Facebook have finally revealed how powerful your rig will need to be to play the new Medal of Honor title, Above and Beyond. Word of warning: running it will be no small feat.
Over here at VR Final, we cannot wait for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond to finally launch on PC VR platforms. We don't even have long to wait now, considering it's set to launch next week: on the 11th of December, 2020.
The game, which is an Oculus Studios title, is set to launch on the Oculus Rift & Quest 2. However, PC VR fans will be pleased to hear that it'll also release on Steam.
But how powerful a computer will you need to run the title? We've been wondering that for a while, actually. Well, Oculus Studios producer Mike Doran has finally released the recommended PC specs and... honestly... they're a little higher than I'd been expecting.
Since I've gotten so many questions, here is the recommended spec for the game. YES, this is a high spec. That doesn't mean that you can't run it on lower hardware, but you might notice some more hitching / framerate dips.
CPU: Intel i7 9700K (or comparable AMD)
RAM: 16GB DDR4
Graphics Card: NVIDIA RTX 2080
And whatever you do, please make sure you use an SSD to play this game.
This isn't much of a surprise, considering that the game offers a full single-player and multiplayer experience like any other Triple-A release. Furthermore, VR games have always required higher specs than your regular affair.
It's also possible to run the game without these specs, as Doran noted the recommendations were "conservative" because "there are so many scenarios in this game."
While you're upgrading anyway, why not check out the minimum specs for HINGE: Episode 1 - the most beautiful VR horror game out there which just launched.
