Yesterday, SoT dropped specs for all the world to see for the PC.
Who and what can run this quirky, oddly beautiful game? Turns out pretty much everyone if you don’t mind the rez drop.
Even at its lowest settings at 540p (aptly named “cursed” setting), you only need about 4 gbs of RAM, integrated graphics and processing.
farther up, the graphics cards change marginally until you reach about 1080, in which I would recommend using a GTX 970 or greater.
at around 4k, youll need about 8GB (surprisingly not breaking the need for 16)
On the SoT website, the PC design lead, Ted Timmins, had this to say about the specs of the game:
“Our rendering team set themselves the goal early on of “how low can we go”, sometimes also referred to fondly as “getting the game running on a potato”,
which is why we want to deliver a great version of the game even for those with computers below our official minimum spec. “
To many this may seem like not too much of a big deal, but there aren’t too many games that optimize in such a way that the barrier to access in nearly non-existent for a AAA game.
With the specs so low to start, are you gonna play? Do you have a potato you want to play this on? Let us know in the comments down below!
