In addition to revealing the opening gameplay of Forspoken in a new livestream, Luminous Productions also announced the system requirements for PC. Long story short, they’re hefty, and regardless of your configuration, 150 GB of installation space is required.
In terms of minimum requirements, which provide 720p/30 FPS gameplay, an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 or Intel Core i7-3770 3.7 GHz or better, Radeon RX 5500 XT (8 GB) or GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB), and 16 GB RAM is needed. Recommended requirements include a Ryzen 5 3600 or Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz, a Radeon RX 6700 XT (12 GB) or GeForce RTX 3070 (8 GB), and 24 GB of RAM for 1440p/30 FPS gameplay.
Finally, the Ultra settings require a Ryzen 5 5800X (3.8 GHz) or Core i7-12700, Radeon 6800 XT or GeForce RTX 4080 with 16 GB VRAM and 32 GB RAM. This ensures 2160/60 FPS gameplay. It’s also worth noting that while an HDD is necessary at the minimum, a solid-state drive is recommended. An NVMe SSD is mandatory for Ultra settings.
Forspoken releases on January 24th for PS5 and PC. Based on these settings, the console version looks very appealing. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime
