Each year, more and more players are checking out Apex Legends to see what all the hype is about. However, before doing that, PC players will need to know the game’s system requirements, to ensure Apex Legends runs smoothly.

System requirements detail the hardware players need in their PC to run Apex Legends successfully. The requirements are split up into two different sections, minimum and recommended. The minimum specs are exactly what they sound like, the bare minimum a PC needs to contain in order to boot up Apex Legends at a somewhat reasonable frame rate. The recommended specifications are what players need to play Apex at 1080p with medium to high settings and a consistent 60 frames-per-second framerate.

Below, fans can see both the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for Apex Legends in 2021.

Apex Legends system requirements

The official requirements come from EA’s website and haven’t been updated since the game’s launch. So, that means whatever players were rocking in their PC back in 2019 should still work in 2021. This also means that current cutting edge hardware isn’t required to run Apex Legends.

The minimum and recommended specs are both listed below.

Minimum requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz / AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • RAM: 6GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7730
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: Minimum 22 GB of free space

Recommended requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel i5 3570K or equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290
  • GPU RAM: 8GB
  • HARD DRIVE: Minimum 22 GB of free space

In the current PC parts market, some of the recommended pieces of hardware might be a little difficult to come by for players just entering the PC realm. However, none of the parts are considered modern by today’s standards, so players should have enough luck putting together a PC that meets the recommended requirements. That goes double for the minimum requirements.

All in all, Apex Legends should be accessible to most PC players in 2021. If you’re looking to jump in as a newcomer, here’s how to claim a free bundle to start.
