With the upcoming release of Streets of Tarkov, the biggest Escape From Tarkov map to date, there’s never been a better time to get into Battlestate Games’ nitty gritty shooter. While the game certainly runs buttery smooth on the best gaming rigs, you’ll be surprised at how forgiving the Escape From Tarkov system requirements actually are.
That’s because you can technically play Escape From Tarkov on lower end systems. While we wouldn’t recommend it – especially since the game is still in beta and can be taxing on components – you can play the game without any major problems.
Of course, Tarkov is all about gunplay – so if you’re looking to maximise the time spent in raids, you’re probably going to want to play this with the recommended specs if you can get away with it. We’ve found you tend to load in quicker if the game is saved on an SSD, rather than an HDD, and those with better specs tend to have a stable framerate – even when playing the recently added Escape From Tarkov maps.
With that in mind then, here are the Escape From Tarkov system requirements:
|CPU||Dual-core processor 2.4Ghz (Intel Core 2 Duo, i3)
2.6Hz (AMD Athlon, Phenom II)
|Quad-core processor 3.2GHz (Intel i5, i7)
3.6GhZ (AMD FX, Athlon)
|GPU||DX11 compatible graphics card||DX11 compatible graphics card|
