Ghost of Tsushima system requirements


What are the Ghost of Tsushima system requirements? Sucker Punch finally revealed that its samurai stealth open-world game Ghost of Tsushima is making its way to PC. Based on what we’ve seen from other PS5 ports, we have a good idea of where the system requirements may land.

We’re not expecting Ghost of Tsushima to demand the best graphics card, unless you’re aiming for 4K gameplay at 60fps. Despite the recent confirmation from Nvidia that the GTX line of GPUs is out of production, we still see these Pascal GPUs featuring as the bare minimum you’ll need to start playing.

Here are our Ghost of Tsushima system requirement predictions:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 or later Windows 10 or later
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070
AMD Radeon RX 6800
CPU Intel Core i3 8100
AMD Ryzen 1300X
Intel Core i7 9700
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Storage SSD required SSD required

We expect the Ghost of Tsushima minimum requirements to ask for an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon 5500 XT alongside an Intel Core i3 8100 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X. You can also expect 16GB of RAM to sit as the requirement across all performance levels.

With the above specs, you should be able to get 30fps at 1080 on the lowest global presets, with upscaling tech like AMD FSR active.

For the Ghost of Tsushima recommended specs, we expect you’ll need similar hardware to that which is being demanded in the Horizon Forbidden West system requirements.

You’ll need an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 GPU paired with an Intel Core i7 9700 or AMD Ryzen 3700X CPU. These specs should net you 60fps at 1080p or 1440p, depending on which gaming monitor you use.

Given that there were a few years between the release of Ghost of Tsushima and Horizon Forbidden West, we wouldn’t be surprised if overall the system requirements were lower for Sucker Punch’s open-world stealth adventure.

We expect the Ghost of Tsushima download size to sit at around 80GB, this is due to the inflation sometimes seen between the PS5 versions of a game and their PC ports. Horizon Forbidden West picked up an additional 40GB+  in size but started at a much higher base download of 100GB.

The Director’s Cut of Ghost of Tsushima is around 60GB on PS5, so expecting an extra 20GB for the PC port seems reasonable. We also expect one of the best SSDs for gaming to be recommended at all levels, but the game may still run and download on a traditional HDD, just with some performance compromises.

We’re also expecting Ghost of Tsushima to be Steam Deck compatible based on Sucker Punch’s comments about optimization for portable devices.
