If youre going with the minimum settings, you should still be able to get 1080p and 60 frames per second on the games lowest settings. If youre shooting for a higher FPS rate and sharper graphics, the recommended settings will let you play at 1440p and 60 FPS.
Youll surely need all the PC power you can get while youre shotgunning demons in the face. Remember that youll be doing it while listening to composer Mick Gordons heavy metal choir, featuring the harsh vocal talents of numerous artists, including the late Nature Ganganbaigal (Tengger Cavalary), James Dorton (Black Crown Initiate), Sven de Caluwe (Aborted), Tony Campos (Static X and Ministry), Linzy Rae (The Anchor) and more.
