For Honor PC Requirements Revealed

For Honor is one of the most anticipated games and its launch is scheduled sooner than you might think. As of February 14, you and your friends can fully enjoy this game, but at what cost? As a team-based hack-and-slash game set in Medieval times, For Honor demands high taxes and, in terms of horse-power, you would need to have an i3 processor, GTX750ti and at least 4 GB of system RAM. This would be decent enough to play the game at 30 frames per second but, before you get too excited, it’s worth pointing out that this is for 720p. To be able to actually achieve 60 frames per second and run it at 1080p, you would have to go with an Intel Core i5-2500K as well as a slightly powerful GTX760, and twice as much RAM, which goes up to 8 GB (More on the specifics at the very end of this article).

For Honor is out on February 14 and it lets you pave the road with dead bodies by playing as a Knight, Samurai or a Viking. Each of the three factions will have four classes, along with the promise of more classes after the initial launch window. The game already graced us with a closed beta at the end of January and we were quite taken with this wonderful melee mauler and were able to truly appreciate the unique aspect of the team-based massacre.

With the unexpected leak for the Season Pass we managed to find out early on that those willing to shell out money up front will gain access to six new warriors one week prior to the global release for all For Honor players. Alongside the exclusive right for an early access on all other future content, you would take advantage of a lucrative in-game gear such as three scavenger crates, six outfits, sunbeam emote and a 30-day Champion Status (more experience points and loot). Be brave enough by purchasing the Gold Edition, for outstanding 100 bucks, and get both the game and TSP in one neat package. The Gold Edition will open its doors to additional ornamentations for helmets, special effects and 7-day Champion Status.

And with that being said, here’s the minimum and recommended specs!

For a 720p30 experience you’ll need:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU:: Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX660/GTX750ti/GTX950/GTX1050 with 2 GB VRAM or more | AMD Radeon HD6970/HD7870/R9 270/R9 370/RX460 with 2 GB VRAM or more
  • RAM: 4GB

For a 1080p60 experience you will need the following:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K | AMD FX-6350 or equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX680/GTX760/GTX970/GTX1060 with 2 GB VRAM or more | AMD Radeon R9 280X/R9 380/RX470 with 2 GB VRAM or more
  • RAM: 8GB
