Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is a new action RPG that fully released on the PC a few days ago. Powered by CRYENGINE, this indie game pushes some of the best graphics we’ve seen in an action RPG. In fact, the game can – at some times – look as good as the pre-release footage of Diablo 4.
In order to capture the following screenshots, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3600Mhz. Naturally, we’ve paired this machine with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti. We also used Windows 10 64-bit and the GeForce 442.19 driver.
Now I should note that this is a game from a small team that has been in Early Access for a while. As such, it’s really fascinating witnessing this game pushing the graphical boundaries of action RPGs.
In terms of performance, our NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti was almost able to push a 60fps experience on Very High settings in 4K. The reason I used the word “almost” is because there are some rare scenes in which our framerate dropped to 50fps. Still, and despite those drops, the game felt really smooth on our G-Sync monitor.
For comparison purposes, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem runs a bit slower but looks significantly better than Darksiders: Genesis.
So yeah, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is a bit more demanding than your usual action RPGs. However, the game does look stunning so I guess it somehow justifies these high GPU requirements.
