The Far Cry series has always demanded a bit of muscle to run well on PC, though of course the advantage is that it's looked best on PC. Ubisoft today confirmed Far Cry 3's system requirements, so see if your computerator has the grunt to run the latest open-world-y FPS.

Minimum Specs

  • CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6700/AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+ or equivalent dual-core

  • Video: Nvidia GTX8800/AMD Radeon HD2900 or equivalent 512MB DirectX 9c card

  • Memory: 4GB

Recommended Specs

  • CPU: Intel Core i3-530/AMD Phenom II X2 565 or equivalent quad-core

  • Video: Nvidia GTX480/AMD Radeon HD5770 or equivalent 1024MB DirectX 11 card

  • Memory: 4GB

Hi-Performance Specs

  • Video: Nvidia GTX680/AMD Radeon HD7970 or equivalent shiny new DirectX 11 card

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K/AMD Bulldozer FX4150 or equivalent quad-core

  • Memory: 8GB

The DRM involves, as per Ubisoft's new policy, a one-time activation through Uplay. You'll only need to be online if you want to play multiplayer, such as the intriguing four-player co-op.

      AMD Bulldozer? Sound like they actually optimise this game for the bulldozers! A bit early to say I know, but I'm impressed!

      Still requires UPlay, which is more deterrent than value-add in the PC FPS market. If it's only used for DRM and player-matching, why not use Steam?

      You know, other than "Ubisoft wants to push their own online services platform." UPlay is not competitive with Steam, on features and ease of use, as well as customer care.

      That's an increasingly silly question 7 years into a console generation. My 5 year old gaming laptop beats those minimum specs.

        Really the question should be "will you get 120 FPS on your PC" or "will you get 60 FPS while running stereo 3D" or "is this optimized for triple monitor gaming?"
