Dragon's Dogma 2 PC Specs & Requirements
 

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the upcoming sequel to the popular previous title Dragon’s Dogma, and is set to be released on 22nd March 2024.

Developed and published by Capcom, the game is a single-player, narrative-driven action-RPG that challenges the players to choose their own experience. On their journey, players will be joined by Pawns, “mysterious otherworldly beings, in an adventure so unique you will feel as if accompanied by other players while on your own adventure.”

Capcom says all of these elements are elevated further through physics technology, artificial intelligence (AI) and the latest in graphics, to create a truly immersive fantasy world.

As with any modern game release, knowing the system requirements necessary to run the game at optimal settings is vital for having an enjoyable gameplay experience. In this article, we’ll explore the PC specs required to run Dragon’s Dogma 2, as well as provide recommendations for those looking to upgrade their current setup. 

So, read on to discover what hardware you will need to immerse yourself in this thrilling fantasy world.

 

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Minimum Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 10600 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
  • Storage: No official size mentioned, but likely close to 100GB

To get Dragon’s Dogma 2 up and running at 1080p resolution, with most settings on low but hitting a decent 30 FPS, Capcom says you don't need a particularly powerful PC. 

These specs are very typical of a lot of modern releases. Both the CPU and GPU options are a good few generations old now so most gaming PCs made within the last 5 or so years should be able to handle getting the game up and running.

One area your system may be lacking, however, is the storage space required to install the game. Even though Capcom hasn’t revealed the official file size, using similar modern titles we can estimate that it’ll likely fall in the 100GB range. With a game this substantial in size, consider upgrading your system with an SSD for faster load times, even if it's a smaller one.

If your PC just meets these specifications, however, you will need to be content with the lowest settings. You’ll only be able to play at around 1080p at 30 FPS with pretty much all the settings on low, which is fine if you’re playing on a small monitor, but if you’re trying to play on a larger monitor or even a TV, it’s not going to look great.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Ignition Intel Core i5 RTX 3050 Gaming PC.

As the minimum specs listed are showing their age now, anything from the last 5 years will surpass it and so that’s the case with this PC.

It houses much newer components in the form of the Nvidia RTX 3050 GPU and the Intel i5 12400F. Both parts are some of the best entry-level options on the market and offer excellent value for money for those looking for a more budget system that will still allow for moderate gaming.

It also comes stocked with the minimum requirement for RAM at 16GB, plus a huge 1TB SSD to store the game on giving you more than enough space for a few others too.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Recommended Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-10700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 or AMD Radeon RX 6700
  • Storage: No official size mentioned, but likely close to 100GB

According to Capcom, systems that fall within these recommended specifications will provide a solid gameplay experience at at least 1440p, maintaining framerates at a smooth 60FPS.

These recommended specs aren’t too much of a jump from the minimum requirements either, with some of the suggested components being roughly 5 years old. Although the upgrade in GPU does bring new features such as DLSS technology and the option for ray tracing via the Nvidia RTX graphics card.

However, they are a couple of generations old now and can be hard to get your hands on, so will likely not be the best option for value for money and you should instead look to newer parts.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Evolution AMD Ryzen 5 RX 7600 Gaming PC.

Just as with our PC suggestion for the minimum specs, this PC features much more recent parts, upgrading the CPU to an AMD Ryzen 5 5600 and the GPU to an AMD RX 7600. The combination of these newer parts means more future-proofing alongside a top-tier 1440p experience.

Capcom may not have officially stated whether or not Dragon’s Dogma 2 will support AMD’s FSR technology at launch, but with it implementing Nvidia’s DLSS for the first time with this game, we can likely assume that the AMD alternative will be implemented too. So don’t worry about missing out if you choose a system that features an AMD GPU.

What do you need to play Dragon’s Dogma 2 at higher resolutions?

Capcom hasn’t released official high-resolution specs, but to enjoy a game like Dragon’s Dogma 2 at 4K, all while having graphical settings on high, these are the specs we think your system will need to hit at the very minimum.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x or Intel i5 11600k
  • GPU: AMD RX 6800 XT or Nvidia RTX 3080
  • Storage Space: No official size mentioned, but likely close to 100GB
  • RAM: 16 GB

Like the other requirement lists, these components are also not of the most current generation. So, to hit these specs without spending money on out-of-date parts, consider a system like the Chilblast Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 4070 Gaming PC.

This Chillblast PC features the Intel Core i5 13500 processor, which offers excellent gaming performance and multitasking capabilities. Paired with the Nvidia RTX 4070, you can expect smooth gameplay at 4K at high settings in most games.

Plus, with full support for DLSS, it can drive up frame rates in supported games even more, and it even has some impressive ray-tracing support in compatible games

It even comes with a 1TB SSD which is ample room for your game library, plus a solid 16GB of high-speed memory.

Conclusion

Dragon’s Dogma 2’s various system requirements provide options for all budgets. While meeting the minimum requirements will allow you to play the game smoothly, upgrading to a more powerful Chillblast PC will enhance your gaming experience, especially if you aim to play at higher resolutions and settings.
