Ubisoft Shares Far Cry New Dawn System Requirements

Source: 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.

    Same as the previous game's. Unfortunately, FC5 didn't meet my requirements. Not preordering a game again. I'll wait to see if this one flops

    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.

    No difference from previous requirements. Also the game runs well on first generation intel "I" series CPU and even on core quad. It can also be run on core 2 duo but is not very playable.

    CFX and SLI won't go "bye bye" completely. Hopefully what happens is we stop using AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering) and switch to SFR (Split Frame Rendering)… the latter can use all the GPU's to work on a single FRAME and use up to all the VRAM rather than each card having the same pool of VRAM (AFR means 2x8GB=8GB, SFR means 2x8GB=16GB).

    Some games now have code that requires the SAME GPU process as it uses previous frames to increase efficiency.

    Right now though SLI is a very, very bad idea. I was just helping a guy out at Tomshardware and he still has issues with a game when adding a second RTX2080 even though he disabled SLI... too many issues as well for stutter or lower FPS though in some cases SLI works great!

    We need the GAME ENGINE such as Unreal 4 Engine to make SFR simple to implement otherwise game developers can't justify the extra work. I think they in turn had to wait for DX12 or Vulkan to mature enough. Hopefully we're getting close to that point.

    I wonder though if we'll see MIXED CARDS (GPU, VRAM etc) work well. In theory yes, in practice who knows.

    At least NVidia is adding support for the better FREESYNC monitors though. Yay!! I'm hoping for one with HDR and Overdrive that supports both an NVidia PC and PS5 (AMD GPU) console. Wishful thinking? Probably not. Also want a 4K, 120Hz (input) HDTV with HDR and Overdrive.

    I don't think AMD will be supporting GSYNC monitors though as NVidia would need to give them the info to do that AFAIK.
