The developers haven’t shared a target resolution or framerate here, which makes it a bit difficult to gauge what they’re targeting. Either way, to play at higher settings, you’ll need something like an RTX 2070 paired with a Ryzen 5 5600X. Since this isn’t exactly an action-heavy title, the mid-budget components make a lot of sense, especially if these requirements are targeting 1080p.

Apart from that, you need around 9 GB of free space to install Still Wakes the Deep, and an SSD is recommended no matter what configuration you’re playing this on. Additionally, DirectX 11 GPUs won’t be able to launch the game, which has been the case for a lot of Unreal Engine 5 titles. While not mentioned, I’m assuming the game also requires an updated Windows to ensure that the DX12 Agility SDK is installed.

You can now add the title to your wishlist on PC via Steam, and the Epic Games Store.

Still Wakes the Deep Release Date

Still Wakes the Deep is coming to PC, Xbox Series S|X, and PS5 on June 18, 2024. Last year was incredible for horror games, and we’re hoping the trend continues with this new adventure from The Chinese Room.

While the system requirements for Still Wakes the Deep aren’t as intensive, we would’ve liked to see the target resolution, framerate, and presets.

Ubisoft did a great job with XDefiant’s system requirements which are actually useful for players who want to download the release. These give players a good idea of what to expect from the systems, and what level of performance they’ll achieve.
