With Far Cry 5’s official release slowly creeping onto our calendars, French publisher Ubisoft has unveiled the system requirements needed to run the PC version of the game.

According to the publisher’s blog post, gamers looking to run the game at 1080p and 60FPS will need at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD R9 290X GPU and at least Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz processor. While those looking to run the game in 4K, if your PC is sporting an Intel Core i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.6 GHz processor, as well as an  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD RX Vega 56 graphics card, you will be able to run the game at 4K 30FPS.

However, if you want to run the game at the highest settings, your PC will require at least an Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 1700X @ 3.4 GHz or equivalent for the processor and at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI or AMD RX Vega 56 CFX.
