Remember that game that THQ Nordic was teasing ahead of The Game Awards? Well, it wasn’t Jagged Alliance, despite the strong rumours. Instead, it was Fade to Silence, an ambitious open-world, single-player RPG set during an unrelenting winter with Eldritch horrors lurking just out of sight. It’s actually looking pretty neat, and the best bit is it’s out in Early Access right now.

We’ve got five minutes of gameplay footage direct from Fade to Silence, as well the system requirements required to run this PC exclusive.

The system requirements for Fade to Silence are fairly middle of the road, coming in at about the average for a AAA title. If you're comfortable with lowering the graphics settings then a mid-range, older graphics card with at least 2GB VRAM should be enough, paired with a quad-core processor. Should you want to max the graphics in Fade to Silence then that's a different story. You're going to need a capable $800+ PC to meet these specs, including a modern mid-tier GPU with at least 4GB VRAM.
