We are only three weeks away from Dragon Ball FighterZ’s release, and fans’ excitement for the game has pretty much reached fever pitch. And Bandai Namco just wants to twist the proverbial knife, by releasing a new trailer that showcases Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, or as he is more awkwardly known, SSGSS (Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan) Vegeta. You can check out the trailer below:
But that’s not the only bit of good news, because the developers ArcSys has finally clarified the system requirements for the PC port of the game, hopefully allaying the fears of people with less than 16GB of system RAM and 4GB of VRAM (and the fears of people who don’t want a lazy, unoptimized port). According to the new announcement, the actual minimum requirements of Dragon Ball FighterZ for Steam are:
- Windows 7/8/10 64 bit
- AMD FX-4350 4.2 Ghz/Intel Core i5-3470 3.20 Ghz
- 4 GB RAM
- Radeon HD 6870, GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB
- DirectX 11
…while the new system requirements are still a little bit higher compared to Guilty Gear XrD games (which is understandable because FighterZ is on the Unreal 4 engine as opposed to Unreal 3), it is perfectly in line with what people would consider low-to-midrange gaming build. The CPU requirement may seem scary but keep in mind that both examples are a few generations old, and that even current gen i3s could hang with them. There’s also the fact that it’s common for developers to exaggerate the CPU requirements for their games, so even if you have a lowly Pentium G4560 like yours truly, there’s still a chance that you can run this game. In the worst case scenario, you can always take advantage of Steam’s refund policy.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch on all the intended platforms – PS4, Xbox One, and Steam (Sorry Switch owners, make some noise and maybe you’ll get a port as well) – on January 26, 2018.
