 with free shipping.
