Our Rig used to test the game

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM DDR4
  • Graphics: GTX 1660 6GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 1TB HDD 7200 RPM

There is an option in the settings for Slow HDDs. if you are facing storage speed issues, we would recommend using that feature.


Results and Conclusion

Our main goal with the above settings was to achieve beyond 30FPS. We were able to do that easily for most parts of the game. In very high graphical scenes, the frame rates dropped a bit. But we still managed to get solid frame rates to enjoy the game properly.

Keeping in mind the 1050TI, we made changes in the settings to suit all sections of graphics cards the best. The ideal settings, if we do not take 1050TI into account, would be to put the game at 720p – Low settings. Put Textures to Medium and Crowd Density to Medium and you are all set for a good gaming experience. For 1080p settings, just turn up the resolution and the rest remains the same.
