Like many of the Far Cry titles before it, Ubisoft­’s Far Cry 6 is shap­ing up to be anoth­er beau­ti­ful, scenic sand­box game in which play­ers will be caus­ing all sorts of chaos. If you plan on pick­ing this up for your PC before it’s offi­cial launch in Octo­ber, you might want to see if your rig can han­dle the game. Thank­ful­ly, Ubisoft has pro­vid­ed the PC require­ments for Far Cry 6, so you’re pre­pared before release.

Accord­ing to the spec require­ments, even mod­est machines should be able to run Far Cry 6–as long as you don’t mind a cut back on visu­als. PC users with high-end machines can a much bet­ter expe­ri­ence, with 4K res­o­lu­tion, ray trac­ing, an uncapped frame rate, scaled res­o­lu­tion for ultra­w­ide dis­plays, as well as a built in bench­mark­ing tool.

Ubisoft is also rec­om­mend­ing the game be installed on a sol­id-state dri­ve. The set­tings list­ed are for rigs run­ning Win­dows 10–20H1 ver­sion or new­er, 64-bit only–and are DirectX12-compatible.
