Modern warfare shooters are a dime-a-dozen, so why not jump behind the “wheel” of a ten-ton behemoth and incorporate strategy to decimate the enemy?

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Those recommended specs are pretty high.

Good thing I have 16GB of ram and two 980s 4GB

If anybody has a hand-me-down, I'd be very grateful.

I can run most of this. I've got Windows 7 64-bit, an i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. What lets my computer down though is the graphics card. I'll probably be able to play this on medium settings - maybe high.

Having seen the screenshots, i am very surprised by those recommended specs.
It's either going to look much prettier on PC, or it's very badly optimized.

Seems like this is also another one of those games i'll need to get on disc, because fuck downloading 20-30gb.

Or they are just BSing the specs again. Every Bethesda game runs well on all kinds of toasters and potatoes.

Don't do it, it's a bethesda game which means you'll NEED the unofficial patches to truly enjoy it, while the higher framerates will feel nicer. Shit, the console (~) is absolutely invaluable in these early days. All those times you get stuck on the scenery on the PS4/Xbone and need to reload vs '[~]tcl[enter]'. When the quest glitches and doesn't give you an item 'player.additem [x] 1', etc.
What GPU do you have now? If i end up upgrading before this comes out you can have my 280X for cheap

That's the thing though, in the past they were much more vague.
'dual core 2ghz+', 'quad core', 'DX9 with 512mb VRAM' etc.
The fact that this time around they're specifically talking about high end gear worries me.

I can't remember what my GPU is, sorry. I'd have to check on either one of the older threads I left here on the PC forum or when I get home onto my computer. I do appreciate the possible offer, though! Smile

I could try and get my pre-order swapped from PS4 to PC. Yes, I'm that guy - but I wanted a Fallout bobble head and lunch box. Sad

Hey, as a bonus you'll save $10, too.

Also by creeping on your build it looks like you have a 560 Ti unless you upgraded since, that should still be enough to play it with reasonable settings even if you don't upgrade your card.

In the interest of transparency, the reason i'm selling my 280X is because it kind've goes against my build. I carefully selected all the power efficient components, put it all in a sound proofed case and spent $70 on fans to ensure it's quiet and cool.
The 280X was a temporary measure until AMD released the 380X which would match up with my build much better, but because AMD are being a bunch of assholes it seems i'll need to bend my morals again and end up with a 970.
That's not to say the 280X is bad. It's a vapor-x which means it can be overclocked to the moon and still not go above 80 degrees, and it still does 1080p@60 in GTA V, The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, etc on a mixture of very high / ultra settings, but as part as the punishment for that it uses a fair whack of power and produces, to be honest, an absolute fuckton of heat. I was looking at selling it to you for $175, but if you have the money to spend you would be better off with the 970.

Well, I can safely say that I'm not going to get this at launch. What I've done with every Bethesda game since Oblivion is played them on console first, then bought the GotY/Ultimate Editions on PC at a discount. This allowed me to enjoy the games the way they're meant to be played without the temptations of console commands, and gave the developers and the community a significant amount of time to fix things so I would be able to justify the repurchase on PC later.

In this case, I sadly don't own a supported console, and I may actually need to wait for a mod that optimizes the game for PCs below the minimum system requirements like mine.

I'm 90% sure you'll be able to play it with your 7850, i think the minimum specs might be a bit higher than they need to be. I'd at least give it a chance before i went and did something like bought a PS4/Xbone.

I did the same thing with Fallout 3, actually. Same goes with Skyrim!

With Fallout 3, I originally played it on PS3 and then I bought the Game of the Year edition one year later for my laptop (at the time). For its time my laptop was pretty sweet, able to run Fallout 3 on ultra settings at 60+ FPS so it was great.

I got Skyrim for PS3, and then later on down the track I bought the Legendary Edition (essentially the Skyrim GotY) on PC for a much better price. I could run Skyrim on Ultra settings with a fantastic frame rate, no problem.

Fallout 4 though might be a bit trickier... I have all the necessary specs to run it but I do believe my graphics card is what lets me down. I think I'll upgrade my card when I return from my holiday in America, so I'll look into it January/February 2016.

I could buy Fallout 4 on PS4, and then get the inevitable GotY edition for PC later.

GTX 970 reporting in.

I have a feeling this game will be somewhat underwhelming in regards to visuals, but I want it anyway.
