Here are the official PC requirements to play Firefall


Red 5 Studio's upcoming game Firefall has completed the first stage of its exclusive beta test, amassing more than 500,000 registered members who anxious to play the highly-anticipated, free-to-play shooter. While the 500,000 mark represents Red 5's "commitment to nurturing a flourishing community which stands behind its innovative approach to online gaming," the developer isn't looking to slow down anytime soon. In fact, to prepare for a new wave of players, Red 5 has revealed the official system requirements to play Firefall.


  • OS: Windows XP (32/64-bit)
  • PROCESSOR (AMD): Dual Core @ 2.6 Ghz (Athon 64 x2, Athlon II x2, Phenom II x2)
  • PROCESSOR (Intel): Dual Core @ 2.2 Ghz (Core 2, Core i3, Pentium Dual Core)
  • GPU: DirectX 9 compatible AMD or Nvidia video card with 1GB RAM (AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4550 or Nvidia Geforce 8600)
  • MEMORY: 4 GB


  • PROCESSOR (AMD): Quad Core @ 2.8 Ghz (Athlon II X4, Phenom, Phenom II X4)
  • PROCESSOR (Intel): Quad Core @ 2.4 Ghz (Core 2 Quad, i5, i7)

  • MEMORY: 4 GB

"The feedback and support from our community has been an integral part of the development process," said Red 5 CEO Mark Kern. “We’re treating Firefall as a service, which means it’s critical that we’re continually adding value and fun for players. Having a large and growing community lets us know that we’re on the right track. But more importantly, their feedback helps us stay on the right track.”

How serious is Kern about user and community feedback? Red 5 is getting ready to roll out The Tribe, a massive update based on community input that will affect everything from progression to core gameplay mechanics.

As Firefall moves into stage two of its exclusive beta, Red 5 will be increasing the number of invites sent out to meet the growing demand. If you want to participate and meet the minimum requirements needed to run Firefall, then head over to the official game page and sign up for a chance.
