There's just two weeks to go until we'll be able to capture our own thralls and bait a titan into sucker-punching a giant snake wrapped around a sandy structure. But will your PC be able to handle the onslaught of Conan Exiles? Most likely!
With a few gameplay videos, livestream events and trailers already out in the open, the commencement of the survival sim's Early Access period begins January 31. And so long as you're running a GPU from the last 5 years or so, you should be good to go.
Those looking to scrape through the dusty deserts of Hyboria need only be equipped with a GTX 660 or an equivelant AMD GPU around the HD 7950 range. Hard drive space shouldn't be too much of a worry with 35GB being around the average of a decently scaled 3D game of its kind these days. 4GB of memory and a relatively low-powered i3 processor is all it takes to get started.
Ubisoft Announces For Honor Closed Beta starting on 26th-29th January
Those looking for the full experience, however, will likely want to kit themselves out with one of Nvidia's more recent high-end cards like the GTX 1070. Memory, on the other hand, still doesn't exceed the 8GB that was considered the norm a few years ago. While some titles are pushing for 12-16GB rigs, FunCom are aiming for the average in that department. Granted, the 'Recommended' requirements listed are those those looking to max out the title. Anyone else should be fine on something a little older like the GTX 7xx series or AMD RX 380 so long as they're carrying a fairly modern i5, i7 or AMD FX chip. DirectX 11 is required.
