Immortals Fenyx Rising system requirements are extremely thorough

Audio player loading…

Ubisoft has unveiled the system requirements for the upcoming (and very promising) faux-mythological action game Immortals Fenyx Rising (opens in new tab), and the good news is that you won't need a super-powered PC to play it—as long as you don't mind cranking the settings down a little bit.

Whatever you think of Ubisoft's games, you've got to give it full credit for being thorough with its system requirements. I do think it's a little amusing how they go directly from "very low" to "high," without an intermediate stop in between, though. Maybe "high" isn't the ideal descriptor here? 

In any event, to the numbers:

Very Low (720p/30 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD FX-6300
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or AMD R9 280X
  • RAM: 8GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • VRAM: 2GB for Nvidia or 3GB for AMD
  • Storage: 28GB HDD
  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit

High (1080p/30 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970 or AMD R9 290
  • RAM: 8GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • VRAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 28GB SSD
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

High (1080p/60 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 7 1700
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD RX Vega 56
  • RAM: 16GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • VRAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 28GB SSD
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Very High (1440p/60 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 Kor AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 2070 Super or AMD RX 5700
  • RAM: 16GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • VRAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 28GB SSD
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Very High (4K/30 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 Kor AMD Ryzen 5 3700X
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 2070 Super or AMD RX Vega 56
  • RAM: 16GB (Dual-channel mode)
  • VRAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 28GB SSD
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

As befits a proper PC game, Immortals Fenyx Rising will support multi-monitor setups and widescreen displays, with uncapped framerates and "in-depth customization options." And if you're thinking to yourself (as I did) that it's a little odd that the 1440p setting would have a higher GPU requirements than the 4K spec, Ubisoft specified that it's because of the higher framerate target. 

Immortals Fenyx Rising is set to come out on December 3 on the Epic Games Store (opens in new tab). For a closer look at what it's all about, including how it is and is not like Zelda, be sure to have a look at our September preview (opens in new tab).
