Wolfenstein: Youngblood PC Performance Review

PC System Requirements  

Wolfenstein: Youngblood promises to be a demanding release from Machine Games, requiring a minimum of 4GB of VRAM according to the developer's system requirements. We will put this to the test later with our R9 380 and GTX 960 graphics cards, but it seems clear that sub-4GB frame buffers will soon be inadequate for high-end gaming experiences. 

With AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X being recommended, it seems clear that Wolfenstein: Youngblood is designed to run with more than six processing cores, which is good news for those with multi-core systems. We will look into Wolfenstein's CPU performance later on page 5. 

Minimum:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
Processor: AMD FX-8350/Ryzen 5 1400 or Intel Core i5-3570/i7-3770
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB (Current available GPU GTX1650) or AMD equivalent
Storage: 40 GB available space

Recommended:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 64-Bit
Processor: AMD FX-9370/Ryzen 5 1600X or Intel Core i7-4770
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB (Current available GPU RTX2060) or AMD equivalent
Storage: 40 GB available space


Wolfenstein: Youngblood PC Performance Review  

Wolfenstein: Youngblood offers players with a multitude of graphical options, ranging from the usual Low, Medium, High and Ultra presets to higher-end profiles called Uber and Mein Leben!, which translates to "above" and  "My life" respectively. 

During our testing, we will have a look at how these presets impact Wolfenstein: Youngblood's performance and VRAM utilisation. Users of 6GB graphics cards will be able to handle the game's Mein Leben! preset with relative ease at 1080p and 1440p, though more VRAM can be used at 4K. This game can be a VRAM hog at times, but the game still looks great at lower settings.

Thanks.



TL DR - Performance is good ;-)


Rumor has it, that the single player missions cannot be paused ... can you confirm this? It's a absolute deal-breaker for me.Quote

Maybe in Co op they cant. Or maybe its because of Co op. Makes sense though.Quote

It doesn't pause. You can usually keep running for a, to a safer section of the map, and pause, but the game carries on as normal.

This game is designed for co-op, so it makes sense why the game works this way. I agree that is is very annoying for single-player play.Quote

I heard it's poo. When I jump on pc later I'll stick a link in to a YT vid. I'm just glad it was pretty cheap really though I'll admit I've not installed it yet as I'm waiting for my fibre to be connected.

It may be that it's fine tbh. I just think the annoying bits sound really annoying. It's not like they are aiming it at women but rather immature young girls. Which may find a niche, but certainly not with me. I've been married to two lol.Quote
