It's Unreal Engine 4 man, now I might be wrong but I think even my old laptop with Intel HD Graphics could run it on minimum settings, provided it's well-optimized.

Although, for most games a GTX950 should suffice, some will run at max settings with 60fps with that thing, I'd also recommend getting a good processor, at least dual-core, I have an i3 3.7GHz dual-core CPU.

8Gb RAM is enough.

I run a system a little under what's above but can run most games quite fine, they're not AAA games nor do I plan on playing those. When building a system you have to keep in my mind what type of gamer you are and the games you'll be playing. No point in breaking the 500 mark if all you do is emulators and f2p. In this case, NOVA will be F2P so don't expect the requirements to be extreme.

500$ P.C will be more than enough to Run Nova . just wait til it comes out , hopefully sometime later this year.
Once it comes out , that will be the only game I'll be on .

That's not necessarly true if you talk about the engine itself tbh.

While it's true that UE4 has a lot of "easy to use", built in ways to optimize games, the heavy parts of a game nowadays are draw calls, assets polycount , shader and lighting complexity (and, to some extent also texture size). Basically, it depends.

That said, the fanfest demo does not seem to be particularly "heavy" for todays "top graphics" (Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefield 1 etc) :

- LODs seem to be pretty "aggressive" (as you can see the popping of a higher definition mesh in this video between 0:21 and 0:22 while still being relatively "close" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLGdp9lp2Kw).

- There seem to be a wide (and wise imo) usage of Normal Maps for secondary details which would undoubtedly drastically reduce polycount (0:44 on the same video).

- Last but not least, UE4 standard Occlusion Culling works wonderfully.

I only have one little doubt: in certain situations, particles might be too heavy, but I'm sure it was just an eye-candy for the fanfest demo.

But that's what I can say based on a youtube video, I wasn't there so I cannot be more specific on things like texel density for example and above all, it was a pre-production demo so everything might have changed. All in all, at that state, I'd say it shouldn't have been too heavy.

I guess while we're on it, can anyone tell me the temperature on June 3, 2019? I'd just like to dress appropriately when I go outside today. Thanks. Is it raining?

*edit*
I mean that with the utmost of love though.

Yep, it'll be between -40C and 50C on that day.

It depends on where you live . If you lived here where I live, you'd probably be on the beach enjoying the sun, complaining about the temperature being too warm.

And mocking tourists who wear socks and sandals.

I mean, We hate people who wear socks with sandals.


It's just too warm. Seriously.




Why would you wear socks if you're going to the beach, anyway?





Aww, I hate people who wear socks and sandals Twisted.

I'm planning to spend around 1G on a PC tower when some concrete Nova news is provided. Should be sufficient.

Less than the system requirements for Star Citizen. Beyond that I have no idea.

Look into a game called Fractured Space. Uses the UE4 engine, is absolutely stunning as far as graphics, and most of all is free. If you can run that fairly well, you should be a'ight, theoretically speaking.

Basically just build your rig around other current UE4 games.

EDIT: I'll see if I can get the specs for the PCs used for the Nova playtest at Fanfest 2015.

Thank Dennie, he went hunting it down. Spectre is the one used at Fanfest.

EDIT: Bearing in mind that this machine was kinda overkill, even for Nova. Ran it smooth as butter.
