(Image credit: 2K Games)

Gearbox has released the minimum and recommended specs for Borderlands 3. The company listed Intel CPU options and Nvidia GPU options but is highlighting AMD's hardware. That's not a surprise, considering that the developer has previously stated that Borderlands 3 was "developed from the ground up with AMD."

Luckily, the game's specs aren't incredibly intense, at least at 1080p. And many with last-gen graphics cards will still be able to hit the company's recommendations for 1440p.

Here's what the developer suggests:

Minimum Specs (1080p)Recommended Specs (1440p)

The company also revealed all of the graphics settings, including terrain and foliage detail, material quality, volumetric fog and more. You can see the full list of graphics options here.

The game releases on September 13 on PC (exclusively on the Epic Games Store), as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
