Okay. I tested (with 4gb ram, not 8gb) and it run pretty good. Runs at these settings > ( http://i.imgur.com/GZhvq2E.png ) with good fps ( http://i.imgur.com/wE6y0Ee.jpg ).
And it can run at 1440p with -45fps

Can I run this game in any way shape or form? or is my GPU too weak? My better GPU recently broke and I'm stuck with this for now.

I got the demo and it wont start, some shader error. Can anyone confirm if my graphics card even works with this game at all?

Reason why i even bothered asking in the first place is that ive seen videos of people running the game on lowest settings with a GT 610 and core 2 duo. But i cant even launch the demo (some error) so i just wanted to know if the game even supports my GPU at all

That depends what the error is but I'm betting it's too old.

High textures with 1GB VRAM & 8GB ram is not possible without stutter,expecially on 1080p,atleast im expiriencing it even on res of my monitor,but as for rest settings you can try for high,also lower shadows to medium and you should be getting decent fps,GL! If not just lower the settings ofc :D

Thanks for the answer! I usually have problems with very complex shadows and some newer types of lighting, as for textures, AA and other post processes i never had much trouble. I guess it depends on the game. The good memory bandwidth helps a lot it may only be 1 GB but its a fast one.

Yes mate but this game on high textures takes more than 2gb vram,so unless there is more dram to cover that vram it will stutter,but maybe lets hope u dont!!!Let us now how u ran it!!!

The game runs well with 45fps-90fps on decent settings 1080p but there is stutter (its not unplayable but it's quite annoying): Textures:Medium Texture Filtering:Very High Mesh Quality:Medium Effects Rendering:High Shadows:Medium Volumetric Lighting Quality:Low Rendering Method:Normal Resolution Scale:1 AA:FXAA+TAA all other stuff is set on ON except Ambient Occlusion, Shadow Cache and Reflections. And this was tested on STOCK GPU speeds 900/1200 i usually run 1025/1350 and CPU speed constant turbo 3,95GHz. GPU usage 100% 976MB 62c. CPU usage is 30%-70%.

Bear in mind i was running in Borderless Window with a lot of other stuff running in the background ( discord, multiple chrome tabs, MSI Afterburner, Avast etc..). In Full Screen you could get a bit more fps and with shutting down background programs the CPU wouldn't be as nearly stressed as it was. All in all for a 2017 game it has solid optimisation and with some tweaking any modest PC (like mine) could run this no problem.

Yeah thats what i've been telling you,not enough ram to cover vram & ram usage in general,and always before i run this game or any new game i close all unnecessary programs such as chrome,msi afterburner etc to minimize ram usage so i dont get stutter or just buy more ram memory!!

Yea you where right, dough the Ram usage stayed below 6GB. Forgot to check the cached hard drive memory usage. It probably went over 8GB.

i can run this game on low with 20-30 FPS / Sometimes i even get 40 or around it. I am on laptop so it`s pretty not cool to play on this " thing " . It really depends on what game i am willing to play from the new once.

I think you should be able to play it on Medium/Low or Medium/High - i mean i am not sure how your PC is gonna hold up to this game, but i think you should have at least 40-50-60 FPS - depends on your settings ofc.

If you have a similar PC as mine then you can run this with no trouble at 1440x900 low settings resolution scale set at 1.4 with an average 40-60 fps, mostly around the 50's.
