Back 4 Blood Final PC Requirements Confirmed!

Back 4 Blood is set for release on October 12th, and I daresay that many people are hoping that this will represent a strong spiritual successor to the amazingly popular Left 4 Dead franchise. I mean, it’s not as if Valve has shown any interest in making a new one, is it? Then again, they’re well known for having an apparent fear of the number 3. – For those of you looking to try it out on your PC, however, you might be wondering if your hardware has the necessary grunt for some zombie killing. Well, following an official update to PCGameBenchmark, we now have the full, final, and confirmed PC requirements for Back 4 Blood. And the good news is, they’re surprisingly benign!

Back 4 Blood – PC Requirements!

Although we have copied the full system requirements below, the short version is that Back 4 Blood would appear to be entirely happy to run on practically anything that can, just about, quantify itself as a gaming system. Given that the Nvidia 970 is listed in the ‘recommended’ section for graphics cards, this suggests that the vast majority of you will not have any issues in getting this to run both with nicely refined graphics and silky smooth framerates.

MINIMUM:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor: i5-6600 (3.3 GHz) OR AMD Ryzen 5 2600 (3.4 GHz)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 1050 Ti or AMD® Radeon™ RX 570
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 40 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: 1080p / 60fps / Low Quality Settings


RECOMMENDED:

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 (2.8 GHz) OR AMD Ryzen 7 1800X (3.6 GHz)
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 970 or AMD® Radeon™ RX 590
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 40 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: 1080p / 60fps / High Quality Settings

Let’s just hope though that they got rid of those ‘racist’ zombies.

What Do We Think?

Despite Back 4 Blood being a brand new gaming release, I’ll freely admit that I’m very surprised that it appears to be capable of running well on what I would politely describe as notably outdated tech. I mean, just look at those recommended specs… 1st-gen Ryzen and a POLARIS graphics card? – I can only hope that this means that the title has been amazingly optimised, but I’m also mildly concerned that this might mean that Back 4 Blood looks like a 4-year-old game!

Set for release on October 12th, however, if you want to learn more about it, you can check out the official Steam Store website via the link here! – Albeit, for £49.99, I think I’ll personally be waiting for a sale!
