What Are the System Requirements for Lord of the Rings: Gollum?

PC System Requirements for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum – Minimum and Recommended

Like a few recent releases, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum requires at least 4 GB of video memory. So if, like me, you’ve got a PC that’s three or four years old, that’s likely to be the thing preventing you from running it.

Here, then, are the minimum and recommended requirements for the game:

Minimum Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10/11 64 Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 / AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060, 6GB / AMD Radeon R9 290X, 4GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 45 GB available space

These will let you run the game at 1080p using the Low graphics preset and, as you might expect, with no ray tracing.

Recommended Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10/11 64 Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, 8GB (with DLSS Quality Setting) / AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT, 12GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 45 GB available space

Those specs will let you run the game at 1080p using the Medium graphics preset with ray tracing. They’re a little high, but there you go.

That is everything you need to know about the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.
