As we said, Blizzard revealed the minimum and recommended requirements for Overwatch 2 saying that the minimum are to play at 30 FPS and the recommended ones for 60 FPS, and in medium quality (we understand that both cases are for Full HD resolution).

To this, we have added an additional section with our recommendations if you intend to play with maximum graphics, higher FPS and higher resolutions, so that you can get a better idea of ​​whether or not your PC is ready to move decently. this game, and whether you’ll need to update any hardware components before release in order to be ready.

For these reasons, in the case of the “proper” recommended requirements for those who want to play with maximum graphic settings, at higher resolutions and/or higher FPS rates, we have raised the necessary hardware a bit: to begin with, we recommend a more modern processor, and in the case of Intel an Alder Lake-S that takes advantage of the performance improvements that Windows 11 gives you, such as Thread Director. We have also increased the amount of RAM memory to 16 GB, which is practically the standard for any game, while in terms of the graphics card, the most important element to be able to raise the rate of frames per second, we have gone to models of higher range that guarantee us good performance at higher resolution and/or a higher FPS rate if you decide to stay in Full HD resolution.
