Dead or Alive 6 Packs some Insane CPU Requirments

Dead or Alive 6 is set to land on PC this Friday, and Koei Tecmo Games has finally released the game’s PC system requirements on Steam, where the title will be available exclusively on Windows. The game will also be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
     
While the game boasts a “new graphics engine” and a “new level” of graphics for the series, Dead or Alive 6 cannot be called one of the best looking games out there. 

Judging from the title’s official PC system requirements, PC gamers may have a hard time running this title, especially if they have a lower-end processor, with Koei Tecmo recommending the use of an i7-8700 processor, a high-end Coffee Lake offering that can boost up to 4.6GHz under load. The game also recommends a staggering 16GB of system memory. 

This feels like a punch in the face to PC gamers, as Dead or Alive’s PC system requirements are either incredible inaccurate, which is not uncommon for Koei Tecmo, or that the game actually needs a high-end six-core processor to run well on PC. If the latter is true, calling the game unoptimised could be considered an understatement.

Sadly, no AMD hardware requirements have been provided, both on the CPU and GPU side, with the developer offering no indication of how much VRAM players are expected to have.
