Godfall is a very pretty game that’s launching for next-gen consoles and PC. And on PC, to play it at its prettiest, you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for some new components.
In an AMD Radeon RX 6000 Partner Showcase video, Godfall developer Counterplay Games describes what it takes to play the game using 4K textures in 4K resolution. Company CEO Keith Lee says that the game needs a lot of memory bandwidth to run smoothly. And if you’re wondering, Lee says the footage in the video is achieved with 12GB of VRAM.
And it’s not just to get the very best graphics either. The company tweeted the minimum and recommended PC specs to play Godfall, and they are pretty steep. At minimum, the game asks for an AMD Eyzen 5 1600 or Intel Core i5-6600 CPU, an AMD Radeon RX580 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, and 12GB of RAM. For the recommended, this is pushed up to an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or Intel Core i7-8700 CPU, an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPU, and 16GB of RAM.
Prepare to ascend on PC! The PC specs for #Godfall are available now.

So if you haven’t updated your system’s components in a while, you’ll have to do so before playing Godfall. The game launches on 12 November, the same date as the PS5 in selected markets.
