Square Enix have revealed the official PC system requirements for their upcoming action RPG Forspoken and, they are quite demanding. 

You'll need a beefy PC to max out Forspoken and play at above 60 FPS, judging by the game's official PC system specs, which have been shared by the publisher Square Enix . The minimum specs don't look that scary, although, some would argue that graphics cards like GTX 1060 should be just barely enough for 720p and 30 FPS.

Moving forward to 1440p is where things start to get quite beefy. Square Enix recommends RTX 3070 and i7-8700K if you want to play the game at 30 FPS. Both the GPU and CPU mentioned here are still capable of serious gaming, especially at higher frame rates than 30 so this might give us a hint at the game's overall optimisation. 

The specs are quite detailed, revealing target resolution and frame rate, which is always a nice addition and we wish more developers followed this trend. You can check them out below.

All in all, Forspoken is another next-gen game that seems very demanding. Recently, we got PC specs for the upcoming Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy which also requires beefy hardware. 

This will certainly become a trend as more games are released this year and in the near future.
