Mass Effect: Andromeda’s recommended PC requirements will offer you 1080p gameplay at 30fps, on the ‘High’ graphics preset.
We’ve known the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Mass Effect: Andromeda for a while now.
The recommended specs, which ask for a Core i7-4790, 16GB of ram, and a GTX 1060, are actually designed for a 1080p resolution and 30 frames-per-second. These specs will get you running the game on the ‘High’ settings preset.
That’s according to the Andromeda’s page on EA’s support site. The page mentions the target resolution and frame-rate under “predicted performance.”
Andromeda supports 4K resolutions natively, and will come with a decent set of graphics options to play with. BioWare also revealed settings can go up to ‘Ultra’.
This will no doubt be concerning for many PC players, a lot of whom prefer to target 60 frames-per-second at minimum. While a stable 30fps is certainly very playable, many would rather prioritise performance over visuals.
The specs above don’t necessarily mean PC players won’t be able to that in this case, but it does make us wonder what kind of specs we’re going to need for 1080p/60fps on ‘High’ or even ‘Ultra’.
All will become clear when the game goes live for Origin Access members, which is expected on March 16.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is out March 21 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
