PC System Analysis For Firewatch Requirements
While Firewatch graphics look good, Firewatch uses the Unity graphics engine with fairly simple textures. This makes it much more likely to run on low end PCs. An Nvidia GTS 450 graphics card is the minimum Firewatch requirement, whereas it will likely need a fair amount of system memory to run smoothly, 6GB has been quoted as minimum RAM requirement.
