    That’s not bad actually. Nice to see the developers actually utilize Hyper Threading technology with Intel CPU’s. The AMD equivalent of a i3-2100 would, probably be close to a FX4100 so still a game that can run on a cheaper CPU which is ideal for the budget builder. Its also good to see that the developers are modernizing a graphic requirement with 2GB VRAM which shows that this game with have some nice textures to it, even on minimal settings.

    Well done Square Enix, hats off to you.
