Far Cry 6: Ubisoft reveals PC system requirements and recommended settings
The French game developer and publisher Ubisoft has finally announced the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version of its upcoming Triple-A title Far Cry 6. The shooter will reportedly run on a wide variety of gaming hardware and support DirectX raytracing as well as AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution. That being said, Far Cry 6's minimum PC requirements are fairly moderate.
To play the game at low settings, 1080p resolution and 30fps, gamers will need at least the CPU equivalent of an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Core i5-4460, a GPU equivalent to the AMD Radeon RX 460 or Nvidia GTX 960 and 8GB of dual-channel memory. To play Far Cry 6 at 1080p/60fps and recommended settings, Ubisoft suggests at least an AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or Intel Core i7-7700, an AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 or Nvidia GTX 1080 and 16GB of RAM. Gamers who prefer to play at 1440p and 60fps will need at least an AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or Intel Core i7-9700, an AMD Radeon RX 5700XT or Nvidia RTX 2070 Super and 16GB of memory as well.
As expected, the game's raytracing features require an enthusiast-grade gaming PC. In order to run the shooter at 1440p at 60fps with activated raytracing, you'll need an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X or Intel Core i5-10600 and an AMD Radeon RX 6900XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070. Last but not least, to run the game at 4k resolution, 30fps and activated raytracing, high-end gamers will need at least an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or Intel Core i7-10700K and an AMD Radeon RX 6800 or Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. 16GB of RAM should be enough to enjoy Far Cry 6 even on its highest settings.
If your gaming PC does not meet the requirements for Far Cry 6, you may prefer to play the next-gen or current-gen console version (from US$59 on Amazon) of Ubisoft's new action game. Far Cry 6 will be released on October 7.
