LordsOfTheFallen sys 

The game takes place in a fictional world where the gods have let humanity down. The player will play the role of a man named Harkin, who sets out on a journey to resist an unstoppable supernatural force. At the same time, players will make decisions that will change both the game world and the character himself, thereby having a significant impact on the story.

Along their journey, they will face a series of decisions that will change both the world and their character, thus significantly affecting the main storyline.

THE GRAFICAL PART

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects.

Supported OS and graphics API

Lords Of The Fallen is supported by major Windows operating systems, which include Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Other operating systems are not currently supported by the developers and will not receive support. 

LordsOfTheFallen steam 

The priority and main graphics API for Lords Of The Fallen is DirectX 11

Game engine 

The game engine FLEDGE Engine for Lords Of The Fallen is a product of City Interactive Deck13's own development. There is practically no information on the network about the structure and development of this engine. Rather, the engine is a further development of the product line for games based on City Interactive Deck13’s own intellectual property. The engine is aimed at use on the latest generation consoles and PCs.

We were unable to find detailed information other than our own visual observations.

Advanced Game Settings

Lords Of The Fallen has both basic and advanced graphics settings. In total there are not so many of them. There is no anti-aliasing option in the graphics menu. Applying game settings in most cases requires a complete restart of the game.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum, medium and maximum graphics quality settings.

The difference between the graphics settings is visible quite clearly and there are visual improvements in them.

In 4K, Lords Of The Fallen looks simply amazing, again, if you have the appropriate device.

General visual design and game physics

Lords Of The Fallen has simply magnificent graphics, which fully justify its release only on the latest generation of game consoles. The picture in the game is simply incredible, which beckons you to enjoy all the delights of the graphical component of the game.

Excellent texture detail, a stunning effect of fiery sparks, epic staged battles with bosses - all this makes the game Lords Of The Fallen memorable for a long time.

It is also worth noting the game physics, based on Nvidia Physics technology - destruction and physical properties of objects at a height that allows you to enjoy the gameplay even more.

Next, we will move directly to gaming tests and determine what impact this game has on modern computer hardware.

GPU test

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. The average and minimum FPS were taken as performance indicators. Below is a video of the test segment:    

Our video cards were tested at different screen sizes of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 with the maximum graphics quality settings allowed by Lords Of The Fallen. SLI works without problems in the game, but AMD CrossFireX is not supported by the game.

Also, video cards with less than 2 gigabytes of video memory did not take part in testing. Lords Of The Fallen has a strange feature - with any screen size, even 1,5 gigabytes will not be enough for the screen, but with 2 gigabytes you can play in 4K...

Although this is not advertised, the game supports Nvidia Physics, all of whose functions are available both on the video card and are also calculated by the processor - in fact, we did not see any difference in the physical effects of these modes, so this time physics is available on AMD video cards . In our testing on NVIDIA cards, physics acceleration was set to the CPU, since in SLI mode the cards did not work correctly, their load reached less than 60% and they lost up to 40% of overall performance.

Testing at 1920x1080 resolution

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 

 LordsOfTheFallen 1920 

With these settings An acceptable FPS indicator was shown by video cards of the Radeon HD 6970 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti level. The optimal solution would be video cards level Radeon HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 750 Ti.

Testing at 2560x1600 resolution

LordsOfTheFallen 2560 

With these settings An acceptable FPS indicator was shown by video cards of the Radeon HD 7950 or GeForce GTX 760 level. The optimal solution would be video cards level Radeon K9 280X or GeForce GTX 680.

Testing at 3840x2160 resolution

LordsOfTheFallen 2014 10 25 11 25 47 420    

Testing at maximum quality settings 3840x2560

LordsOfTheFallen 3840 

With these settings An acceptable FPS indicator was shown by video cards of the GeForce GTX 78 Ti level. The optimal solution would be level video cards Radeon GeForce GTX 980 and higher.

At the moment, we can say with confidence that the game is perfectly adapted for NVIDIA video cards, this applies to both single-chip solutions and SLI tandems, which are most relevant for use in 4k resolution.

 

memory GPU

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the program MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on results on top video cards from AMD and NVIDIA with separate screen sizes 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with different anti-aliasing settings.

vram 2 

The recommended amount of video memory usage for all resolutions will be 4 gigabytes, although as we saw from the tests of video cards, Lords Of The Fallen is playable on 2 gigabyte solutions.

CPU test

 LordsOfTheFallen 2014 10 25 11 25 32 989

We tested processor dependence on 16 models of basic configurations that are relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of video cards for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1920x1080 with maximum graphics quality settings.

The CPU performance in the game is not exactly great, but it is sufficient for the mainstream market segment.

The game can support up to 16 computing threads, distributing the load evenly between them. It fully loads up to 8 computing threads.

RAM test

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 7 5960X@4.6 GHz with 16GB DDR4 2400 MGz pre-installed memory. The entire used operational memory was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various test benches without launching third-party applications (browsers, etc.).

Testing the game's RAM consumption at various quality settings 

LordsOfTheFallen ram 

As we can see, with various quality settings, the amount of RAM consumed in Lords Of The Fallen is at the level of 3 gigabytes.

Testing system RAM consumption  

LordsOfTheFallen kf2 

If you have a system with 4 gigabytes, Lords Of The Fallen consumes about all 4 gigabytes of RAM - playing with such an amount of memory is very difficult, and the gameplay is accompanied by frequent downloads and long loading times. In the presence of a system with 8 gigabytes, the RAM consumption of all RAM was 4.5 gigabytes. With a 16 GB system, the total memory consumption was almost 5.5 gigabytes. And with 32 gigabytes of RAM, the system consumes 7.3 gigabytes of RAM.  

On my own behalf, I would like to add that in the next tests, readers will be expected to reduce the amount of graphics hardware they use. The 6ХХХ series of AMD and 5ХХХ series of NVIDIA are removed from the tests, since both series are already 4 years old, besides, the 6ХХХ series is already quite inefficient, and the 5ХХХ series has too little video memory. Video cards with 1 GB of video memory are also removed from the tests - today’s comfortable minimum for games has stopped at the 2 gigabyte mark, and nothing can be done about it. Also, the minimum test amount of RAM will now be 6 gigabytes - this is also today’s real indicator for games.

Oh, it would be better if they got the dog tested...

If it’s not difficult, run the WOT 9.3 test, otherwise the old test has already lost its relevance.

The review is ready, maps arrive tomorrow, the latest measurements are taken and it is published. Evolve Big Alpha comes out tomorrow evening and we'll start testing right away...
