Elite Dangerous shows off the system specs for Horizon in its latest newsletter
What will it take for you to land your ship on planets in Elite: Dangerous? Well, at the very least it will take a computer powerful enough to run the Horizons expansion. The most recent official newsletter unveils the official system specifications, and while the specifications in question are not bargain-basement level most recent computers shouldn’t have many issues. Running 64-bit Windows 7 with a quad-core processor and a GPU manufactured within the past five years? You’ll be fine.
Fans can also check out some illegal racing footage (from inside the game, that is), along with a thank-you letter from David Braben and instructions on taking part in the expansion beta. You can also check out that racing footage just below if your greatest ambition is to land on planetary surfaces just to defy local laws and drive on stuff you’re no supposed to. We’re not here to judge.
