Palia System Requirements

Welcome to Palia's system requirements guide! We understand that players have varying computer setups, and while the highest spec machines will allow for the most immersive experience, our goal is to make the game accessible to as many players as possible. Whether you have a top-of-the-line gaming rig or a more modest setup, we want you to enjoy Palia to the fullest extent.

Every PC configuration is unique and various factors, such as background applications, driver versions, and system settings, can impact your gaming experience. Even if your hardware meets the specifications listed below, you might need to test different settings to find the perfect balance between visuals and performance for your specific setup.

In this article, we will walk you through three different options and their corresponding hardware specifications. While lower-end machines may not achieve the same level of detail as higher-end ones, rest assured that we've optimized the game to deliver a satisfying visual experience, even on less powerful systems.

> NOTE: Palia runs best when installed on a solid state drive

Highest Spec

Palians with high-end machines will relish the breathtaking landscapes and intricate textures, providing an unparalleled level of immersion.

Quality preset suggestion: Epic (or lower)

Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit or higher
CPU: Intel i7-8700 / AMD Ryzen 7 3700x or equivalent
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 / AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or equivalent

Recommended Spec

While some of the finer details might be dialed back, the overall world and its elements will remain captivating and engaging.

Quality preset suggestion: High - Medium (or lower)

Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit or higher
CPU: Intel i5-7300 / AMD Ryzen 3 3300U or equivalent
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 / AMD RX 580 or equivalent

Minimum Spec

Even on more modest setups, the "Minimum" setting allows you to experience Palia on lower-powered hardware.

However, it's essential to note that on minimum spec machines, you might experience occasional crashes or performance hiccups, especially during more demanding in-game moments.

To minimize such occurrences, we recommend ensuring that your operating system, drivers, and game software are up to date. Additionally, closing any unnecessary background applications can help optimize your gaming experience. Also, Palia will attempt to run below minimum specifications, including HDDs, dual-core CPUs, and integrated GPUs, but please expect that the overall game experience might be significantly diminished.

Quality preset suggestion: Low

Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit or higher
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K / AMD FX-8350 CPU or equivalent
GPU: GeForce GTX 660 / Radeon R9 270 or equivalent
