Mass Effect 3 PC system requirements

Published 2 years, 7 months ago by Prima Games

Can your PC run Mass Effect 3? BioWare has released a list of PC system requirements needed to run the demo of its sci-fi role-player, which will likely remain the same for the full game.

In fact, Mass Effect 3's list of demo requirements asks for a whopping 15GB of hard drive space, which may mean BioWare's technical rundown is simply the full game's requirements cut-and-pasted.

It's also worth remembering that Mass Effect 3 on PC requires EA's Origin service to run. Rival service Steam is excluded.

The game's single-player campaign will require a one-time online authentication before the single-player game can be played. Multiplayer Mass Effect 3 will obviously require a constant internet connection.
