Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy System Requirements for PC Revealed: Demands a Massive 150 GB of Storage


Square Enix’s next big project is bringing one of the most beloved Marvel properties to gaming, Guardians of the Galaxy, and so far, it’s looking pretty good. The game follows the adventures of the eponymous Guardians of the Galaxy as the rag-tag group takes on a new set of adventures across the galaxy. Players take control of Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord as they lead the Guardians in this space action-adventure title.

The game comes out on 26 October, 2021 for both PC and Consoles, but the game will indeed ship with PC-exclusive enhancements and features that will surely make fans very happy. The system requirements for the game have appeared on its Steam page, and it certainly looks like players will need quite a lot of storage to run Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy PC System Requirements revealed

Guardian of the Galaxy


    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows® 10 64 bit Build 1803
    • Processor: AMD Ryzen™ 5 1400 / Intel® Core™ i5-4460
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM

    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows® 10 64 bit Build 1803
    • Processor: AMD Ryzen™ 5 1600 / Intel® Core™ i7-4790
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1660 Super / AMD Radeon™ RX 590
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Storage: 150 GB available space

While the rest of the requirements look pretty reasonable, the 150 GB storage requirement seems to be turning quite a lot of heads as that kind of storage space is usually demanded by the likes of games such as Call of Duty Warzone and the big AAAs such as Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption II.

Guardians of the Galaxy certainly has a lot going for it, especially with regards to the IP that it is based on, and the gameplay looks sufficiently chaotic and fun. Yet, the game is going to have an uphill battle trying to convert non-Marvel fans to trying out the game as purely a fun action-adventure title.

Ray-Tracing Requirements Revealed as well

Guardians of the Galaxy Ray-Tracing

NVIDIA has also released a comprehensive breakdown of requirements for Ray-Tracing on Pc and it looks players will need at least an NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU, an Intel i5-9400/AMD Ryzen 5 2600, 16GB RAM. That kind of hardware will allow players to turn on Ray Tracing on the Low Detail-RT High Graphics Preset.

The beefiest of beefy PCs sporting an RTX 3070 with Intel Core i5-10600/AMD Ryzen 5 3600X will be able to truly get the best out of the game with High Detail-RT Very High Graphics preset. This, paired with the game’s massive storage requirement easily makes Guardians of the Galaxy one of the most taxing games around in 2021.
