The time is almost upon us, as the spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead series is officially launching in a couple weeks time. Developer Turtle Rock Studios gave us some system requirements before the official Open Beta, but that only included the recommended specs. Now they have been updated with minimum specs too, but don't worry it hasn't changed much.

If you saw the original Back 4 Blood Beta specs, then there really isn't much difference here apart from revealing the minimum requirements. None of the recommended specs have changed so if you managed to play the Beta fine its likely the final release will be similar too. Thankfully, the developers have also revealed the performance expectations for each tier of specs.

So here are the official Back 4 Blood PC system requirements...

Back 4 Blood recommended system requirements - 1080p / 60fps / Low graphics settings

Back 4 Blood recommended system requirements - 1080p / 60fps / High graphics settings

Back 4 Blood will need at least a GTX 970 or RX 590 graphics card in order to meet the recommended system requirements, achieving 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. This should then be paired with either a Core i5-8400 or Ryzen 7 1800X processor as well as 12GB of RAM.

Looking at the minimum system requirements you will need a GTX 1050 Ti or RX 570 GPU along with a Core i5-6600 or Ryzen 5 2600 CPU, which will then deliver 60fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution. You will also need at least 8GB of system memory.

Overall, looking at all the specs above, Back 4 Blood will need around a 7 year old PC in order to run smoothly.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Back 4 Blood System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Back 4 Blood GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Back 4 Blood Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

These requirements are higher that the game needs. It runs great even on older systems.

I tried it on much less specifications, they exaggerate a lot, the Phenom II X4 955 is 11 years old and the gtx 960 card, I got frames from 40 to 75, 1080p they want to impose new devices, many tried it and the videos are available in youtube

Well, seeing it's marked to go on 60 fps as stable as posible if you go from 45-75 depending on the zone and not in overall then there is a reason why its higher. Plus, it's something that always has been, to put requirements a bit above the real ones needed in order to be 120%sure the game will runn and that they no sell a product subject to refund because it doesnt work as intended in the machine they said it would.

No my friend, you are partly right and partly wrong, we know that games are using new technologies and processors have evolved, but what do you say about a game like Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, running on Phenom II X4 955 and Gtx 960 with precision 1080 over 30 comfortably 720p avg 58 , and with the Ryzen 3200 and 3400 in the VGA, it is quite difficult with 720p resolution, isn't that confusing? , also far cry 5 : more than 30 fps ultra ???? 1080p

Overall that's the rule on making them run on more than the recommended. You go for some of them to even go to 720p, I am sticking to what they aim 60fps, 1080p and the hardware to move that as intended, not below with tricks which always happened.


Just don't see how your point goes against mine? if anything it reinforces it because you have to go over less resolution to aim the fps they marked . You set different settings for a less powerful hardware that they intended.

True what you are saying, now I understand you well, I don't blame them for online games, but story games and they exaggerate them, the problem is that they always put those instructions SSE 4.1 and 4.2, but when overridden by someone who is an expert in this, you find the game works acceptable above 30 Quite comfortably, some developers do not put it as an example of the game new world, F1 2021, Marvel Avengers, Crysis Remastered, Mafia DE, Bloodhunt Ea, nine to Five Ea


Games that make you confused like tales of arise bring very acceptable frames to play over 50 frames


Formula 1 2020 brings 60 frames


Sniper Ghost Warriors Contracts 2, with 720 fetching an average of 58 frames and 1080 fetching 38


argami 2 also brings frames close to 60 fixed on High


Lemnis Gate also brings over 50 with Medium and 1080


I'm going to tell you something I'm not a fan of old processors, but it's time to actually change and move to something new that will last at least 5 years - but companies need to be clear about those instructions they put, because a company like Ubisoft only wants money, why because - when they released far cry 5 said it won't support core 2 quad and phenoms, but after the pressure they responded, they released a patch, you know why, because they know far cry 5 doesn't live up to those requirements they set, because I simply got 30 frames comfortably with the ultra settings

I do agree in what you say, Now i think i understand you better, but the thing is that you see it from a purely technical viewpoint where it does indeed makes sense. Thing is they do so with a 80% weight on a Financial + Legal standpoint not caring too much about the technical when it comes to set those requirements.


After all as you said, when tampered with it by an expert you can do way more and wont discuss that some practices do indeed have to change. But somehow can't really blame them either for wanting to wash their hands with above requirements in order to A) save costs (i guess something like what you propose would need lot more polishing and thus money, they have to find the middle point from going to a wide range of costumers and invest in the polishing since if you go too much on polishing it wont matter how wide is your clientele since its probably you wont make up to the cost or mos likely not gain as much as expected and thus not being worth the trouble) and B) Legal issues, if people start having too much problems from a hardware they indicated the refunds would go through the roof and don't see them going too handle all that trouble if they can avoid it.


Once this is said, i have to point out that there is no bigger pleasure than to see if your system will run X game and get a hard no from every page to just try it and see that to your surprise it works more or less flawlessly, it's a feeling that i had more times that i ever expected in my old system so, you bear truth too.


PS: on the A) point remember, the more you achieve [polishing in this case] the harder it gets [costly] to get a minimal improvement over time. So the cost and effort grow exponentially while the profit = performance on that lower harware grows in a logarithmic rate.

Now I understood you well too, everything you summarized in your note, just it's a simple thing, just remove those instructions window SSE 4.1 and SSE 4.2, and I also forgot something that AVX is causing problems for many devices including new ones Example of that has been removed In Cyberbugs 2077, Horizon Zero Dawn, and even Mass Effect Legendry, as I told you I'm not sticking with my old device, but I want them to get rid of these old tricks, the guy I told you about, Luther, said: I can do as well as I can. They do in the patches they release but I just bypass those instructions, Ubisoft games because of their engine causing problems I raise the performance by about 10 percent


As for the rest of the games, I just skip the instructions


I hope you understood me, it's time to change to Ryzen 3500X or 3600 or even 5600 and maybe also to the new intel, just adding a game like F1 2020 gives you a window saying your device doesn't meet the minimum requirements, do you want to continue, yes Or not, that's what I want. It's not something difficult for them, but there is a purpose behind it
