The player controls Torque, a man who has been sent to Abbott State Penitentiary on Carnate Island, Maryland. Torque has been convicted and sentenced to death for murdering his ex-wife and two children, although he claims to have blacked out at the time this happened and cannot remember anything. The night Torque arrives, there is a powerful earthquake, which releases an army of monsters upon the facility. Torque's cell door breaks and he is freed from captivity. Starting from his cell, Torque traverses the prison in an attempt to escape Carnate Island alive.
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce 4 MX 440/Radeon 8500 Series 64MB and it should be paired with either a Athlon XP 2000+/Pentium 4 2.0GHz CPU to match the The Suffering recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or The Suffering won’t run. In short you need a 17 year old PC for best The Suffering performance.
