The Sims 4 system requirements revealed

The Sims 4 is currently scheduled to launch in just a couple of months now, and the devs have released the minimum system requirements for the game, so you can see if your PC will be able to run it.  The Sims has never been a resource hog, and the 4 game won’t be any different in that respect.

You’ll only need a 1.8GHz dual core processor and 2GB RAM to get it up and running on your system.  These are only the minimum system requirements, so we still have to wait on EA to release the spec requirements to have the game look it’s best.

  • MEMORY: At least 2 GB RAM
