Warner Bros. Montreal revealed Full Recommended PC Specifications for Gotham Knights And they are scary. The graphics card alone costs as much as a PlayStation 5, and that’s just to run the game on “high” settings at 1080p. The news comes a week after the studio confirmed that Batman will only run at 30 frames per second on consoles without a performance mode, despite the “new generation” price tag of $70.

Gotham Knights It releases October 21 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The minimum specifications were revealed earlier this year and there’s nothing to sniff at. You’ll need at least an Intel Core i5-9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 and either a GTX 1660 Ti or Radeon RX 590 to get to the lowest settings. But it’s the recommended specs that were added to the Steam page yesterday that people are talking about.

To run the game at 1080p and 60fps, gamers will need an Intel Core i7-10700K or AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor and either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. While AMD’s equivalents are a bit cheaper, the RTX 2070 still runs at over $400, despite the recent drop in card prices due to a crypto crash and inventory buildup. Want to push the frame rate higher or, God forbid, try to get the game out in 4K? You will probably need a gaming device that will save a little money.

Recommended PC specs are especially noticeable this time because Gotham Knights It will only run at 30 frames per second on consoles. Executive Producer Fleur Marty confirmed that there will be no performance mode in the game’s Discord, unlike other recent PS5 and Xbox Series X/S games. Forbidden horizon west And the Forza Horizon 5 Both allow players to choose between 60 frames per second or a graphics mode that features a higher resolution. Marty explained the Gotham Knights exception as being due in part to some unique gameplay features, such as an unrestricted barn that allows players to explore Gotham separately.

But the trade-off still surprises many, not least because of the reason Gotham Knights It recently ditched the PS4 and Xbox One versions and is part of the new wave of $70 console games (despite the PC specs, it’s only $60 on Steam). The news has started a discussion about what players should expect as a baseline for the next wave of vacation and early 2023. Callisto Protocol60 frames per second.

Striking Distance Studios took the opportunity to announce yesterday that spiritual successor to dead space It will arrive on time on December 2nd and Play at a higher frame rate when that happens. The third-person horror shooter has yet to reveal recommended PC specs, but it will be on PS4 and Xbox One as well as new consoles. Of course, talk is cheap, and we’ll see how each game actually performs once it’s released.

One question that players may want to ask is what is required for studios to achieve certain performance standards in the lead up to the game being shipped. Callisto Protocol Director and former co-studio head of Sledgehammer Games, Glen Scofield, praised crisis culture as recently as last month. Although he later apologized for the comments Valuing tired developersAnd the Bloomberg You mentioned that at least some employees at Striking Distance Studios actually crashed to ship the game on time.
