It received a lot of criticism of all kinds in 2014 and this 2023 it will return from the hands of CI Games, together with its developer HEXWORKS, with many new features. For this reason, the company has revealed well in advance the requirements for Lords of the Fallen with Unreal Engine 5, one of the main requests to enjoy this game again, but it is far from the only one. Can we move it with our PC?
If you already liked the original title from 9 years ago, this new version full of novelties will not only make you remember all that, but it will take it two steps further, also enjoying a new generation graphic quality. The problem is that the graphics level implemented by Unreal Engine 5 takes the hardware to the next level as well.
A game that presents important novelties
It is the big question, and the requirements reveal it, which seem really demanding. But first, some improvements that this great title will bring. The first is the fact that the interconnected world that has always characterized this game is now further enhanced. CI Games claims that said world is nothing less than five times bigger than in the original title, which means a lot of added content for this version with Unreal Engine 5.
That said, another novelty is character customization. CI Games shows how we can adapt the complexion of the hero, and how the clothes and costumes will be modified to this physical change of the character.
The second aspect in terms of improvements are the high-resolution textures, which, although they already improve the game in a more than appreciable way, the company talks about incredibly detailed details in things like objects, clothing, or game surfaces. . The term they use is micro-detail.
Finally, we have the new physics thanks to UE5, which have been used together with the lighting of Lumen GI, with details such as the new light bounce or how it intersects with global illumination. And all this with minimal impact on performance. Now yes, given all the news, what does this Lords of the Fallen ask for with UE5?
Lords of the Fallen, PC requirements, do you want to play it with UE5?
If you’ve seen the video and played the game at the time, you’ll see that the graphic quality is on another level, like the hardware you’ll need depending on the resolutions. Be careful, because it will be demanding for your PC:
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- Processor: Intel i5 8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- Graphics: 6 GB of VRAM, NVIDIA GTX-1060 or AMD Radeon RX 590
- DirectX: version 11
- Grid: broadband internet connection
- Storage: 45 GB of available space
- Additional notes: low quality settings at 720p | SSD (preferred) or Hard Drive (supported)
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit.
- Processor: Intel i7 8700 | AMD Ryzen 5 3600.
- Memory: 16GB RAM.
- Graphics: 8GB of VRAM | NVIDIA RTX-2080 or AMD Radeon RX 6700.
- DirectX: version 12.
- Grid: broadband internet connection.
- Storage: 45 GB of available space.
- Additional notes: 1080p high quality settings | SSD required.
Well, as we can see, for the so-called 1080p High they are already asking us for an RTX 2080 with 8 GB of VRAM, or an RX 6700 with 10 GB. Putting it in perspective, it’s basically the same as ordering an RTX 4060 or an RX 7600, both of which will also have 8GB.
If you want to increase the resolution, it will be based on lowering settings to medium or scaling on the GPU, which already means going to an RTX 3070 or RX 6800 at least considering the requirements they ask for the previous resolution. The sought after 4K 60 FPS we assume that it will be with very high-end hardware, such as RTX 3080 Ti or RX 6950 XT, RTX 4070 Ti or RX 7900 XT. We will have to wait for October 13 to verify it, in the meantime, they have time to polish the details.
