The Gotham Knights system requirements are all that stand between you and your gaming PC from joining the Batman family to protect Gotham City in the wake of the caped crusader’s untimely death. You won’t need a Bat Computer to play the DC RPG, so to speak, buts its lofty specs are something you’d probably see if you’re dosed with Scarecrow’s fear toxin.

Gotham Knights specs get very close to asking for the best gaming PC as its recommended rig, pushing for processors that are less than two years old and graphics cards that released three or four years ago. Considering a global chip shortage made it incredibly difficult to upgrade during this time, it’s fair to say plenty of gamers will need to figure out the best Gotham Knights settings if they want a higher frame rate.

The minimum specs needed to meet the Gotham Knights system requirements aren’t as intimidating, but you might want to consider upgrading to the best gaming CPU you can if your computer’s age is closer to Alfred’s than Robin’s. Developer WB Games Montréal suggests you’ll need a chip that’s at least as powerful as the Intel Core i5 9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600, meaning you’ll want six cores and twelve threads at the very least.

The Gotham Knights size is 45Gb, so get downloading the game well ahead of time , and you might want to investigate a large gaming SSD.

To put this in perspective, the Steam Hardware Survey for September 2022 suggests that just 38.38% of gamers on Valve’s platform have a GPU that can run the game at all, while 22.84% of users have a graphics card that’s able to play Gotham Knights at the recommended level or higher – at just 1080p resolution no less.

Here are the Gotham Knights system requirements:

If you’re in the quarter that can rock the recommended settings with the best graphics card, rejoice, as you’ll also have access to Gotham Knights ray traced reflections. Nvidia DLSS and Intel XeSS are on-hand to help boost fps, too. And yes, it has all the right aspect ratio support you can ask for, making it an ideal playthough on the best gaming monitor.
