Steelrising on PC - solving technical problems


The new game from the creators of Greedfall turned out to be a good salt-like about robots in the scenery of the French Revolution. Steelrising is noticeably lighter than most of its predecessors in the genre, but still quite entertaining. Unfortunately, the adventures in the burning Paris of the end of the 18th century are sometimes interrupted by various bugs, and the smoothness of the video sequence during the battles is not ideal due to mediocre optimization.

We will analyze the graphics settings in detail in the next article. And in this, we will talk about solving common technical problems with the Steelrising game.


What kind of computer is needed for Steelrising (system requirements)

We studied independent tests of the game and came to the conclusion that the official system requirements are close to the truth. However, they are only rated for 1080p (1920x1080) resolution. Therefore, we have added recommendations for playing in 2K (2560x1440) and 4K (3840x2160), based on the tests we studied.

The game can efficiently use up to 12 processor threads. Therefore, processors not weaker than Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 of the last couple of generations are recommended. As for the graphics card, for a stable 60 FPS at maximum settings, even at 1080p, an adapter of the GeForce RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5600 XT level is required. More details are below.

  • RAM: 8 gigabytes.

Official recommended system requirements (1080p @ 60 FPS, high preset):

  • Operating system: Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super / RTX 3060 Ti.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

Computer for playing at 1440p @ 30 FPS (high preset, according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-10400 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

Computer for playing at 1440p @ 60 FPS (high preset, according to tests):

  • Operating system: Windows 10 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-10600K / AMD Ryzen 7 3700X.
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 / Radeon RX 6900 XT.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

Computer for playing 4K @ 30 FPS (high preset, according to tests):

Game freezes / DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error / black screen

Perhaps the problem is overheating of the video card. Check if the fans of her cooling system are blocked by adjacent wires. If everything is in order with this, then try resetting the overclocking: go to the MSI Afterburner application and click the Reset button (if such a program is not installed, then the video card most likely did not overclock).
