Detroit: Become Human coming to Epic Games Store, GTX 1080 recommended

  1. Like Journey, the trio are expanding from PlayStation exclusives to the PC via the Epic Games Store. While we still don’t know their release dates, the store pages have revealed the minimum and recommended PC specs.

    The minimum specs for all three games are exactly the same: an i5-2400 @ 3.4GHz or equivalent, a GTX 660 or equivalent with 2GB of VRAM, and 4GB of RAM. That’s pretty forgiving, but the recommended specs are a lot harsher.

    Detroit: Become Human looks spectacular on the PS4 Pro, and it’s presumed these recommended specs will produce a similar quality—possibly in 4K. You’ll need at least an i7-2700K or equivalent, a GTX 1080 or equivalent with 8 GB of VRAM, and 12GB of RAM. Again, these requirements are the same for all three games, even the nine-year-old Heavy Rain. The page also shows that Detroit: Become Human supports the Vulkan graphics API.

    No word on how much of your hard drive the games will eat up and all are still listed as “coming soon,” rather than giving exact release dates. In the meantime, you can check out Quantic Dream’s Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered on Steam, which is as mad as it is (mostly) entertaining, and has what must be the longest quick time event in gaming history.

    Last week, Epic said its game exclusivity deals would eventually end, and that it wasn’t allowing crappy games or porn onto its store, though some would argue that Quantic Dream's titles fall into the former category.

    Ugh more wood to the shitfire that is the epic launcher. Do companies not realize that people don't want to use that pos?

    I'm quite happy using it, don't care about stores or launchers or what features they have or don't have, just want a place I can get the game and have it auto-udpate, that's it

    But glad this sat on my pile of shame on PS4 until now, cause I'll definitely move to playing this on PC instead for certain

    I was avoiding the Epic Store at first, then I saw that they have regional pricing and that Metro costs $20 there, instead of $49 on Steam. The same with other games, including the upcoming Vampire 2 (which I'll be buying on GOG anyway, since it's even a little bit cheaper for me there).

    Given the choice, Epic, Steam or GOG, I'll shop around and buy where I get the better price.

    So... you really don't care what you have installed, and running in the background on your PC. Gotcha! ;)

    Launchers are an important thing, and the features they include with them even more so. Steam is by far the most robust. YOU may not care about specific features yet, but eventually, I bet you will find something. I mean, if you play games at all on the PC.

    Epic is indeed hot trash, but in all honesty it's absolutely painless to use and has given me no headaches thus far. I would always prefer to have my entire library in 1 place, but having to stray from time to time isn't a deal breaker. I'd never cheat myself out of any good experience for such a trivial reason.

    Been on Steam since 1.0... so yah, I've been around a LONG time... but as the PC landscape has changed (especially in the last few years) I've come to a point where outside of GOG, I don't have any store allegiance... if the game has DRM, it really doesn't matter to me where I get it because you don't TRULY own it anyway, you just own a login/password... Steam to me has become super bloated over the years and the simpler launchers appeal more to me now (Uplay, for instance is simple in UI and content)... I like as little between me and the games as possible which is why I don't mind the Epic Launcher or the fact that Tencent owns 40% of them... I don't use a real email, real name or a credit card on ANY store on the web, so I'm good there

    So when people say "but Steam has so many more features!" and list them all out, #1 I know every feature it has (I have 3 Steam Links and 4 Steam Controllers in my house) and #2 more features don't entice me, less does (auto-updates are ALL I'm concerned with)

    Oh look, another ESG shitshow exclusive. I guess I won't be playing this game either.

    Take a lesson Epic, your store sucks.

    Already played them on PS4 and I don't care for the Epic Games Store. Not buying this or anything else that forces me to use their launcher.

    How does an RX 580 compare? Is it good enough?
