System requirements | Pillars of Eternity Pillars of Eternity Guide

System requirements of Pillars of Eternity are not too high. Still, they are not as low as you would expect of a top-down RPG and a two-dimensional game world. To launch Pillars of Eternity, you only require a low-performance Intel Core i3 CPU, although it is advisable that you own something better, if you want to maintain appropriate performance. The same goes for the GPU and RAM (Pillars of Eternity requires, at least, 4GB RAM, but you should have, at least, 8GB RAM). While preparing this guide, we have not experienced any major problems with stability, although the framerate discernibly dropped, in larger locations.
