It looks like there are more and more games with high PC requirements right before our eyes.
A Plague Tale: Requiem, out October 18th, requires a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 XT in Full HD only!
Such requirements are specified for 1080p and 60 fps at maximum graphics quality settings. What kind of PC, according to the developers, should be to launch the project in 4K at 60 fps, one can only guess. This is probably where the GeForce RTX 4090, which comes out a few days before the launch of the game, comes in handy. Moreover, A Plague Tale: Requiem just supports DLSS 3.
As for the rest of the requirements, the recommended ones are a Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and 16 GB of RAM. The minimum ones (to run in Full HD at 30 fps and the minimum graphics quality settings) indicate the Core i5-4690K and AMD FX-8350, and the video cards are suitable for the GeForce GTX 970 and Radeon RX 590.
It is always worth remembering that very often system requirements are indicated with a very large margin, and in practice, games work without difficulty on significantly less productive PCs. However, in this case, the requirements are really amazing. For comparison, Cyberpunk 2077 has almost identical minimum requirements to those of A Plague Tale: Requiem, but only the GTX 1660 Super and RX 590 appear in the recommended ones, but not the RX 6800 XT.
Recall that yesterday we also learned the system requirements of the Dead Space remake, which also turned out to be surprisingly high.
Gordon Freeman has become the hero of a new game in the Half-Life universe: it will appear soon on Steam
Developer PinkyDev has revealed that the game, codenamed Codename: Loop, which is a spin-off of the Half-Life shooter, has received permission from Valve to be placed on Steam in the near future.
The main protagonist of Codename: Loop is the protagonist of the Half-Life series, Gordon Freeman. The project will combine an isometric shooter and roguelike elements. The project is expected to be released this year.
An important point of Codename: Loop is its compatibility with the original Half-Life BSP file format. This allows Codename: Loop to take advantage of the GoldSrc engine while maintaining the look and feel of Half-Life in the Unity engine. Codename: Loop also features third-person views and a classic first-person view for fans who want to create FPS-style levels. BSP compatibility enhances the potential of Codename: Loop to support the modding community, as level designers can use existing tools to create maps and campaigns in Codename: Loop.
Keeping the classic spirit of Half-Life alive is a top priority for PinkyDev, who wrote in the project’s latest update: “I will do my best to support the Steam Workshop so everyone can share campaigns and levels and support this game forever.”
The Dead Space remake will need a very powerful PC to run, and against this background, the comparison with the 2008 game raises questions.
Yesterday, the developers published a gameplay video of the Dead Space remake, and today we can evaluate the system requirements of the project.
The Steam page states that the minimum requirement to run the game is a PC with a Ryzen 5 2600X or Core i5-8600 processor and a Radeon RX 5700 or GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. 6700 XT or GeForce RTX 2070. In both cases, you will also need 16 GB of RAM and 50 GB of storage.
System requirements can be called very high. For example, Battlefield 2042, released last year and based on the same Frostbite engine, can be content with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
Another feature is that the Radeon RX 5700 is much more powerful than the GTX 1070, and the RX 6700 XT is incomparably faster than the RTX 2070, so it’s not very clear why these cards are listed as equal in the requirements, but this is a common problem.
You can also appreciate the comparison of the fresh video of the Dead Space remake with the original game. Despite the fact that the new project is definitely head and shoulders above the original in details, in general, the difference cannot be called catastrophic. The original game was released in 2008. By the way, its requirements include GeForce 6800 or Radeon X1600 Pro.
