Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Lowers Recommended Specs

Did EA use the Force?

EA recently released the recommended specifications for the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which was met with some heavy critism due to the 32GB of RAM required. Clearly the force is at play here as EA have quickly reduced the recommended amount of RAM from 32GB to 16GB.

Recommended Specs

OS: 64-bit Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor (AMD): Ryzen 7 1700 or Equivalent
Processor (Intel): i7-6700K or Equivalent
Memory: 16 GB
Graphics card (AMD): RX Vega 56 or Equivalent
Graphics card (NVIDIA): GTX 1070 or Equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
Hard-drive space: 55 GB

There’s two scenarios I can think of… Either EA and developer Respawn are Jedi Masters and have used the force to quickly optimize Fallen Order for 16GB of RAM, or it was just an error. Personally, I like the former…

Minimum specs

OS: 64-bit Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor (AMD): FX-6100 or Equivalent
Processor (Intel): i3-3220 or Equivalent
Memory: 8 GB
Graphics card (AMD): Radeon HD 7750 or Equivalent
Graphics card (NVIDIA): GeForce GTX 650 or Equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
Hard-drive space: 55 GB

Let’s be honest, 32GB of RAM is a lot as most games recommend 16GB of RAM, some even 8GB. Games such as Gears 5, Division 2, Borderlands 3, and Control all list 16GB of RAM as their recommended amount of RAM. What made it even more interesting is the fact that Fallen Order’s minimum spec for RAM is just 8GB, so it’s safe to assume that this was just a simple mistake and we can all go about living our lives until Fallen Order is released on November 15.
