Can your PC play Dragon Age: Inquisition

2 min read


Dragon Age: Inquisition will be out in about a month. It’s really getting close now and I can feel my RPG senses tingling. I will be playing it on new generation console, but I know many of you are grabbing it on PC. Luckily, the game probably won’t require you to upgrade your machine to play.


The PC version of the game supports use of an Xbox 360 controller. This is great for those who want to pretend their playing on Xbox but with better graphics. Okay, here are your PC requirements:


  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD quad core CPU @ 2.5 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 2.0 GHz
  • System RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics CARD: AMD Radeon HD 4870, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
  • Graphics Memory: 512 MB
  • Hard Drive: 26 GB
  • DirectX 10


  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD six core CPU @ 3.2 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 3.0 GHz
  • System RAM: 8 GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7870 or R9 270, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
  • Graphics Memory: 2 GB
  • Hard Drive: 26 GB
  • DirectX 11


I’m pretty impressed with the team from Bioware. Somehow, they took a gorgeous game and managed to make it work with only 4 GB of RAM or 512 MB of graphics memory. Of course, I’m sure it will look a whole lot better on a more powerful machine, but at least people with older PCs can get in on the Inquisition, too.

Remember, if you play on PC you’ll need to have Origin for online authentication when you install the game. Has Origin grown on you thanks to giving games away for free, or does it still feel like a punishment for choosing to play a game from EA?
