PC System Analysis For Firewatch Requirements
Firewatch requires a Radeon HD 6950 graphics card with a Core i3-550 3.2GHz or Athlon II X4 620 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. Firewatch needs a Core i3-2115C 2.0GHz or Athlon II X3 460 processor coupled with a GeForce GTS 450 v4 to get it to run minimum system requirements. This will return around 30FPS at 720p screen res on low graphics settings, but you can also adjust the settings further to tweak. Minimum RAM requirements are 6 GB system memory. Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 11.00. In short you need a 11 year old PC for best Firewatch performance.

This game is bugged i think, i'm seeing bad performance on systems much higher spec than mine, for the record 72 fps average @ultra @1080p for me.

If you are getting that good results, it might be better optimized for Intel or Nvidia(or both), compared to AMD.

Yeah I'm not sure. I kept getting constant frame drops. Probably every 10-15 seconds. It got irritating.

Just finished it yesterday. Damn good game. Although not really worth 20 bucks. I would wait for a sale if i were you. Everything is great: voice acting, writing, story, graphics. But the end killed it a little. Its not the worst ending in history like Mass Effect 3, but they could've done it better. So many unanswered questions. 8/10

The game is so awesome :( I only wish it was a bit longer, and there was [[Spoiler alert]] some actual serious conspiracy going on.


I loved the conversations with Delilah, i would ask about everything and anything i could find just to hear them have a witty chit chat. Makes it feel so real.
