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 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2130 3.4GHz or AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 Ti or Radeon HD R7 260
  • HDD: 16GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

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
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390
  • 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.

I never played Battle Royale games before, not even that ugly PUBG. Is it worth getting? (Assumed that the optimization is good)

If optimization and gameplay are good I might get it, I've been looking for a stable Battle Royal game since PUBG is a complete mess. With the lore of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., this actually sounds interesting and it sounds like they might pull it off. I'm curious to know how mutants will play in with players.


I'm actually excited about this: Anomalies and mutants make this more than just a BR game, it adds more tension to the survival aspect. This idea suggests that the world will be more lively, dynamic, and will reactive to the player's presence. :) I'll definitely keep my eyes out for this; any specific release date?

well if a game requires 8-16gb of RAM I wouldn't say it bodes well for optimalisation.

So a new modern game should only use 2 GB of RAM if they were optimized? Do I understand that right?
Of course new games demand more hardware-wise.

I have yet to find a game that uses more than 9GB of RAM. Sony Vegas is pretty much the only app that uses all of my RAM. So 16GB as recommended is either BS or bad optimization.

i'd say a modern game uses up to 8gb of ram, 16 is ridiculous.

Hmmm ,100 persons on a 25km^2 map seem a low , PUBGs Erangel map has 8km^2 map an it feels empty in certain spots and for most of the time , i understand FTW will have Wolves and anomalies in it but it still will be huge map

Erangel is 64km2, so it's quite a bit smaller than that
