This is What You Need to Play The Sims 4 – System Requirements

The Sims 4 Game

Considering that The Sims 3 was released way back 2009, it’s about time we got a successor. Fortunately, The Sims 4 is just around the corner and it’s beautiful. The game is so well-optimized that — surprisingly — you don’t need a state of the art PC to run it. Make the jump for the system requirements…

The fact that an overly powerful computer is not required will in no doubt lead some to speculate The Sims 4 will be offered on the PS4 and Xbox One, but it’s only for the PC, at least for the time being. To assist you in determining if your potentially outdated rig can handle it, EA has released the following minimum required specs:

  • OS: Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8, or Windows 8.1
  • PROCESSOR: 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 Dual-Core 4000+ or equivalent (For computers using built-in graphics chipsets, the game requires 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.0 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 or equivalent)
  • MEMORY: At least 2 GB RAM
  • HARD DRIVE: At least 9 GB of free space with at least 1 GB additional space for custom content and saved games
  • VIDEO CARD: 128 MB of Video RAM and support for Pixel Shader 3.0. Supported Video Cards: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or better, ATI Radeon X1300 or better, Intel GMA X4500 or better
  • SOUND CARD: DirectX 9.0c Compatible
  • DIRECTX: DirectX 9.0c compatible
  • INPUT: Keyboard and Mouse

Also needed is an Internet connection for product activation and a DVD ROM drive for installation only.

By the looks of things, unless your PC is from 2008 or earlier, you shouldn’t have too much to worry about meeting these system requirements. But one component you really need to check is your graphic card. The Sims 4 requires at least a 128 MB VRAM GPU that supports 3.0 shaders.
