Last week, Epic revealed Quantic Dream would be bringing a trio of its games to PC, exclusively through the Epic Games Store, including Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls. Detroit: Become Human is one of the best-looking games I've ever laid my eyes on, so this is well poised to be a visual showcase on PC. 

Detroit: Become Human Twice Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon R7 370
  • API: Vulkan
  • HDD: 45GB Available Hard Drive Space

Detroit: Become Human Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2700K 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 8 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
  • API: Vulkan
  • HDD: 45GB Available Hard Drive Space

We'll start with the CPU demands, which are thankfully on the lower end of the scale. Detroit was a PS4 exclusive and the PS4's CPU is the sort of thing found in supermarket clearance bins. That means even relatively old CPUs should be able to run Detroit: Become Human without a hitch, provided they've got a decently high clock speed.

Things take a different twist with the suggested GPUs for Detroit though, which veers from very low-end with the GTX 660 or R7 370 all the way up to the mighty GTX 1080 and Vega 64 for those who want to play Detroit: Become Human with all its bells and whistles on. Scaleable visuals would appear to be key here and will be crucial to running Detroit on lower-end graphics cards.

Its slow pace is probably going to help it in terms of performance as well, although you're still going to need a meaty PC to get Detroit looking its absolute best.

And, lastly, a rare treat - Detroit: Become Human will run on the Vulkan graphics API rather than DirectX. Games that support Vulkan are few and far between still, but performance is typically excellent.

One slight caveat to all of this is Quantic Dream has provided three identical sets of system requirements for all three of games. This could hint at placeholder specs, or there is the possibility the older games are being given a bit of a visual makeover.
