Forspoken low FPS

Installing the latest video drivers will do wonders! Just update the old drivers and you will get 10-15 FPS boost for a certain game. Forspoken is not a minor release. There will definitely be a new pack of drivers for it.

We don’t link to Intel drivers as it doesn’t make sense. Are you sure you read the system requirements of the game?

Forspoken crashes on startup

Updating video drivers can not only fix the low FPS, but also relieve Forspoken from frequent crashes. However, both depend on the level of optimization of the game, and it is not the greatest.

Forspoken DLL errors

As a rule, different DLL errors at game launches are caused by the lack of some sets of libraries on the player’s PC. The libraries listed below are critical components, without which launching modern games and programs is literally impossible.

VS C++
.NET Framework

You are very likely to fix some (or even all) Forspoken DLL errors by installing to your PC the libraries from the links above.

Forspoken won’t start

First of all, use the links from the previous paragraph. Believe us, these libraries will help you. Next, check if your PC meets at least the minimum system requirements. If not, it is not surprising that Forspoken does not start.
