Deathloop: PC hardware requirements and recommended settings revealed
The French game developer Arkane Studios, makers of the popular Dishonored series and part of Bethesda Games, has officially announced the PC requirements for its soon to be released game Deathloop (from US$59 on Amazon). As expected, the game can run on older hardware if settings are lowered, but in order to play the game at higher resolutions gamers need a well performing gaming rig.
The minimum requirements to play the game on 1080p, 30fps and low settings are as follows:
- Processor (CPU): Intel Core i5-8400 (2.80GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1600
- Memory: 12GB RAM
- Graphics (GPU): Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)
To play Deathloop at Full HD resolution, 60fps and high settings, gaming PCs should meet the following requirements:
- Processor (CPU): Intel Core i7-9700K (3.60GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
- Memory: 16GB RAM
- Graphics (GPU): Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 5700 (8GB)
In order to enjoy Deathloop at 4K resolution, 60fps and ultra settings, this hardware is recommended:
- Processor (CPU): Intel Core i9-10900K (3.70GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT
- Memory: 16 GB RAM
- Graphics (GPU): Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 (10GB) or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT (16GB)
On all settings, the game requires a 64bit installation of Windows 10, DirectX 12 and 30GB of storage. Besides the PC version, the game will be released on consoles exclusively for the PS5, which appears a bit awkward since Microsoft has recently acquired Bethesda. Deathloop will be released next week, on September 14 2021.
