Life by You System Requirements Higher Than Sims 4; Not a Game for Everyone

We learned the system requirements for Life by You. They are higher than those for The Sims 4. Those interested in the title must own powerful PCs.

Yesterday we got the full announcement of Life by You, a direct competitor to The Sims 4. During the live broadcast, developers from Paradox Tectonic revealed the most important information about the game (you can read about it here). At the same time the game's product card on Steam published the system requirements of the title.

There is no denying it - in order to play Life by You, you will need a powerful PC. Apparently the game will fit into a kind of current trend, within which most upcoming titles have high system requirements.

It must be admitted that this may become an certain obstacle. The Sims 4 after all, has decidedly lower requirements, and as if that wasn't enough, it is available in free-to-play model and has a very strong market position. This gives the game by Electronic Arts a significant advantage.

Life by You - minimum requirements

  1. Processor: Intel Core i5-8600 / AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  2. Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 4 GB / AMD Radeon R9 380 4 GB.
  3. RAM: 16 GB
  4. Disk space: 25 GB
  5. Operating System: Windows 10

Life by You - recommended requirements

  1. Processor: Intel Core i5-10400F / AMD Ryzen 5 5600
  2. Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB / AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
  3. RAM: 16 GB
  4. Disk space: 25 GB
  5. Operating System: Windows 10/11

Looking at the above specifications, take note of the fact that these are preliminary requirements and are expected to change by the time of release - possibly going down. Life by You will only come out in early access in six months (on September 12), and the actual debut of the game is a matter of much more distant future (Early Access period is expected to last at least a year).
