If you don’t know the specs of your current rig, please take a look at our guide on looking up your PC specifications to see if it will manage to run the game. At the foot of this page, we also discuss what PC builds we would suggest to run the game on different settings and achieve decent FPS.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Humankind?

If you want to run Humankind at 1080p resolution on the lowest settings only, we would suggest picking a $600 self-build or above in order to run the game at a decent FPS. If you want to pt the graphical options and resolution to the max though, then we suggest a $800 build or above.

If you really don’t fancy building your own PC, then one of our pre-builds for under $800 should manage to run Humankind on the lower settings at 1080p with a respectable frame rate. For those with a craving for the highest settings and resolutions, however, then something like our $1000 pre-built PC would be more suitable.
