Man, things are getting ugly on Bethesda’s blog. Some PC gamers decided to express their frustration towards The Evil Within’s PC recommended requirements and Bethesda’s Community Manager has been doing his best to calm the crowd down, while at the same time provide new information about the PC version.
According to Bethesda’s Community Manager, The Evil Within PC is intended as a next-gen experience, basically confirming the fact that it will be based on the current-gen version of the game.
But what about the game’s minimum requirements? Well, Bethesda’s Community Manager claimed that the company does not want to share any because they want to gamers to ‘experience it the way it was meant to be played’
Here is the direct quote from Bethesda’s CM:
“Talking with folks on the team, you can give it a go with 2 GB VRAM, but it’s definitely not recommended. As mentioned in the blog post, we’re not posting minimum requirements, because we’re looking to share requirements that show the game the way it was meant to be played.”
Bethesda’s CM claimed that the development team hopes to support Crossfire and SLI, and is working on this. Now that will be really interesting as The Evil Within is powered by id Tech 5; an engine that has major compatibility issues with multi-GPUs (Wolfenstein: The New Order still does not support multi-GPUs).
The Evil Within releases next month and we’ll be sure to put it to the test!
