"Squad SDK" System Requirements[edit | edit source]
With lots and lots of content in the Squad SDK already, it is recommended to have at least 16 GB of RAM on your system to work with the Squad SDK.
If you're interested in contributing to Squad (create models, maps, ...), you can download the Squad SDK for free via the Epic Games-launcher.
For further information on how to install the Squad SDK, see this thread: http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/21412-squad-development-kit-getting-started/
Remarks on Linux and Mac[edit | edit source]
Linux and Mac operating systems are not support at the moment. However, the game engine under Squad, the Unreal Engine 4, will aim at supporting Linux and Mac. Hence, it might be possible that these platforms will be supported in the future.
