Squadron 42 Mark Hamill

Squadron 42 PC minimum requirements revealed and list 16GB of RAM, new teaser trailer released

Cloud Imperium has revealed the official PC minimum requirements for Squadron 42; the single-player portion of Star Citizen. According to the specs, PC gamers will need at least 16GB of RAM. Yeap, this is the minimum RAM requirement.

We don’t know whether the game will lock out those with less RAM like previous Call of Duty titles did in the past. And while Squadron 42 won’t be out anytime soon, these RAM requirements feel a bit exaggerated (especially for a single-player game).

But anyway, apart from these high RAM requirements, PC gamers will also need a quad-core CPU, a DX11 graphics card and a 64-bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 10.

Here are the full PC minimum requirements for Squadron 42:

Field – Requirement
OS: Windows 7 (64bit) with Service Pack 1, Windows 8 (64bit), Windows 10 – Anniversary Update (64bit)
GPU: DirectX 11 Graphics Card with 2GB RAM (4GB strongly recommended)
CPU: Quad Core CPU
RAM: 16GB+
Drive: SSD strongly recommended

Furthermore, Cloud Imperium and IGN have shared a new teaser trailer for Squadron 42, featuring Mark Hamill.
