PC System Analysis For The Sinking City Requirements
From the same folks who brought us Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, expect The Sinking City to have extremely light system requirements. It's investigative nature means a high frame rate isn't a necessity, and older mid-range graphics cards such as the GeForce GTX 500 series and Radeon HD 6000 should be more than capable of playing it at 1080p.
