  • Storage: 40 GB SSD

As expected, the recommended specs do step things up a bit. A more powerful processor and GPU become evident. These specs also continue the trend with 8 GB cards becoming the new recommended norm. Interestingly, they specify having an SSD versus an HDD. The initial release will be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store for $29.99. It will then be available on Steam in 2021. Some have already made favorable comparisons to Dark Souls since its trailer was released. Fans of the genre may want to take note of this one.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
