What About 4K?

Godfall is set to launch on November 12th on PC via Epic Games Store, and Playstation 5 in select regions.

For the rest of the world the game will launch on PS5 on November 19th when the console is released.

The looter-slasher RPG is one of the most highly anticipated games of the holiday season and is set to push players' PCs to the limit.

Specs for the game have been released and they are very demanding, especially at 4K.

The official PC requirements were released on the Godfall Twitter account, and even the recommended specs are very demanding.

DEMANDING: The requirements for Godfall have caused some players to call them unnecessarily demanding

Here is a list of the requirements;

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 or Intel Core i5-6600
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • RAM: 12GB

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or Intel Core i7-8700
  • GPU: AMD Radeon 5700 XT 8GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB
  • RAM: 16GB

Will My PC Run It?

To play Godfall on PC you definitely need to having a gaming rig.

Even the minimum requirements require a GTX 1060 6GB, which is about the minimum standard any player should be using in 2020.

It is unknown what graphic setting and frame rate the minimum requirements will achieve, but it will likely be low to medium at 30fps.

When asked on Reddit, the Counterpoint community manager stated that the recommended requirements were to play the game on high settings at 1080p/60fps.

One user replied saying, "Hold up, either this game is the single most demanding game I have ever seen or this is absolutely the worst optimized game ever."

While another compared the requirements to Microsoft Flight Simulator, currently the most demanding game available, saying "Higher system requirements than MS Flight Sim, let that sink in!".

What About 4K?

Keith Lee, the CEO of Counterplay Games, revealed that to play the game at ultra 4K/60fps settings, players will need 12GB of Vram from their GPU.

The game is optimized for AMD GPUs though, with the new RX 6000 series having 16GB of Vram.

Generally either AMD or Nvidia will pay the developers to make the game run better on their GPUs in order to sell more products.

Based on the 12GB Vram is would mean the Nvidia RTX 3080, with only 10GB Vram, wouldn't be able to run the game at 4K ultra settings.

However, it is quite common for the requirements to be overinflated and more realistic requirements will be figured out after the game launches on November 12th.
