Outriders system requirements and PC features revealed

People Can Fly and Square Enix have revealed the Outriders system requirements for minimum, recommended, and ultra settings, as well as a number of PC-exclusive features.

As detailed in the above trailer, the studio is targeting at least 60fps regardless of your PC specs, meaning the minimum requirements are very modest. "Basically, if you bought a desktop from the last six years, you'll be fine," says People Can Fly.

That said, you've got all the usual graphics settings - texture and shadow quality, antialiasing, Vsync, etc. - to dial-up if you want the best-looking, best-performing experience and have the PC to handle it. You can also lock and unlock your frame rate and adjust your field-of-view.

Here's what you'll need to run Outriders at its three different default settings, though I should note upfront that the studio hasn't released CPU and GPU requirements for Ultra settings just yet.
