Satvival is designed to run well on a wide variety of PC hardware so that as many players as possible can board the Battle Bus and play. To play Satvival at its best on PC, we recommend the following system specifications.

Recommended System Requirements

๐Ÿ“ผ  Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 or equivalent DX11 GPU
๐Ÿ’ป  Video Memory: 2 GB VRAM
๐Ÿ“Ÿ  Processor: Core i5-7300U 3.5 GHz
๐Ÿš€  Memory 8 GB RAM
๐Ÿ“‡  OS: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit or Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6

Minimum System Requirements

๐Ÿ“ผ  Video Card:  Intel HD 4000 on PC or Intel Iris Pro 5200 or equivalent AMD GPU on Mac
๐Ÿ“Ÿ  Processor: Core i3-3225 3.3 GHz

Mac computers must support Metal API. Check if your Mac supports Metal here.

If you just meet the minimum system requirements, Satvival will run on your machine, but probably not on the highest settings. Reducing the graphics settings in Satvival and disabling background apps will help.

    About this Mac window
  2. Compare your macOS version, Processor , Memory and Graphics  to the Satvival system requirements. 

As an example with the above Mac:

  • macOS: 10.15.4
  • Processor : Intel i9 2.4 GHz 
  • Memory: 32 GB
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon Pro 5500M

This Mac exceeds the requirements to run Satvival as it as a higher version of macOS, a faster processor, more memory, and a good enough video card.
