Square Enix's popular Life is Strange video game series continues on as the next chapter launches later today. Despite being a relatively simple art style, they have always been a bit more demanding than expected, especially when considering they are mostly aimed at 30fps performance. Thankfully, the upcoming entry doesn't seem to be too demanding, and owners of modern mid-range hardware should be happy.

However, if you want to play Life is Strange: True Colors at its best settings, including 4K, Cinematic Quality presets, and ray tracing, you will need a pretty beefy setup even for 30fps performance. At least these games don't exactly need 60fps to play well, and are easily enjoyable at half the frame rate.

So let's jump in and take a look at the official Life is Strange True Colors system requirements...

Life is Strange: True Colors minimum system requirements - 1080p

Life is Strange: True Colors recommended system requirements - 1080p

Life is Strange: True Colors Maximum system requirements - 4K / 30fps / Max graphics + Ray Tracing

In order to run Life is Strange: True Colors on High graphics settings your PC will need at least a GTX 1060 or RX 590 graphics card paired with either a Core i5-3470 or FX-8350 processor. You will also need at least 8GB of RAM to meet the recommended requirements, which should then deliver 30fps performance at 1080p resolution.

Life is Strange: True Colors needs a GPU that is at least as powerful as a GTX 750 Ti or HD 7790 along with a Core i5-2300 or Phenom II X4 965 CPU in order to meet the minimum system requirements. This setup should then deliver 30fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution. You will also need at least 6GB of system memory.

Looking over all the specs listed above, we suggest at least a 3 year old PC in order to play Life is Strange: True Colors at its best.

Why is "30fps" a thing again? Maybe it's just me, but a few games recently have 30fps as a listed target for specs and it makes me wonder if everyone suddenly forgot that it's not what we target on PC..? If they insist on having 30 - sure, but why not have 60fps next to it...?
