Our view is to answer the question, what PC should I buy that can play A Plague Tale: Innocence really well, and for the best possible price today? Its therefore our desire to consistently keep stable frame rates at top end graphics settings, and a 1080p screen resolution. We visit this page every day to check on the prices and selected components we have added for this PC build.

This title falls in the , Action, Adventure, Stealth genre category, which itself can influence the type of hardware we might consider for this build. Something we sometimes dont consider is that the game would be developed in 2019 and therefore on hardware from around that period of time. We can also assume that hardware from around that period would be part of the targeted hardware, in terms of performance, by the developers, as they provide graphical options for the hardware capabilities available.
