Godfall System Requirements

Can I Run Godfall?

As a first step to figuring out whether you can play Godfall on your machine, you need to know what components you have with a notable emphasis on the CPU, GPU, and RAM. These widely determine if and how well the game will run.

If you need help doing this, you can consult our easy to follow, step-by-step guide right here

From there, simply compare your findings to the minimum and recommended specifications for Godfall we’ve compiled below to check whether your gaming rig is up to the task. As a general rule, we suggest aiming to meet or surpass the recommended requirements to avoid any performance issues. If your hardware falls short, then you’ll need to consider an upgrade.

To make the process easier and take some of the tedium out of the whole task of checking system requirements, we are developing a tool designed to automatically scan your machine, then list a detailed breakdown of all the components. It’s still cooking away in the great WePC forge at the moment, but rest assured we’ll be sure to publish an update once it’s fit for purpose and ready for our readers to use.

Godfall Game Details

  • Release Date: November 12th, 2020 (PC, PlayStation 5)
  • System Requirements: High
  • Genre: Action-role playing game
  • Developer: Counterplay Games
  • Publisher: Gearbox Software

Confirmed as the first official PlayStation 5 launch title at The Game Awards 2019, Godfall is an action role-playing game from Counterplay Games, the studio responsible for the digital collectible card turn-based strategy hybrid game Duelyst.

Termed a “loot-slasher” by publisher Gearbox Publishing, Godfall is a third-person title that sees players engage with a fantasy world of knights, arcane magic, towering enemies, and looming era-appropriate architecture. The world itself is divided into elemental realms, including earth, water, air, fire, and spirit.

Players select an initial character from three heroes, each one the last remnants of the exalted Knight’s Order entrusted with the gargantuan task of avoiding the apocalypse and maintaining their world as they know it.

Keeping with Gearbox tradition, much of the game will center around defeating enemies to secure loot to improve weapons and armor known as Valorplates to then take on even more powerful foes.

The combat is melee-focused with what Counterplay Games calls high-impact action. Weapons will range from heavy to light weapons with everything in between to give players a wealth of options as well as Augments that can be slotted to change the way each weapon plays.

Although Godfall can be played solo, co-op is very much encouraged with a quick join feature and the ability to team up in three-player co-op play.

Aside from bringing a brand new IP inspired by the likes of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation saga and Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive, Godfall will showcase the full power of the next-generation PlayStation 5 console while simultaneously coming to PC.

Godfall Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or Intel Core i7-8700
  • GPU: AMD Radeon 5700 XT 8GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 11GB
  • RAM: 16GB

Optimal Hardware Suggestions

We estimate that with the minimum system requirements, you can comfortably aim for 60 FPS with a resolution of 720p with the settings on low to medium. Neither the CPU or GPU are unusually excessive, but then again, don’t expect the game to truly shine on what is effectively the bare minimum to get it running in a just about palatable if imperfect, state.

Moving up to the recommended system requirements, the performance jump should be notable, and the specifications follow suit (note the 16 GB of RAM). You can expect to net above 60 FPS at 1080p with the settings maxed out. It’s unclear how 1440p and 4K will factor in, but the demands will invariably move upwards when pushing for those higher resolutions.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

As above, we recommend our $1000 build as a firm foundation to play Godfall. The rig packs a lot of power for the price thanks to the selection of cost-effective components. We anticipate maxing out Godfall settings to reach 1080p with 60 FPS or more.

It features an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GPU, 16 of DDR4 3600 MHz RAM, and a vast 1 TB SSD. Not discounting aesthetics, we’ve also managed to squeeze in a stylish NZXT H510 case into the budget.

If you’d rather future proof the build somewhat or aim for 4K, then take a gander at either our $1500 build featuring a GeForce RTX 2080 Super or our $2000 build with Intel Core i9-9900KF and GeForce RTX 2080 Super.

  1. This is great. I got it free with the purchase of my Rx 5500xt, and can’t wait to play it at Christmas. I’m planning on using windows 8.1 because I don’t really like windows 10, so I hope it supports 8.1. This game looks awesome!
