Metro: Last Light will perform impressively on PC rigs that aren’t necessarily rocking the latest and most expensive tech, according to THQ’s Huw Beynon.
Beynon told Ausgamers that the game’s’ E3 demo, which the site described as ‘incredible’, was running on what he described as a “pretty modest” PC, and that 4A games have done a great job at getting as much performance as possible out of the tech they’ve been working with.
“I don’t mind telling you that it was a six gig of ram i7 and we had a single GTX-480, which was nVidia’s DX11 launch card last year” Huw Beynon said
“I think it’s fair to say that the guys at 4A are some kind of strange, technical wizards that can get that kind of performance out of it so we’re really excited.”
We’re not sure just how ‘modest’ you’ll be able to get before your PC gives in, but it’ll certainly be nice to have a game of this caliber that can run on some lower-end PCs.
Metro: Last Light is the sequel to THQ’s 2010 shooter, Metro 2033, and is set to release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime next year.
