Can I Run A Plague Tale Innocence On My Computer?

A Plague Tale: Innocence is a moderately demanding game. Although most gaming PCs will be able to run it on the lowest graphical settings at 1080p at a minimum, higher graphical settings and resolutions will need more powerful PCs. Official minimum and recommended system requirements can be further down this page, though we suggest you assume more power is needed in each case, just to be sure.

If you don’t know how to look up the specifications of your PC to check against either set of requirements, have a gander at our how to look up your PC specs guide. If your current computer doesn’t meet the system requirements, then please have a look at the pre-built and self-build gaming PCs we have listed at the foot of this page.
