Gotham Knights’ recommended PC system requirements are finally out. A day before launch, developer WB Games Montréal revealed the system requirements for running the upcoming open-world superhero RPG. And it’s very demanding – begging for an Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card to run the game at full-HD 1080p at 60fps. Furthermore, the studio also confirmed the unlock time for Gotham Knights, starting at 12 a.m. local time, on PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. Meanwhile, the PC version launches later at 10:30. PM IST in India / 10AM Pacific Time in the US.
Last week, WB Games Montreal reveal the minimum PC system requirements to run Knight of Gotham at the lowest settings, still leaning towards the heavier side. Later, executive producer Fleur Marty confirmed on the game’s official Discordthose Gotham Knights will be locked at 30fps on the current generation PS5 and Xbox Series S / X. Unlike most modern console ports, the game won’t include a Performance mode toggle, allowing for smooth frames at the expense of reducing graphics fidelity.
“Due to the types of features we have in our games, like providing a completely untethered co-op experience in our highly detailed open world, it’s not as simple as reducing the difficulty level. resolution and higher FPS,” said Marty. This update comes after the studio also canceled work on the final generation PS4 and Xbox one in the hope of “providing players with the best possible gaming experience.”
