‘Forspoken’ confirms PC system requirements ahead of launch

The game is set to launch next week (January 24)

The minimum and recommended PC system requirements for Forspoken, Square Enix‘s upcoming role-playing game, have been confirmed – check to see if you can run it below.

The system requirements were shared today (January 17), and reveal three tiers of system requirements – minimum, recommended, and ultra.

While Forspoken‘s minimum system requirements are fairly forgiving for older rigs, the recommended requirements are unusual because they recommend 24GB of RAM – traditionally for current-gen games, 16GB has been enough unless players are looking to run certain games in 4K.


Additionally, players may find Forspoken‘s recommended and ultra settings to be quite demanding – particularly because the recommended specifications will only run the game at 30FPS.
