Warhammer 40000 Darktide is here and we are more than excited to play the game. But what do we do before getting the game, we check its system requirements.
So, in this post, we will be looking at the Warhammer 40000 Darktide System Requirements.
The word on the street is that it doesn’t require a very high-end gaming PC, and an average gaming PC should be able to pull it off.
Warhammer 40000 Darktide Overview
Warhammer 40000: Darktide is an action-adventure video game developed by Fatshark. The Xbox and Microsoft exclusive game is set in the Warhammer 40000 Universe and was released on November 30, 2022. The Xbox Series X/S version will be launched sometime later and there is no release date for it at the time of writing. The game is completely multiplayer and does not feature any single-player campaign.
The game follows a similar structure to Fatshark’s Warhammer: Vermintide 2, in which four players work together to fight waves of AI-controlled opponents. Instead of a pre-made cast of characters, the game features let players personalize their class, look, and gender. Human Veteran, Human Zealot, Ogryn, and Human Psyker are the four classes that are featured in the game.
Warhammer 40000 Darktide System Requirements
At first look, the requirements don’t look too demanding and are pretty basic. A mid-end gaming PC should be able to pull off the game. Firstly we will be looking at the Warhammer 40000 Darktide Minimum System Requirements and then jump over to the Recommended System Requirements for the game.
Warhammer 40000 Darktide Minimum System Requirements
|OS||Windows 10 (64-bit) / Windows 11 (64-bit)|
|CPU||Intel Core i5-6600 (3.30GHz)|
AMD Ryzen 2400G (3.6 GHz)
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 970|
AMD Radeon RX 570
As expected the Microsoft-exclusive games require you to have a Windows operating system running on 64-bit architecture. The minimum amount of RAM that you should have is the usual 8GB, which should not be a problem. The game, for its successful installation, will require you to have free storage of 50 GB on your hard disk. This of course goes without saying that if you install the game on an SSD, it will drastically shorten the load times, but that is not a necessity.
Now, coming to the main part, that is the CPU and the GPU. The game asks for an entry-level Intel Core i5-6600 or an AMD Ryzen 2400G. Both the CPUs are budget segment CPUs and they can play most of the big names that are there. For the GPU part, the game devs recommend either Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or an AMD Radeon RX 570, again something that a mid-range gaming PC should have. So the minimum system requirements for the game are very manageable and shouldn’t be a reason for worry.
Warhammer 40000 Darktide Recommended System Requirements
|OS||Windows 10 (64-bit) / Windows 11 (64-bit)|
|CPU|| Intel Core i7-9700K (3.70GHz)|
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (4.2GHz)
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060/RTX 2060|
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
Again, for Warhammer 40000 Darktide Recommended System Requirements, the operating system, DirectX version, and the required storage does not change. You will still require Windows 10 or 11 running on 64-bit architecture, which is equipped with the latest DirectX version and free space of 50GB on your SSD (preferably). For juicing out the best performance from the game, the devs recommend you have an Intel Core i7-9700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or anything better.
For the GPU part, the game asks for Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 2060, or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. These are some of the best graphics cards available in the market that are capable of running many of the top games at high settings.
Can I run Warhammer 40000 Darktide on high settings with 8GB of RAM?
The Warhammer 40000 Darktide Recommended System Requirements released by the devs require you to have at least 16GB of RAM if you wish to run the game at high settings. You can run the game at low or mid settings with 8GB of RAM.
Can Warhammer Darktide be played solo?
No, Warhammer 40000 Darktide is a 4 player multiplayer game. The game was built with co-op multiplayer in mind and it does not have any single-player campaign. Luckily the game supports local co-op as well so you can tag along with a bud or invite one and enjoy the terrific game.
What are the available classes in Warhammer 40000 Darktide?
There are four available classes in Warhammer 40000 Darktide, namely- Sharpshooter, Psykinetic, Preacher, and Skullbreaker. You can choose whichever class you like and build your character from scratch.
Can I run Warhammer Darktide on high settings using GeForce GTX 1060?
RTX 2090 supersedes the GTX 1060 by a big margin, but nonetheless, you should not shy away from trying to play the game at the highest possible setting with GTX 1060.
