With Ghost of Tsushima finally making its way over to the PC platform, those looking to dive in for the first time or experience it again with more graphical fidelity will need to know the various system requirements.

The game is roughly four years old as of writing this, and it was a last-gen release, so you won't need the most modern computer to run it. But with all the improvements to the PC version, it's worth knowing exactly what you'll need to get optimal performance.

What are the minimum & recommended system specs?

Here are the game's official requirements according to the Steam page:

The Online Community Specialist for Nixxes Software, Julian Huijbregts, also released a PlayStation blog with a more comprehensive breakdown of what performance you can expect with what hardware (pictured below).

As you can see, if you're looking for a standard performance of 1080p @ 60 FPS, you won't need a beast of a machine. The game is also set to support DLSS3, FSR 3, and XeSS, so if you have a compatible card, you'll be able to squeeze even more performance out of it.

Do we know the download size?

While we know how much space is recommended for the game, we don't have an exact figure on the download size yet.

It's recommended you have 75 GB of storage space to install Ghost of Tsushima, so expect the actual download to be slightly smaller with compression taken into account.
