Back4Blood System Requirements
Back4Blood doesnt require a really powerful system to run well. This game feels incredibly well optimised on mid range hardware and runs nicely on entry level video cards and processors. We tried the title on a variety of new and old systems ranging from entry level to high end and each system provided really promising performance results.
Most Stormforce Gaming systems with a GTX 1650 or higher will play the game at 1080p but even modest hardware will see pleasing performance from this title.
even using hardware from a few generations ago such as the older GTX 1060 6GB graphics card, Back4Blood provided smooth framerates with very few drops in framerate or frame pacing issues.
16GB of system memory does feel necessary for a smooth gaming experience and a fast CPU certainly seems to have a very positive impact on framerates but neither are 100% necessary to play the game.
We suggest trying to run the game on the High preset as this strikes a nice balance between visual fidelity and performance.
Back4Blood supports AMD FidelityFX and NVIDIA DLSS upscaling technologies and we suggest turning them on to enhance performance of the title if your video card supports it.
