What Are The Sniper Elite 5 System Requirements?

The latest instalment in Rebellion's hit third-person-shooter series, Sniper Elite 5, is releasing at the end of the month. With it comes a fresh set of WWII levels for you to sneak, shoot and snipe your way through as you take out your various targets.

For PC players, however, there is one extra target for them to take into consideration and it comes before they can even play the game. The dreaded system requirements. Here's what you'll need.

What Are The System Requirements for Sniper Elite 5?

Of the two storefronts, the Epic Game Store listing for Sniper Elite 5 provides the most detailed look at what you'll need to best explore the beautiful scenery of WWII France.

A list of system Requirements from the Epic Game Store page. Only available on Windows devices, the minimum requirements are Windows 10 or above for its OS, an Intel core I3-8100 or equivalent CPU, 8GB of Ram and a GTX 1060, RX550 or equivalent GPU of at least 4GB.

Only the minimum system requirements are currently listed on both the Epic and Steam pages - which is strange this close to launch - but it is clear that the game will require at least the following to be playable on PC:

  • OS: Windows 10 or above
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-8100 or equivalent
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060, AMD RX550 or equivalent DirectX12 GPU with at least 4GB of VRAM

Storage space isn't listed for either of the storefronts as of writing but according to Rebellion's shop listing for Sniper Elite 5, the game is expected to require around 85GB of space in total which is a large leap from Sniper Elite 4 which only required around 50GB total.

This will of course run much better with an SSD as opposed to a standard mechanical HDD.

So, if you're interested in picking up Sniper Elite 5 on PC, be sure to check your specifications against the listed requirements to see what performance you can expect from the game.

While refund processes are in place on both the Epic Game Store and Steam, it's the last thing you want to be dealing with when the game releases!
