Far Cry 5 PC Requirements, Features Unveiled By Ubisoft

The insanely busy holiday season has passed us by and a new year of games is breathing down our necks. One of the biggest titles on the upcoming docket docket is Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5. The open-world shooter series has been a mainstay of gaming for years, but Far Cry 5 was not always going to be an open world experience like its predecessors. The Far Cry will make its in-game debut on American soil and we are only two months away from release. As that time draws near, Ubisoft has officially announced the PC requirements for Far Cry 5, along with some mention of the PC-centric features to expect when the game arrives March 27.

With the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X ensuring that even console games offer differing levels or visual fidelity and performance, Ubisoft has provided several system requirement lists so that players can make sure they meet their performance goals.

It is interesting that Ubisoft has included a requirements list for 4K 30fps on “High” settings. PC players can expect to meet these requirements if they are looking to match the experience provided by the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of the game.

As far as PC-specific features, Far Cry 5 will support adjustable FOV, Ultrawide monitors, FPS locking, an internal resolution scaler, and multi-GPU configurations. For the video card performance nerds, Ubisoft is including a built-in benchmarking tool. This tool will let users who love to tinker get useful data on how their PC is working with the game engine and how the different setting will affect performance.

Far Cry 5 is just around the corner, arriving March 27. You can pre-order the game for the PS4, Xbox One, or PC right now and be ready for the fight.
