Atomic Heart launches on 21 February for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The game is also available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

Atomic Heart Console Performance
According to Mundfish, Atomic Heart will run pretty well on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The developer says the shooter comes with one graphical mode in the game which adaptively changes depending on what you’re doing.
On both PS5 and Xbox Series X, the mode targets a dynamic 4K 60FPS. Most of the time, this 4K 60FPS is achieved but at times when things get intense, the resolution might drop in order to achieve the solid 60FPS mark.
On Xbox Series S, the game will run at 1080p 60FPS with the same graphical mode that features a dynamic resolution scaling technique.
This means that across all consoles, you’ll get one graphics mode without the option to tweak it. However, Mundfish states that this one mode is the best way to experience Atomic Heart and has been optimized to get the most out of your console.
Atomic Heart PC System Requirements
When it comes to the Atomic Heart PC system requirements, you’ll be able to play the game with any modern GPU. The highest 4K Ultra settings require an RTX 3080 or Radeon RX 6800. If you’re looking at the middle ground, Mundfish recommends a GTX 1080 for High and an RTX 2070 for Ultra.
Here are the official PC system requirements for Atomic Heart.

Of course, if you have better hardware than the above, say a 40-series GPU, you’ll be able to take advantage of higher frame rates. The game does include DLSS support which will further increase the overall performance thanks to its upscaling techniques.
