A Plague Tale: Requiem system requirements

A Plague: Tale Requiem system requirements do cater to low spec gaming PCs but there's lots of graphics headroom for ray tracing capable graphics cards too

Looking at A Plague Tale: Requiem system requirements, it appears that the stealth game caters to a wide variety of gaming PCs. However, you’ll need a current generation graphics card if you’re hoping to meet the recommended specs.

You can meet A Plague Tale: Requiem system requirements without having the best graphics card on the market, as developer Asobo Studio suggests the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 590 provide just enough horsepower. However, you shouldn’t expect performance to exceed 30fps using ‘Low’ settings at a 1080p resolution.

If you’re hoping to crank up the game’s quality settings higher, you’ll want to grab the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070. The latter allows you to unlock Nvidia DLSS to further boost fps, but both of these pixel pushers should be capable enough to drive A Plague: Tale Requiem at 60fps using ‘Ultra’ settings at a native 1080p resolution.
