South Park: The Fractured But Whole PC requirements aren’t too demanding

3 min read

South Park FBW (2)

Your PC may be capable of running games at 4K resolutions and can deliver on fancy terms like ambient delusion and aunty alias, but can it give you un-jaggy farts and the full high definition horror of Man-Bear-Pig? CAN IT? I certainly hope so, because Ubisoft is finally ready to unleash the next South Park game in around two and half month’s time. Or you’ll boot that game up and be presented with a screen for Terrance and Phillip’s Treasure Hunt. Well played Ubisoft, well played.

South Park: The Stick of Truth wasn’t exactly the Crysis of demanding PC specs, and neither is its upcoming sequel The Fractured But Whole (giggity). Here’s what you’ll need to have running if you want your PC to respect your authoritah:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    So much computing power for what?

    That’s the day before my sisters wedding… guess I’m going to have to let her know I can’t make it anymore.

      Or, you could always just take the game with you to the reception. See who is truly the fart master of your family.

    an i5 for a 2D game? Do they know what optimization means?

  • Fionn Murphy

    Yeah I can’t play it since it requires an i5. Pentium – i5 is a pretty big jump in processing power
