As we can see, despite the fact that A Plague Tale: Innocence is a 2019 title, it is not really excessively demanding, at least graphically speaking, since even in the recommended requirements it is asking us for a graph that is already long overdue and that in fact neither It was not even high-end in its time, but upper-mid-range. In any case, we estimate that the modern equivalent would be a GTX 1660 Ti at most to be able to move the game to the maximum without problems.
Where the game is somewhat more demanding is in terms of the processor, since in the recommended requirements it is already asking us for a relatively powerful CPU, so extrapolating this to more current hardware we would tell you that at least it would be advisable to have a CPU with 8 processing threads if possible. Refering to RAM notice that in the minimum requirements it asks us for 8 GB and the 16 GB that are already recommended, and this has been the usual trend lately: the 16 GB of RAM in a gaming PC is essential today.
For the rest, it is a title that graphically is not a marvel but that is not bad at all, and without a doubt that if your hardware manages to move it to a good resolution and 60 FPS you will enjoy it a lot, especially if you like this genre of games.
