Far Cry 4’s PC system specs leaked, but also confirmed

Some kind of crossed promotional wires have resulted in the Far Cry 4 PC specs appearing (and then disappearing) early from Nvidia’s site, followed by confirmation by Ubisoft. The initial post in the Ubisoft forum thread dedicated to the PC specs linked to a (since pulled) Nvidia piece.

Ubisoft removed all doubt a little later in the thread, thanks to a post by a Far Cry 4 community manager. She explains that “yes, these are the official system requirements, and it is an honest mistake that they were released on the Nvidia website before they were announced by a Ubisoft source.” Apparently the system specs were going to be officially released tomorrow, but the press release was still being copy-edited and Nvidia jumped the gun.

Anyway, here are the minimum and recommended PC specs for the game. They’re not nearly as demanding as, say, Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Most likely because Far Cry 4 is still a cross-console title (it’s getting a 360/PS3 version.)

Minimum System Requirements

Processor: Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2 GHz
