Here's what your PC needs to run Doom Eternal

We're Doomed.

If you've been wondering if your PC rig is going to cope with the demands of Doom Eternal, wonder no more: developer id Software has finally revealed the shooter's recommended and minimum specs.

The specs - which were made available on the Steam page (thanks, GamesRadar+) - suggest you'll need a pretty robust set-up to get the best out of the frantic FPS. Here, take a look for yourself:

Doom Eternal Minimum PC Specs

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7/64-Bit Windows 10

Doom Eternal Recommended PC Specs

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K or better, or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X or better

Not long to go now - Doom Eternal is out on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 20th March, 2020. The Nintendo Switch version is expected to release later this year.

"Overall, I'm excited about this one," John Linneman said on Digital Foundry when he went hands-on. "There's progression in all areas without taking anything away from what made Doom 2016 so special. In fact, it's both surprising and gratifying to see id push the structure of the game forward as much as it has here. Yes, the id Tech 7 revamp delivers exceptional results - particularly in terms of sheer detail - but coupling this with a much wider scope makes this feel much more like an actual sequel.

"Obviously, there are still many questions to answer, like how the current-gen consoles cope with the game, especially the Xbox One S. As things stand though, this preview of one of my most eagerly awaited games of the year did not disappoint - and I can't wait to see more."
