The requirements cover a wide range of target resolutions and expected framerates on different presets. If you’re looking to play the game at 1080p with a 60 FPS target at Medium settings, you’ll need something like an RTX 3060 paired with a Ryzen 5 3600. If you want to go higher and play the game at 4K though, you’ll need something much beefier, like the RTX 4080.
