Alongside a slew of new information for Forspoken, including an update to the PlayStation 5 exclusive demo, Square Enix has revealed both the PC technical requirements as well as exclusive features for players who will opt to play the company's latest Action RPG on their PCs.
First up ar the technical requirements, which can be found embedded below:
Players will require a GTX 1060 or an RX 5500XT to meet the game's minimum GPU requirements, which only target 720p at 30FPS. For 1440p at 30FPS players will have to have either an RTX 3070 or an RX 6700XT. For 4K at 60FPS, players will be looking at either an RX 6800XT or an RTX 4080.
Other notable requirements is that the game will necessitate 16GB of RAM to run at all, and recommends 24GB and 32GB for 1440p and 4K respectively. While Forspoken will supposedly run on a Hard Drive, it's also recommended that players set aside 150GB of SSD space in order to play the game at it's best.
