Can I Run SCARLET NEXUS On My Computer?

Despite its explosive visuals, SCARLET NEXUS is a relatively undemanding game, and most gaming PCs will be able to play it at a respectable FPS. The official minimum and recommended system requirements for SCARLET NEXUS are listed below. We’d generally advise assuming slightly higher specs are needed than the official specs stated by the publisher, just to be on the safe side.

If you don’t know how to look up the specs of your current PC to compare them against the system requirements, see our guide on how to look up your PC specs which will take you through it. If your current PC doesn’t quite have the power to run the game, at the foot of this page we’ve listed some self-build and pre-built PCs which definitely will.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play SCARLET NEXUS?

SCARLET NEXUS will be playable on the lowest settings at 1080p on one of our $500 self-builds for decent FPS. If you want to crank up the graphical options to the max, then we’d instead recommend a $800 self-build PC for 1080p resolution, or a $1,000 self-build PC for 1440p resolutions, and finally a $1,500 self-build is what you’ll want if you’re taking the resolution up to 4K.

If you don’t want to construct your own gaming PC, then a $500 pre-build will run SCARLET NEXUS no problem at 1080p on the lowest settings. For those higher settings at 1080p a pre-build for under $800 should do the job, with a $1,000 pre-built PC sufficing for 1440p gaming and a $1,500 pre-build if you want to play at 4K.
