Can my computer play Apex Legends?

By Cliff Henjum March 1, 2019

In a surprise announcement, Respawn Entertainment and EA Games launched a free to play battle royale game called Apex Legends! It’s set in the Titanfall universe and (at least at time of launch) features 20 teams of 3 for a maximum of 60 players per round. Apex Legends has some cool features that help set it apart from other battle royale games like the ability to revive dead teammates and a unique class system that will enhance various playstyles. On top of these gameplay mechanics, Apex Legends has created an impressive communication system that enables squadmates to communicate quickly and precisely during the heat of battle that is currently unrivaled. The game’s aesthetic, pace of play, and gun mechanics feel like Blackops 4’s Blackout with many more mobility options due to the abilities from your specific class. However, despite looking more like Black Ops 4, its system requirements are actually closer to that of Fortnite and PUBG Lite.

Due to the smaller player count, and a smaller map compared to some of PUBG’s choices, the minimum system requirements for Apex Legends are much lower than PUBG or BO4. Whether you’re grapple-hooking with Pathfinder, or running through portals as Wraith, you’ll want a computer that’s above the minimum requirements so you can enjoy a playable framerate. In order to pass the minimum video card requirement, your PC will need at least a GeForce GT 640 or a Radeon HD 7700. In contrast to Fortnite, you will need a bit more RAM to get Apex Legends running - 6 GB as opposed to 4 GB. Your computer also needs a halfway decent CPU - something along the lines of a Core i3-6300 or AMD FX-4350. If your computer meets these requirements, you’ll be hot dropping on to drop ships and down to Skull Town in no time.

In order to run Apex Legends on High or Max settings, your computer needs to pass the recommended system requirements. There is a pretty big jump in overall computing power between the minimum and recommended requirements. For a CPU, your PC needs at least a Core i5-3570K or its AMD equivalent. The recommended video card brings the requirement closer to Black Ops 4 and further away from PUBG Lite. A whopping GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290 are the recommended video card models if you want to push back that view distance and up those texture details. The required RAM shouldn’t break the bank - only 8 GB is needed as opposed to the 16 GB that PUBG requires.

The plethora of unique changes and additions to the battle royale genre will more than likely keep Apex Legends in the conversation for a long time to come. It’s free to play, it has pretty low system requirements for a battle royale, and it actually had a pretty smooth launch which is more than a lot of these other copycat games can claim. If Apex Legends rolls out regular content updates without messing up the game’s core mechanics (looking at you Realm Royale), we anticipate that it remains in the top 3 most played battle royale games for 2019.
