Forspoken PC Requirements Reveals Some Hardcore Specifications

"But can it run Forspoken?"

Highlights

  • Forspoken will require at least an NVIDIA GTX 1060 to run at the lowest possible preset.
  • The game comes out on January 24, 2023.
  • Forspoken is the latest release from Luminous Studios (Final Fantasy XV).

Forspoken comes out next week (24 January 2023) on PC and PlayStation 5. Ahead of its release, the devs have shared the PC system requirements for the game, and it is quite staggering to behold. The game is going to require at least 16GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB VRAM) to run on the lowest possible preset (720p, 30 fps).

While that is pretty confusing by itself, the game will also need a massive 24GB RAM and an NVIDIA RTX 3070 (8GB VRAM) to run at 1440p, 30 fps. Looks like players are going to have invested in some really powerful hardware if they wanna try out Forspoken. The game is the newest release from Luminous Studio, which previously led development on Final Fantasy XV. The studio was previously known as Business Division 2 and was one of the 12 internal development and production divisions of Square Enix.

Forspoken is an action RPG that puts players in a rather surreal environment, powered by mystical forces that provide all sorts of weaponry and movement abilities.

While gamers had expected games to start edging towards this point eventually, it does seem Forspoken may be early to the proverbial party. The game will require a brand-new NVIDIA GeForce RTS 4080 to run on the highest possible settings, which probably shouldn’t be a bar that games set this early on in this particular console generation.

The PS5 will probably be the more popular platform for the console as it looks like you’re going to need an exceptionally powerful and expensive setup for it to run decently. It will be interesting to see how the game performs financially on PC as it hinges on how well-optimized the game is for a range of PC setups.
