The Minimum Requirements For The Top 4 Played Games Of June 2020

If you were thinking of playing one of the top 4 played games of June 2020, then you have to make sure you have the minimum specs to play them. You can’t just load the games onto any computer and expect to play them. They’re all pretty graphic-intensive games. They might not be computer-melting titles like Crysis, but trying to run anything under minimum requirements will either not load at all or have the fps of a microwave. Fortunately, you can find the minimum requirements for the top 4 played games of June 2020 here.

Top 7 Game Starts Per Yearmonth 07-2020 (source: MegaDev)

1. Anno 1880

OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
RAM: 8 GB System Memory
GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
GPU: GeForce GTX 670 or Radeon R9 285
DX: DirectX 11
HDD: 60 GB Available Hard Drive Space

When it comes to city-building games, Anno 1800 can get quite intensive. It takes a relatively newer PC with a branded graphics card to attempt to run the game between the minimum and recommended settings. If graphics are important to you, you should upgrade before diving into Anno 1880.

2. Satisfactory

OS: Windows 7 or later (64-Bit)
Processor: i5-3570k 3.4 GHz Quad-Core
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: GTX 760 2GB
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 20 GB available space

Suppose you want to run Satisfactory at satisfactory (pun intended) settings. Even if you’re running an i5-3570K 3.4GHz with a GeForce GTX 660, you may barely pass for the minimum. It’s not very fun unless you upgrade.

3. Total War: Warhammer II

CPU: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 3.0Ghz
OS: Windows 7 64Bit
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GTX 460 1GB | AMD Radeon HD 5770 1GB | Intel HD4000 @720p

Total War: Warhammer II isn’t known for the best when it comes to not having buggy graphics, even with some of the best cards. You might meet the minimum requirements, but even the recommended requirements might be too low for this game to run on the lowest lows.

4. Command And Conquer Remastered Collection

OS: Windows 8.1 or 10
Processor (AMD): Athlon 64 X2 4600 @ 2.4ghz
Processor (Intel): Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2.4ghz
Memory: 4 GB
Graphics Card (AMD): Radeon HD 5570
Graphics Card (Nvidia): GT 420 or equivalent
DirectX: 11 compatible video card or equivalent
Multiplayer Online Connection Requirements: Broadband Internet connection
Hard Drive Space: 32 GB

The standard for Command and Conquer Remastered Collection isn’t going to be very high because they’re just remastering old titles for modern systems. It would be best if you didn’t have to worry about too many dropped frames, even playing on a minimum because these remastered games were built for the absolute minimum.

5. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
CPU: AMD FX 6300 @ 3.8 GHz, Ryzen 3 – 1200, Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.1 GH
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 285 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0)
Resolution: 720p
Targeted frame-rate: 30fps
Video Preset: Low

Let’s be honest here for a moment. Playing through the Ancient Greek Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens on the lowest settings sucks. It’s like trying to watch an epic Greek battle through a twenty-five cent view machine. The game is still playable, but participating in epic battles wearing cool Greek armor feels slightly different if you at least try to get to the 4K recommended requirements.

6. Grand Theft Auto V

OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
Memory: 4GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB

Driving through the streets of Los Santos feels a little dry if you can’t get the draw distance required to see the rest of the city. You might not be able to see a cop car until the last moment, and boom, you’re hit with a star. You could pay a fine and go to jail, but who does that in a Grand Theft Auto game? All you would need to do is hide around the corner, and the cops forget your transgressions exist. The world would be a much darker place if that were the case. Looking at Grand Theft Auto V on the lowest settings somehow makes it look worse than an old arcade racing game, and that’s not a compliment.

7. Shogun 2 – Total War

OS: Windows 7 / Vista / XP
Processor: 2 GHz Intel Dual Core processor / 2.6 GHz Intel Single Core processor, or AMD equivalent (with SSE2)
Memory: 1GB RAM (XP), 2GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)
Graphics: 256 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible card (shader model 3)
DirectX®: DirectX 9.0c
Hard Drive: 32GB free hard disk space
Screen Resolution: 1024×768 minimum

Shogun 2 – Total War is graphic intensive. Even if you meet the recommended settings, your computer will scream as if it had post-traumatic stress disorder about trying to run Crysis. Don’t even attempt any more massive battles with weather effects if you run Shogun 2 – Total War on the lowest settings unless you want the game to look like a Japanese Samurai DLC for Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo.

Keep in mind before buying any of these titles; you have to try to meet the minimum requirements. If you don’t, then it may not be worth the money.

  1. I can’t wait to get a real gamer PC (hopefully in a couple of months!) and play all of these games on max graphics. Anno 1880 will look beautiful on a PC with good specs.
