Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning PC System Requirements

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Remaster

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is almost here. The remaster of the famously troubled RPG lands on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 8.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning gives players a chance to dive into the world that has been revived by THQ Nordic. THQ Nordic picked up the game in the bankruptcy liquidation of its original developer in 2018. The game was plagued by issues and got a somewhat poor reception upon its original release due to technical issues and odd design choices.

The original intent of the game was to scale down an MMO into a singleplayer world. And though the game was a wonder to behold and had some very interesting gameplay, it failed to catch on. After major issues, the original plans to expand the IP into an MMO were scrapped and the company went up in smoke. But not before founder and former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling was implicated in a tax scheme with the state of Rhode Island investigating 38 Studios over a $75 million dollar loan that they failed to repay.

The remaster wanted to re-release the game without all of the messy legal trouble, and the resulting product looks pretty good. Check it out.

For anyone looking to grab the remaster on PC, we have the listing for what specifications are necessary to run the newly released RPG.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Minimum Requirements

  • Operating system – Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor – Intel or AMD Dual Core CPU 2.5 GHz
  • Memory – 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics – DirectX 10 Feature Level AMD or Nvidia card with 1 GB VRAM
  • DirectX – Version 11
  • Storage space – 40 GB

It looks like Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will run on just about anything. With the minimum specs listed at only 4GB of RAM and 1GB of VRAM on the GPU. Pretty much any system built in the last five years or so could easily handle that. Expect this kind of setup to run the game at 1080p on the lowest possible graphical settings. There won’t be an even 60 FPS though on really old hardware.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Recommended Requirements

  • Operating system – Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor – Intel or AMD Quad Core CPU 3 GHz
  • Memory – 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics – DirectX 10 Feature Level AMD or Nvidia card with 2 GB VRAM
  • DirectX – Version 11
  • Storage space – 40 GB

There’s a very good chance that if you have a relatively modern machine, you should have no trouble running the new remaster. Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is based on a somewhat aging game, so even with the redone visuals, it won’t be too hard to run. If you have a pretty beefy Intel or AMD CPU from the last few years, you will be fine with 1080p gaming.

It’s likely that if you really want to turn the details up though, you’re going to need a CPU and GPU from the last couple of generations at the oldest for this game. The listed specs are extremely vague and unhelpful though, as it basically just says a 3 GHz Quad-Core and any GPU capable of running DirectX 10. An AMD RX 560 and AMD FX-era processor could theoretically hit those marks, and there’s no way that these components could deliver maximum details at 1080p.

Be sure to check out your PC specs before you buy it though. If you’re unsure, you can always wait a couple of days for benchmarks with the game to drop after launch. There’s actually a very active community of YouTubers who benchmark newer games on older hardware. Once the game releases head over there and see if you can find someone testing your hardware if you’re not sure.
