An Ubisoft community manager has confirmed on the forums the current PC minimum and recommended specs for their upcoming open world action game Watch Dogs. However, he adds a caveat that these are ‘subject to change.’

So, these are the minimum requirements and recommended specs:


Supported OS: Windows Vista SP2 64bit, Windows 7 SP1 64bit, Windows 8 64bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 @ 2.66Ghz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0Ghz
Video Card: 1024 VRAM DirectX 11 with Shader Model 5.0 (see supported list)
Sound Card: DirectX 9 compatible Sound Card
This product supports 64-bit operating systems ONLY


Processor: Core i7 3770 @ 3.5Ghz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0Ghz
Video Card: 2048 VRAM DirectX 11 with Shader Model 5.0 or higher (see supported list)
Sound Card: Surround Sound 5.1 capable sound card
Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:
nVidia GeForce GTX460 or better, GT500, GT600, GT700 series;
AMD Radeon HD5850 or better, HD6000, HD7000, R7 and R9 series
Intel® Iris™ Pro HD 5200

As you can see, even at minimum the requirements are relatively high. When Ubi says these are subject to change, does it mean they are trying to belatedly add scaling for the PC version? Will it be able to run at hardware equal to or below the Playstation 3, even the Xbox 360? Of course, we’ll let you know if changes in specs do come to light. If they never do, you may want to look into upgrading that gaming PC.
