Ubisoft Shares Far Cry New Dawn System Requirements

Source: UbisoftSource: Ubisoft


Fans of the Far Cry series now know how to spec out their rigs to play the upcoming title, Far Cry New Dawn. Ubisoft Montreal tech director Raphael Parent said it the post-apocalyptic game features a “bold art direction” that is “all about a colorful, hopeful, and inviting world.” (Which happen to be the exact same adjectives that spring to our mind when we think of the post-apocalypse. Twinsies.) And, of course, it’s said to take advantage of new hardware.

Without further ado, here are the system requirements:

Far Cry New Dawn is expected to debut on February 15 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It's technically a full game, much like Far Cry Blood Dragon, but the standard edition costs $40 instead of the usual $60. (A “deluxe edition” with exclusive in-game items costs $50.) You can learn more about Far Cry New Dawn’s supported controllers and other hardware via Ubisoft’s website.

    Not officially, no. A lot of developers are no longer including it in their game code. Doesn't mean you can't keep using it for games that support it, just that most new games won't see any benefit from it.
