Can I Run Train Sim World 2 On My Computer?

Train Sim World 2 has fairly impressive graphics for a sim game, but is still only moderately demanding – the majority of gaming PCs will be able to play it at 1080p on the lower graphical settings at the very least, though if you want to enjoy higher graphical fidelity or play on higher resolutions then you will need something with a bit of power. The official minimum and recommended system requirements are listed below, though, as ever, we advise adding a bit more on in each case to be on the safe side.

If you aren’t sure how to look up the specifications of your PC to check against either set of requirements, have a look at our how to look up your PC specs guide.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Train Sim World 2?

Train Sim World 2 will run at a decent Frames Per Second, at 1080p, on the lowest settings with a $600 self-build gaming PC. If you want to turn the graphics up to their maximum however, then a $1,000 self-build gaming PC is what you’ll require. Beyond this, a $1,500 self-build gaming PC will be needed for 1440p resolution and most likely a $2,000 self-build PC for playing the game at 4K.

If building a PC isn’t for you, then a pre-built gaming PC for under $800 will run the game on the lower settings at 1080p without any issue. High graphical presets will need a $1,000 pre-built gaming PC or the like for 1080p, a $1,500 pre-build will be needed for 1440p gaming, and a $2,000 pre-build will most likely be required for gaming at 4K resolution.
