That Ultra setting lists the hardware it takes to run Outriders at 4K and 60 fps. The rest of the specs are below, but you’ll be after an i7-10700K / Ryzen 7 3700X on the CPU side of things to max everything out. The low preset should be manageable for most players: to run it at 720p and 60 fps, you’ll just need a GTX 750Ti / R9 270x, 8GB RAM, and a decent CPU made in the last eight years.

 Without further ado, here are system requirements in all their detail: 

Minimum requirements for Outriders | Low preset (720p, 60fps)   CPU: Intel i5-3470 / AMD FX-8350   Memory: 8GB   GPU: GeForce GTX 750Ti / Radeon R9 270x   DirectX: 11   Storage: 70GB  Recommended specs for Outriders | High preset (1080p, 60fps)   CPU: Intel i7-7700 / AMD Ryzen 5 2600X   Memory: 16GB   GPU: GeForce GTX 1070 8GB / Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB   DirectX: 12   Storage: 70GB   Ultra requirements for Outriders | (2160p, 60fps)   CPU: Intel i7-10700K / Ryzen 7 3700X   Memory: 16GB   GPU: GeForce RTX 3080 10GB / Radeon RX 6800XT   DirectX: 12   Storage: 70GB 

If you can run it, and are keen to jump into the game the moment it launches on April 1, here are the Outriders unlock times per region. If you're wondering about builds, here are the best Trickster builds in Outriders.

Based on the demo, Outriders is in a pretty good place. “A generic-looking bunch of sci-fi supersoldiers darting between cover might not scream Next Big Thing in 2021,” Andi wrote, “but it's the stuff they're capable of once you start tinkering with builds and see the crazier end of the loot spectrum that makes Outriders one to watch.
