Past Cure - PC Demo and System Requirements

Phantom 8 Studios has released a PC demo for their upcoming game, Past Cure, on Steam alongside the title's PC system requirements, which are pretty low by today's standards. 

Past Cure is a dark psychological thriller, where players blur the line between dream and reality as you play a former soldier who was forced to take part in torturous experiments. The game is a cinematic, story-driven experience, where players follow the struggles of a broken soldier who is searching for his lost memories, with the title featuring both action and stealth elements. 

The final game will release on Steam on February 23rd, though at this time the game's final pricing is unknown. 

  


Below are Past Cure's PC system requirements, which are very tame by today's standards, requiring only 4GB of RAM and recommending a GTX 1050 or an AMD R9 270X.  

 

MINIMUM:

OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
Processor: Intel Core i5-2400/AMD FX-8320 or better
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or better
DirectX: Version 10
Storage: 12 GB available space

RECOMMENDED:

OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
Processor: Intel Core i7-5820K/AMD FX-8350
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 / AMD Radeon R9 270X
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 12 GB available space


Those who are interested in this title can download the game's demo on Steam, giving PC gamers an opportunity to sample some of the game's content for free.

Why the high CPU requirements, tho? I know it's 3 years old already, but a 5820K was nothing "basic" or "budget" at the time.Quote

No that's true but the PS4 did have 8 cores at the time. So if they have used some of those portions of the code then it will want more cores.

I can't remember where I saw it now, but a good few of the very latest games (the last 5 or so) are now using more than four cores. And stuff like Crysis 3 even, on certain levels, performs much better on Ryzen 1600 than on any I5.

Before Ryzen the game devs basically had to code for the I5, as that is what every one is using. However, now that AMD have something to be taken seriously you can expect newer games to want more cores. They may still use the Intel 6 core as a base, but that is still 6 cores.

It may take a while but we are starting to move in the right direction.Quote

In what world is the 8350 comparable to any socket 2011 chip..., I mean I have one but what.Quote

It isn't. The 8350 is basically dead level with a I7 920 on IPC, but without HT. However, when you have a game wanting cores the 8350 will still do an adequate job.

If a game engine wants a set amount of cores and you don't have them it simply doesn't run. I saw this on a couple of games when I had my Pentium. There was an article on Digital Foundry about this about ooo, three years ago now. They talked to game devs and they all said that they would rather have the 8350 going into the future than something like a quad core.

It shouldn't be too long now before cores do a set task and you will need more of them. Whether you would still want to use an old Piledriver? well that is up to you Quote

This is true on so many levels. Even though I don't really like AMD, they did their job so well with Ryzen. Let's hope, we're really moving in the right direction.Quote
