Immortals of Aveum: A Demanding Sorcery Adventure

Immortals of Aveum is an immersive first-person sorcery adventure that is stunning to behold and captivating to play. However, its high demands on PC hardware may leave some gamers struggling to meet the requirements. Developed using Unreal Engine 5.1, the game showcases cutting-edge lighting and visual effects technology, resulting in a visually stunning experience. But to achieve playable performance on lower-end and older mid-range systems, sacrifices must be made in terms of graphics quality.

DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and FSR 2 (FidelityFX Super Resolution 2) are available to help boost performance, but they are virtually essential rather than optional enhancements for this demanding game. The high hardware requirements indicated in the PC specs are no joke, often requiring top-tier graphics cards and CPUs to run smoothly. Even older rigs may struggle to meet the minimum requirements.

Despite some benchmark testing that yielded playable framerates on lower-end hardware, such as an Intel Arc A750, the game's recommended specs call for powerful GPUs like the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT or the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080. These high-end GPUs, paired with top-of-the-line CPUs, will ensure a smooth gaming experience at 4K resolutions and high framerates.

However, even high-end graphics cards struggle to perform optimally in Immortals of Aveum. For example, the RTX 3070 only managed 56fps in Ultra-quality 1080p and required DLSS on Balanced mode to reach 67fps at 1440p. The game's demanding nature may leave older PCs incapable of running it smoothly, even on the lowest settings.

In addition to hardware requirements, Immortals of Aveum has encountered performance issues, such as stuttering, crashes, and flickering shadows and textures. The implementation of DLSS 3, exclusive to RTX 40-series cards, has also been problematic, resulting in flashing afterimages and incorrect imagery in the UI.

Despite the technical challenges, Immortals of Aveum is a visually stunning and immersive game for those with the hardware to support it. For gamers with older rigs, sacrifices in graphics quality and the use of performance-enhancing features may be necessary to enjoy the sorcery-filled adventure.
