Far Cry New Dawn Has Fairly Acceptable System Requirements

Far Cry New Dawn Has Fairly Acceptable System Requirements

Far Cry New Dawn takes place 17 years after Far Cry 5. A nuclear holocaust changed the landscape of Hope County, Montana entirely. Now, it’s up to the player and various survivors to face the encroaching raiders known as Highwayman. The post-apocalyptic landscape in Far Cry New Dawn will be filled with new threats, and, naturally, dazzling and strange scenery.

All of that would be for naught if your rig can’t run it. That’s why Ubisoft has released the system requirements for the game. For the most part, Far Cry New Dawn has the same system requirements as its predecessor. And now, on to the specs:

New Dawn, Old Specs

You’ll notice that, much like other games in their catalog, Ubisoft also added system requirements for various settings (4K and FPS), including the presets that each setup can run. Nicely done, Ubi.
