Following the confirmation that FIFA 23 will be the next-gen version on PC, publisher Electronic Arts has now revealed the minimum and recommended specs. There were some concerns that the shift to next gen would drastically increase the game’s PC requirements. However, most mid-range rigs should have no problem running FIFA 23.
The minimum requirements are Windows 10/11, an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 or equivalent, 8 GB RAM, an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti or equivalent, and 100 GB storage space. Although these are a jump from last year’s requirements, they are still relatively low. Most PC gamers should have no problem meeting them. The necessary storage space may arguably be the biggest hurdle.
The recommended PC specs for FIFA 23 are Windows 10/11, AMD Ryzen 7 2700x or equivalent, 12 GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 or equivalent, and 100 GB storage space. These are a fair bit more demanding than the minimum requirements. Those with older PCs may struggle to meet the CPU requirements, as CPUs like the Ryzen 7 are often not compatible with older motherboards. Even so, these requirements should only be required to play the game on higher settings. As long as you meet the minimum requirements, FIFA 23 should run just fine.
Not too demanding
In addition to the revealed specs, FIFA‘s Steam page has confirmed the Ultimate Edition. This premium version comes bundled with 4,600 FIFA Points, a FUT Hero Player Item, early access, and various other Ultimate Team goodies. The regular edition is $69.99 USD on Steam, and the Ultimate Edition is $89.99 USD.
A common reason for sports game developers to not port the next-gen version to PC is the fear of users missing out. Sports games tend to attract a more casual audience than most other PC games, especially for players with less capable machines. Even so, the minimum requirements for FIFA 23 are low enough that this shouldn’t be a problem.
