Quantic Dream have revealed the official system requirements for the upcoming PC ports of Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human. The specs are the same for all three games and require a beefy Nvidia GPU for high settings.

In a surprising announcement at GDC 2019, Epic Games and Quantic Dream revealed that three PlayStation 4 exclusives are being ported to PC, exclusively to Epic Games Store.

Today, 27 March 2019, we have a first look at the minimum and recommended system requirements for Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human that now have their pages on Epic Store.

The minimum specs look pretty reasonable, but if you're looking to push the in-game graphics settings to the limit, you'll need a pretty beefy GPU as you can notice in the full specs below.

Starting with the minimum specs, Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human will require at least i5-2400 clocked at 3.4GHz or equivalent AMD part. For the GPU, you'll need at least Nvidia GTX 660 and 4GB of RAM.

Unfortunately, we'll have to assume that these specs are required to push the games on the lowest settings at the 1080p resolution as Epic and Quantic Dream did not include specific details like target frame rate and other.

As for the recommended specifications, this is where things start to get a bit demanding. CPU is once again a pretty cheap Intel part - I7-2700K, but the listed GPU is Nvidia's GTX 1080 that is more than enough for 1440p gaming at 60 FPS. You'll also need 12 GB of RAM and the Detroit: Become Human page also reveals that the game will run on Vulkan API, not DirectX.

Again, we don't have specifics but the listed hardware is probably enough for high settings and possibly 60 FPS on 1080p resolution. It's also possible that these components are required for the 4K resolution which would explain the GPU requirement.

It's interesting that all three games share the same specs even though Heavy Rain is nowhere near the graphical fidelity of Detroit: Become Human. You can find the full specs below:

Minimum Requirements

  • Intel i5-2400 3.4GHz or equivalent
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Nvidia GTX 660 or equivalent 2GB VRAM
  • DirectX  11, Vulkan (Detroit: Become Human)

Recommended Requirements

  • Intel i7-2700K or equivalent
  • 12GB RAM
  • Nvidia GTX 1080 or equivalent 8GB VRAM
