PC System Analysis For Civilization VI Requirements
Civilization 6 is built using a new game engine and we expect will require a modern mid range PC to run at 1080p with good frame rates at high graphics settings. Civ 6 will require a more powerful processor for the later stages of the game, an Intel i5-2500 or an AMD FX-8150 for recommended. We expect a recommended RAM requirement of 8GB system memory and the graphics card should be at least a GTX 750 Ti or HD 7850, to enjoy the cinematics and in game animations.
