At the time of writing, the full Doom Eternal system requirements have not yet been revealed. The game’s Steam page does state that it requires a 64-bit processor and operating system, but that’s it. Thankfully, there are other ways of figuring out whether or not your PC can run Doom Eternal.

One of the most obvious reference points for the game’s required specifications would be Doom 2016. If you can’t run Doom 2016, you probably won’t be able to run Eternal. However, Doom Eternal has been designed around a newer engine — the idTech 7 engine — which helps the game make the most out of both low-end and high-end hardware. Given that Eternal will launch on the Nintendo Switch in addition to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s likely that it will run fine on older hardware.

Because of this, many among the gaming community believe that Doom Eternal will have relatively lightweight system requirements. In fact, most believe that the requirements are likely identical to Doom 2016, if not a bit lighter. Here’s the general consensus:

Doom Eternal Minimum System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 / AMD FX-8320
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB
  • RAM: 8GB
  • OS: Windows 8/10 64-bit
  • HDD: 65GB

Doom Eternal Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7 2400 / AMD FX-8320
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB / AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB
  • RAM: 8GB
  • OS: Windows 8/10 64-bit
  • HDD: 65GB

Again, these are not the official system requirements, as those have not yet been revealed. We’ll be sure to update this page once the actual required specifications have been released. Until then, think of things this way: If your PC can run Doom 2016, you’ll probably be able to run Doom Eternal just fine.
