Crackdown 3 System Requirements – Can My PC Run Crackdown 3?

Crackdown 3 is due to release on Xbox One and Windows 10 in 2019, and today, Microsoft has confirmed the minimum and recommended Crackdown 3 system requirements. Read on to find out exactly what kind of rig you’ll need to play Crackdown 3, and to answer that all-important question: Can my PC run Crackdown 3?

Crackdown 3 System Requirements – Minimum Requirements to Run Crackdown 3

You’ll be glad to know that the minimum requirements to run Crackdown 3 on PC are not too intensive. Sure, everything listed below isn’t low-end, but most people with a middling PC should run the game okay. Just bear in mind that it perhaps won’t be on par with its console brother when played in minimum specs. The following specifications are from Microsoft’s official Crackdown 3 page.

  • OS: Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher (64-bit)
  • CPU:
    • AMD: AMD FX-6300
    • Intel: Intel Core i5 3470
  • GPU:
    • AMD: Radeon R7 260X
    • NVIDIA: Geforce 750 Ti
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM, 2 GB VRAM
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 API, with Hardware Feature Level 11

Crackdown 3 System Requirements – Recommended Requirements to Run Crackdown 3

Naturally, those of us wishing to get the most out of Crackdown 3 on PC will be wanting to pay attention to these recommended system requirements. As these specifications will likely mean you will be able to play the game on highest settings with no issues, of course, they are beefier than the minimum requirements. Surprisingly, however, the difference between recommended and minimum isn’t too large. Despite this, both the GPU and CPU will require a solid upgrade when compared to the minimum PC requirements.

  • OS: Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher (64-bit)
  • CPU:
    • AMD: AMD FX-8350
    • Intel: Intel Core i5 4690
  • GPU:
    • AMD: Radeon R9 290X or Radeon RX 480
    • NVIDIA: Geforce 970 or Geforce 1060
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM, 4 GB VRAM
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 API, with Hardware Feature Level 11

Unlike many of its contemporaries, Crackdown 3 is not a particularly processor-heavy game. Most modern titles will ask you to get hold of an Intel Core i7 for recommended, so a high-end Core i5 doesn’t seem too much.
