There isn't much in the ways of graphics options (and the options available dont really hit too hard on the fps) but if you keep it on static fps you can probably run it with few issues

It wont be constant but the drops wont be serious. the lowest drop i get is around 50 but thats only for a second or two.
there are some issues with fps drops in towns which cause this but the battles will be a constant 60.


hope this helps :)

If you keep texture filtering and shadows on standard that will reduce the stuttering (those settings seem to have the issues) it'll run a bit smoother.


This port imo has been done alot better than the other two have been.

they need to fix up a few issues regarding the frame drops in town and the online drm and it will be perfect

These requirements ARE NOT accurate at all. This game CAN run on an intel HD graphics 4000 ! I'm not joking !

tl;dr : runs at 20-35fps, 30 average, 720p on intel HD graphics 4000.

I'd say running sub 30fps is considered below minimal requirements. But if that's acceptable for people than all the more power to them.

Only the first part of the game runs well. As soon as I go to the first city, fps drops and stuttering b-beg-g-gin-s-s. Battles are solid 60 fps, but running around is painfully laggy. My rig is supposed to runs this without breaking a sweat, GPU load is always below 40%! Anyone had any luck solving this?

It might just be driver optimization issues, Has Nvidia released a patch for this game? Cuz it runs perfectly on my system, not a single instance where it felt stuttered or laggy.

Guys those requirements listed above are weirdly low. Are they accurate?
Can I really max this game in 1680x1050?

I just started playing the game and so far THIS IS ONE DAMN GOOD PORT! The settings can be adjusted on the fly (right at the very top of the game window) setting frame rate to dynamic =60fps. Game is running smooth with extra settings on!

Also for ppl wondering if they can run the game my gpu TDP is sitting at 50% running native res 1080p. If you have half of a gtx660 you should be able to run this game far as I can tell.

Could work on the lowest settings but I wouldn't bet on it. The card is under-powered compared to minimum requirements listed above

As long as the controller support is good... I don't care if I get 30 fps.

You can run on ultra but FPS will depend on how good the game is optimised. 900p or 1080p should be fine

Square Enix has one more shot to get it right. But seeing as how this game had crazy frame rate issues; especially while exploring the Wildlands, I have a bad feeling this one will be the worst one of the entire bunch.
