by | Last updated Feb 1, 2024

Despite sad news of Lost Ark’s delay to 2022, the game is still on the way and we even have a beta date set. As such, it’s time to start getting ready for the game and, most importantly, making sure you can run it! Here are the Lost Ark system requirements. 

Lost Ark System Requirements

You don’t need a powerful machine to run Lost Ark. The game is a few years old now, and even then, it doesn’t feature demanding graphics or very complicated processes and animations. 

It’s possible to run the game on a weak PC that is quite a few years old, with the minimum being an i3 or Ryzen 3 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a graphics card equivalent of an Nvidia GeForce 460. You can check out the full minimum requirements below:
