In brief: Fans of interactive storytelling on the PC can now check the system requirements laid out by developer Quantic Dream for its drama-based game - Detroit: Become Human.

Gaming on the PC remains unquestionably strong as ever, with an increasing trend of 'console exclusives' joining the platform.

Back in October, Hideo Kojima announced that a PC version of his highly-anticipated 'Death Stranding' will be arriving in the early summer of 2020, and last month, the PC arrival of Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human was confirmed as well.

The game is coming out tomorrow and has the following set of minimum and recommended requirements:

Minimum Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350, 4.2 GHz (6 to 8 logical cores minimum highly recommended)
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon HD 7950
  • Video RAM: 3GB or more

Recommended Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)
  • Processor: i5-8400 @ 2.8GHz or Ryzen 5 1600
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • Video RAM: 4GB or more

The above requirements miss out on details like storage needed for the game files, but the developer has said that "further specs" will be provided "when the game is released."

A demo of the game is also expected to appear alongside the full version, but that's not happened yet. The latter, however, is available to pre-purchase exclusively at the Epic Games Store, while those looking to get it on other storefronts will have to wait for another year.

I just find it amazing that I could run this game with my old i7-4790, 16GB of DDR4 and just a 1060.

It's designed to run 1080/30FPS on a six year old console. It really shouldn't be very demanding. The minimum requirements well outstrip what base PS4 hardware can do as it is- on this game it can often be found chugging along at sub 30FPS.

It's another two years on since Techspot did the GTX780 look back and while it showed how far game requirements have moved on, fundamentally that card still provided a much better experience than what a base PS4 can do.

Ultra settings and locked out to 30FPS was possible on most games, settings those consoles never provide anyway. Typically medium/high at best. In many cases much higher frame rates to boot.

Well my 3570K and GTX1070 is running all games I play with high settings at 1440p. That system is should have little trouble at 1080p.
