Recommended hardware setups[edit | edit source]
These are from an older publication. The developers did a big performance and compatibility test with their external QA partner, Testronic, and they started going through the results of this test, giving them a lot of really helpful data that they can use to improve the game.
For this test the developers set up different testing scenarios for both single-player games and dedicated servers. They defined hotspots around the map that affect CPU and GPU performance (based on internal testing and community feedback), places like the Black Hand Pirate ship and other highly populated areas with a lot of activity. Over 70 different configurations were tested, mixing up CPUs and GPUs from Intel, Nvidia and AMD, on all settings, from Laptop Mode to Ultra.
In the table below, the developers have summarized their findings from the compatibility tests. The results are relatively conservative and should allow you to have a good experience if you have similar configurations. Obviously, if you are playing in a stressful scenario with lots of players and buildings, performance will be different. If your game performance is severely different from the estimates in the table below, please get in touch with one of the community managers, as there may be some compatibility issues that they are not aware of.
