Can I Run Outriders On My Computer?

Outriders is an upcoming game scheduled for release on the 1st of April 2021. As a result, it has not been independently tested yet, but we do have the minimum and recommended requirements of the game below as provided by the publisher to look over.

Typically we advise taking any requirements given by a game developer/publisher with a pinch of salt: often you will need slightly more oomph in your machine than they suggest to play the game at the desired settings; however, as long as you factor this in they still give a good indication.

Have a look at our suggestions at the bottom of this article for what PC builds will get the game running on low and also max settings.

If you are at a loss as to what components are actually in your computer to compare against the minimum and recommend requirements, read our guide here on how to find these. WePC are putting together an online tool which will determine your PC’s ability to play any game, once this is done we’ll be updating all our systems requirements pages to make the process that much easier!

Outriders is set on an alien world that humans have attempted to colonize. A strange energy storm disrupted proceedings but also granted everyone on the planet strange superpowers.

What PC Do We Recommend To Play Outriders?

Unusually Square Enix have specified that its minimum settings are what is required to play the game at 720p, rather than the more standard 1080p. This means if you do want to run the game at 1920 x 1080 resolution on low settings you’re going to need a higher spec PC than what they suggest.

To play Outlanders at 1080p one of our $500 or $600 builds is your best bet. If you want to up the resolution and pus the setting to the max then going with a $1,500 build or higher is recommended.

If you don’t fancy putting together your own machine, then one of our suggested prebuilt PCs for less than $800 will play the game at 1080p on lower settings no problem. For higher resolutions and/or settings, we’d got with our recommended $1,500 pre-built PC.
