Vampyr System Requirements Could Take a Bite Out of Your PC

It's a crying shame we've never got a sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade -Bloodlines, but in the meantime, Life is Strange developer Dontnod is hoping to fill the void with Vampyr, a narrative-driven action-RPG set in 1918 London that places the emphasis on player choice. There's plenty of potential in this one, but will you need a human blood sacrifice to the dark gods to run it? Here are the official Vampyr PC system specs.

If there's one thing you can bank on, it's that any game published by Focus Home Interactive treading the line of average AAA system requirements almost perfectly, and Vampyr is no different. Down at Vampyr's minimum system requirements, we see a couple of graphics cards that are the equivalent of the PS4 and the Xbox One - either a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon R7 370 2GB. These will be fine for playing Vampyr at solid frame rates on Low graphics, but you will miss out on some of the nicer effects.

The recommended requirements for Vampyr, meanwhile, are pretty much geared towards mid to high-end PC gamers.4GB VRAM is necessary for the best visuals, paired with a surprisingly high-end hexa-core CPU. This seems like Dontnod might be overegging the Vampyr system requirements a bit and a decent quad-core processor isn't going to run into any trouble.

Lastly, the 16GB RAM requirement. Unless something's gone drastically wrong, Vampyr is never going to make use of 16GB RAM. You may want to have 12GB just to be on the safe side, but it's difficult to see 8GB users struggling to run Vampyr.

For those lucky enough to be shooting for 1440p or 4K, the good news is that the only change to Vampyr's system requirements is the graphics card. 16GB RAM, a Core i7-3930K or Ryzen 5 1600 CPU, and 20GB HDD space will be fine even for 4K. However, the graphics card requirements obviously go up steepling. A Geforce GTX 1070 or Radeon RX Vega 56 is required for 60fps at 1440p, while the mighty GTX 1080 Ti is needed for 60fps at 4K. AMD doesn't offer a single-GPU solution that can match the 1080 Ti, although the Radeon RX Vega 56 is likely to be able to run Vampyr at 4K with a mix of Medium and High graphics settings.

Ah, and if all that isn't enough for, Dontnod has also sent along a bloodcurdling new story trailer for Vampyr. There look to be a few minor narrative spoilers in there so tread with caution if you want to go into the game fresh at launch.
