Risen packshot image
Risen is a single-player fantasy-themed action-oriented computer role-playing game under development by the German company Piranha Bytes, and published by Deep Silver.
The beginning of the game will have the protagonist shipwrecked after a storm on the Forbidden Island, home to an active volcano. Ancient temple ruins have recently risen from the ground, and bizarre creatures infest the island. Added to the situation, the Inquisition forbids anyone to exit the city of the island.

I think so, yes. I ran it on high with 25-40 fps. Ran smoothly anyway, never felt like I needed more fps. Maybe you'll need to lower your resolution just a bit.
