Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown System Requirements

Upcoming Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown by BANDAI NAMCO will be released next year, but thanks to an NVIDIA blog post, we now know not only the game’s system requirements but an estimate on system performance as well- at least with their own graphics solutions.

Overall, the minimum and recommended requirements appear to be quite reasonable. BANDAI NAMCO even went so far as to make note that the recommended requirements are representative of what is needed to run the game at the 1920×1080 resolution with max settings. NVIDIA’s own testing backs up those claims with the GeForce GTX 1060 offering a comfortable 100 FPS at 1920×1080, and 60 FPS at 2560×1440 resolutions. For 4K you will need a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or better which should offer a steady 60+ FPS.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core Intel Core i3-7100, or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Legacy GPU: GeForce GTX 750 Ti, or equivalent)
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions)
  • HDD: 60 GB free space
  • DirectX: Version 11

Recommended System Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-7500, or equivalent
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB, or equivalent, or higher
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions)
  • HDD: 60 GB free space
  • DirectX: Version 11

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will offer a host of settings options including Anti-Aliasing, Bloom, Effects, Motion Blur, Post Processing, Screen Space Reflections, Shadows, Resolution Scaling and the ability to uncap the framerate. BANDAI NAMCO also made sure to keep enthusiasts happy by offering settings for flight systems, controllers, flight sticks, keyboard and mouse, and key remapping. In effect, it appears to be a proper PC release rather than a straight console port, which should make flight simulation fans happy.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is available for pre-order on Steam and will release in February 2019.
