Yes you can,medium settings at the best,game is not well optimized,and there are a lot of things that need to be worked on in regards of game's performance.

I wouldn't judge the whole GD community because of the actions of one troll, chances are they're a fanboy of the game that doesn't like people saying it's unoptimized .... it happens unfortunately :/


EDIt ... the reason you're been downvoted is because of comment like THIS

I can update you with the optimization patch when it comes out but for now, you can try it on low probably 20-30fps. Like roley said, you can request for a refund on steam if you couldn't run the game or if you don't like how the game it is now as long as you meet the requirements.

Hey buddy, I hear the game is VERY unoptimzed at the moment, judging from reviews but remember ... you can get it, try it and refund on Steam within 14 days of purchase and less than 2 hours of gameplay if your PC can't handle it very well :)

I can run it on low with medium view distance - it is poorly optimised and sometimes I have fps spikes... I hope they fix it because otherwise the game is awesome.

optimization is so-so, but the game requires really high graphics. I don't think you can run it on medium settings, try lowest settings and lower your resolution(probably 900p) might get you 30 fps.
