Watch out for these Requirements Dogs!

By Toast08-10-2013

Ubisoft have officially revealed the system requirements for their upcoming open-world hacking simulator on the Uplay store (Click Read More button to view them). Let's just say the requirements are very beefy, so-to-speak.  You'll be required to have a good amount of RAM, at least 6GBs worth to run but 8GB is recommended. We also learn that it'll be required to have a 64bit Operating System, which is possibly one of the first known titles to push the boundaries like this, a very good thing to see.  Now for a full rundown of the requirements, for people who are too lazy to browse or are unsure of where to find them, you'll find them down below:


Supported OS: Windows Vista SP2 64bit, Windows 7 SP1 64bit, Windows 8 64bit

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 @ 2.66Ghz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0Ghz


Video Card: 1024 VRAM DirectX 11 with Shader Model 5.0 (see supported list)

Sound Card: DirectX 9 compatible Sound Card

This product supports 64-bit operating systems ONLY


Processor: Core i7 3770 @ 3.5Ghz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0Ghz


Video Card: 2048 VRAM DirectX 11 with Shader Model 5.0 or higher (see supported list)

Sound Card: Surround Sound 5.1 capable sound card

Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:

nVidia GeForce GTX460 or better, GT500, GT600, GT700 series;

AMD Radeon HD5850 or better, HD6000, HD7000, R7 and R9 series

Intel® Iris™ Pro HD 5200

If you fall below some of the minimum requirements, I wouldn't panic if I were you, as these are only guidelines, even though it is official. Otherwise, some may want to consider an upgrade, if you want to match the hardware requirements for the new generation of graphic defying games which coincide with our console brethren. Do any of you meet or fall below the requirements? Are you planning or considering an upgrade after reading this? Let us know below.

It depends. They're so-so on Nvidia. It's us AMD users that get the short straw

Well latest games were pretty good. AC:B, AC:R, AC3, FC3. These are the ones I played and enjoyed.

Have you ever played a Ubisoft game just after release, Stunt? They're NEVER optimized well. :P

More important question. Have they finally learned the meaning of the word "optimised"?
