Forspoken was initially unveiled as a PlayStation exclusive, but it hit PlayStation 5 and PC simultaneously. Forspoken is an open-world RPG, packed to the gills with intense magic and an extreme amount of particle effects when you cast a spell. The open world is vast and features very few load times. When Square Enix released the recommended PC specifications, players were nervous, as they carried some steep requirements. This guide will explain the best graphic settings in Forspoken.
The best PC graphics settings in Forspoken
Forspoken on PlayStation 5 has three graphics modes: Performance, Quality, and Ray Tracing. These boil down to preference, but we suggest turning off motion blur to considerably clean up the image quality. On PC, Square Enix offers a surprisingly robust set of options to tweak and configure. If PC is where you want to experience Frey’s journey, we recommend having a PC that meets Square Enix’s requirements for this game.
