Thanks to a listing on Origin, Mass Effect: Andromeda fans who are looking forward to playing BioWare‘s forthcoming science fiction shooter on PC are now able to determine exactly what kind of hardware will be required to run the game on their respective rigs, as the minimum and maximum specifications for the platform have now officially been revealed. In regards to the listing, it seems as if PCs on the low end of the scale won’t have too much of a demanding experience, while higher end rigs will, of course, require much better specs.

As far as the minimum requirements for Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s are concerned, PC fans are only being called to have a 2 GB GTX 660 or Radeon 7850 to be paired with an i5-3570 or FX-6350. Those who want a more impressive experience, however, will need to heed the recommended requirements of having at least a GTX 1060 or RX 480 with an i7-4790 or FX-8350. For those interested, the full PC specs for Mass Effect: Andromeda can be found below.

Although it’s good that BioWare is making the PC specs for Mass Effect: Andromeda available well ahead of the game’s release date, neither the studio nor the title’s publisher Electronic Arts haveĀ  declared the level of quality, frame rate, or resolution the hardware will reach. While other recently released titles such as For Honor can reach 1080p, for instance, it’s safe to presume that Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s PC players are going to want to experience much higher resolutions.

While there’s still a few weeks to go before Mass Effect: Andromeda fans can get their hands on a copy of the game, a multiplayer beta has been scheduled to be available before the full release goes live. With this being the case, PC fans will likely be able to get a better idea of how Andromeda will run on the platform before the game comes out next month.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release on March 21, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
