Official Can I run it? thread
Hey guys,

Just starting this thread to help see if users can run the game :)

We haven't got full-specs/recommend out yet as it's still early days but hopefully I can shed some light!

Feel free to chip in.

Remember guys, this is just estimated settings. It's truly difficult to tell what exact fps you'll get, and the game is still being optimized so don't worry, we'll improve over time :)! Fiddling with settings is the best option ;)

You should make this a whole new section on the forum. So all the new posts can be in one place with your sticky on top with the rec specs when you release them

I've had a friend asking me if they'll be able to run it on their laptop, and as I'm a little skeptical due to the fact they don't know the exact version of their graphics card (and the fact its integrated) I guess I'll leave the information they gave me here lol. Thanks for any responses that may help shed some light for them.

Processor: Intel(R) Core i5 @ 2.40 GHz
RAM: 8GB
System: Windows 8 64-bit
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics Family, guessing either a 4000 or 5000.

You guys will be able to run the game. You'll need to fiddle with the settings yourself to find your most optimal / preferred setup. I'm using a 970 and I can hit the top end avging about 24 FPS on a 1080p monitor. Got some things set to low though :)

Booting up my laptop and switching it to integrated to test. Will be a while before I can get back to you as it has to download a massive update.

Not sure why you are asking as these specs are a lot higher than others listed.
Kinda clear you will be able to run it fine.

You mean windows 10 right? 8 is a monstrosity that should be avoided (though is fine for tablets)

You guys will all be able to run the game. It's difficult to say how much FPS you'll get because it depends on what settings you turn up and turn down ;). You'll need to fiddle with that yourself :).

Update on the integrated: My laptop is telling me no when I'm asking it to switch from dedicated, still trying to see if I can test it. Will get back to you. DX11 is a must though.
