Here Are The Medium’s Massive PC System Requirements


Announced back in May and shown off again last weekThe Medium looks like an absolutely fantastic game. Announced as a console launch (read: timed) exclusive for the Xbox Series X, the game is also coming to PC at launch. While we didn’t have many details previously on the PC version, The Medium now has a Steam Page which includes the PC system requirements for the game.

  • MINIMUM:
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 10 (64bit version only)
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-6600 / AMD Ryzen™ 5 2500X
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: @1080p NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon™ R9 390X (or equivalent with 4 GB VRAM)
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 30 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible, headphones recommended
  • RECOMMENDED:
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 10 (64bit version only)
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-9600 / AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700X
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: @1080p NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti / Radeon™ RX Vega 56 | @4K NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070 / Radeon™ RX 5700 XT
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Storage: 30 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX compatible, headphones recommended
    • Additional Notes: NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2080 on 4K with ray tracing on

As you can see from the above, The Medium really is going to require something special from your PC build to run well going by these pc system requirements. Full HD alone will require a 1660Ti or Vega 56 for recommended specs, while the CPU comes in at a hefty Ryzen 7 3700X or i5-9600. You’re not going to get away with playing The Medium with old hardware. This also likely gives us a view at what we can begin expecting from other next-generation games from launch onwards, so maybe start looking at upgrading your rigs soon!

The Medium releases in Holiday 2020 for PC and Xbox Series X.
