100 post-apocalyptic psychopaths drop into a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. Only one can make it alive. Fear the Wolves is that familiar battle royale formula we've come to know and either love or hate, this time with  STALKER-tinged twist. The 25km2 map is riddled with anomalies and mutated wildlife, and the only way to succeed is to win the race to the extraction helicopter. But forget about winning your 100-person deathmatch for now, in order to even stand a chance you'll need to meet the minimum specs for Fear the Wolves.

Fear the Wolves Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory

  • HDD: 16GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Dust off your DDR4, Fear the Wolves is a bit of a demanding hog when it comes to system memory. You'll be needing 8GB RAM as an absolute minimum. Fortunately, the rest of the minimum specs for Fear the Wolves are a little more forgiving. A very modest dual-core processor will do the job, paired with a 1GB VRAM DirectX 11 graphics card. A Geforce GTX 650 Ti or Radeon R7 260 will do, but modern gamers will be fine with a GTX 1050 or a Radeon RX 550.

Those looking to max out Fear the Wolves will face more of an uphill battle. With 100-players dropping into the map, things could get a little hectic at times. You're going to want excess performance in order to prevent framerate drops during those crucial moments. A 4GB video card such as the GeForce GTX 970 or the Radeon R9 390 should do the job, although we suspect a GTX 1060 6GB or a Radeon RX 580 may be required for more stable frame rates.
