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.

Fade to Silence Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 290
  • HDD: 30GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Fade to Silence Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480
  • HDD: 30GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

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.

Looks interesting, and the Steam forum seems to have a good amount of constructive criticism and a dev that engages with the community. Both are pretty rare on Steam these days, so I'll be keeping my eye on this for sure and probably snap it up once it gets a bit further along in development.

R9 290 is far superior than gtx 760, is it better optimized for nvidia then?

Yep the R9 290 is far superior indeed compared to the gtx 760. However the minimum gpu spec are actually: gtx 760 or R9 270 and not R9 290 :)

Look at those system requirements?
What? The devs never heard of a little thing called optimization?

Eh? Those are pretty average system requirements for an open world title these days.
