Forspoken System Requirements Revealed

Is your gaming rig ready to unveil the magical adventures of Forspoken? Compare the system requirements for your PC right here.

Hefty systems requirements are expected whenever a new game is about to release. However, Square Enix pushed it to another level for PC gamers by increasing the minimum RAM requirements to a double-digit and the storage size to a triple-digit with at least 8 gigs of GPU VRAM, just for running the game in 720p resolution @ 30fps.

Sounds insane, right? Well, that is only the beginning. The CPU Guide is here to provide you with complete details on Forspoken system requirements for PC. We will also discuss the game’s PC features and bring some insights if you can run the game on new-gen consoles.

Forspoken System Requirements for PC

  • Operating System: Windows 11 (64-bit) or Windows 10 (64-bit)

A preview of Forspoken’s PC gameplay:

4K Resolution System Requirements (for 2160p @ 60FPS)

  • Operating System: Windows 11 (64-bit) or Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-12700 or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X @ 3.8 GHz
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 @ (16GB VRAM) or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT @ (16GB VRAM)
  • Memory: 32 GB
  • Storage Space: NVMe SSD 150 GB

Taking a first look at the system requirements, I felt Luminous Productions had no idea about PC hardware, and they just released the game for maxed-out specs, just for a better experience. The Forspoken Reddit community is filled with questions; running a game on 30FPS is a shame for PC players.

However, I questioned my opinion once I looked at the Forspoken gameplay and features the game has to offer. So, it seems like the game really needs some high-end gaming rig to run smoothly.

Forspoken PC Features

FOorspoken delivers PC-specific features such as 32:9 ultra-widescreen support with HDR and AMD FSR 2.0. Although the cutscenes do not support the ultra-wide screen, the game still gives an immersive experience to the players.

However, the Forspoken demo is only available for PS5, so we cannot get the insights or run benchmarks for the game before the official release. But Forspoken features can work with DualShock 4 and Dual Sense controllers, which means you’ll get the exact immersive experience as PlayStation on PC.

Is Forspoken Optimized for PlayStation 5?

After the release of Forespoken demo version, fans noticed many areas of improvement, which led to development changes. Square Enix once again had to delay things from the Forspoken’s initial release date.

But the wait was worth the while as the Forspoken PS5 demo received an update this week, adding button mapping, adjusting text size, and resolving some technical issues experienced by the gamers. Assessing from playing the demo again, Forspoken seems well optimized for PlayStation 5.

The high specs demanding Forspoken defines why it is set to be PS5 exclusive due to its off-the-charts system requirements. There is not much time left for PC players to get prepared ever since the release of shocking system requirements. So, you better get your rig together before the final release.
