Light No Fire PC Specs & Requirements

Announced at The Game Awards 2023, Light No Fire is the highly anticipated upcoming multiplayer adventure survival game from the makers of No Man’s Sky.

Published by Hello Games, Light No Fire lets players step into a “fantasy planet the size of Earth” where they can explore, build and survive with others in an endless sandbox world rich with lore and adventure.

There is currently no official release date or official specifications for the game, but, given the connection with No Man's Sky and the vastness of the in-game world, we can make some educated guesses on what the hardware requirements might be.

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 Light No Fire, 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 expansive world.

Light No Fire Minimum Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i3
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB, AMD RX 470 4GB, Intel UHD graphics 630
  • Storage: 15 GB available space

As mentioned before, these are the current minimum requirements for Hello Games’ previous title No Man’s Sky. Using these, we can build on what Light No Fire might require. They are pretty barebones, but are likely the most accurate list of specs after many years of updates and optimisations.

Using a system with specifications similar to these will likely get Light No Fire running at 1080p, but most settings will have to be on low and the frame rate will likely be less than desirable.

There is no specific Intel i3 CPU mentioned but we can assume it’s likely an older entry-level chip in line with the rest of the specs. Both the CPU and GPU options are a good few generations old now so most gaming PCs made within the last 8 or so years (give or take due to Light No Fire being a more modern title) should be able to handle getting the game up and running.

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 25 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 i3 GTX 1650 Gaming PC.

As the minimum specs listed are showing their age now, and we assume Light No Fire will only suggest components a few years younger, 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 GTX 1650 GPU and the Intel i3 12100. 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 double the minimum requirement for RAM at 16GB, plus a huge 1TB SSD to store the game, giving you more than enough space for a heap of others too.

Light No Fire Recommended Requirements 

  • Processor: Intel Core i5
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
  • Storage: 15 GB available space

Interestingly, there are also no official recommended requirements by Hello Games for No Man’s Sky. So not only do we have to guess the Light No Fire specs, but now we don’t have anything concrete to build from. 

Without jumping too much from the minimum specs and using other modern games as a starting point, the above list is likely a fair representation of what to expect.

Systems that fall within these recommended specifications will provide a solid gameplay experience at 1080p, raising framerates from those achieved using the minimum specs to a smooth 60FPS, whilst also upgrading visual integrity.

One major step up here is the RAM. With 16GB, the game will achieve faster load speeds and be able to render the constantly generating environmental assets much easier.

Utilising GPU options from the last 5 or so years will also make gameplay much smoother and will add some great additional features, such as DLSS technology.

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 7600 and the GPU to an AMD RX 7600. The combination of these newer parts means more future-proofing alongside a top-tier 1080p (and even 1440p) experience.

There has been no confirmation yet on whether Light No Fire will support AMD’s FSR 2 or FSR 3, but if it does, you won’t miss out with this GPU.

What do you need to play Light No Fire at higher resolutions?

To enjoy a large online multiplayer game like Light No Fire at high resolutions like 1440p and even 4K, all while having graphical settings on high, these are the specs we think your system will need to hit.

  • Processor: AMD Ryzen7 5800x3D or Intel i7 12700k 
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics:  AMD RX 6800 XT 16GB or Nvidia RTX 3080 10GB
  • Storage: 15 GB

To hit these specs, consider a system like the Evolution AMD Ryzen 7 RTX 4070 Small Gaming PC.

This Chillblast PC features the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 processor, which offers excellent gaming performance and multitasking capabilities. Paired with the Nvidia RTX 4070, you can expect smooth gameplay at 1440p with high settings. This GPU will also easily let you play modern games at 4K, but you may occasionally have to turn down a few visual settings.

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. Plus, its 12GB of VRAM makes it future-proofed against any advances in gaming technology in the years to come.

It even comes with a massive 2TB SSD which is ample room for your game library, plus a huge 32GB of RAM making any task you throw at it a smooth experience.


Until Hello Games releases its official list of specifications for Light No Fire, these educated guesses are a good place to start, with various system requirements providing options for all budgets. 

While meeting the minimum requirements will allow you to play the game, upgrading to a more powerful Chillblast PC will enhance your gaming experience, especially if you aim to play at higher resolutions and settings.
