Assassin's Creed Unity PC Specs announced


Assassin's Creed dev thinks industry is dropping 60 fps standard

Assassin's Creed Unity PC Specs announced


After it was announced that Assassin's Creed Unity would run on  both Consoles at a resolution of 900p at 30FPS we wondered if this meant that the PC version would require an obscenely high amount of CPU and GPU horsepower.  Now Ubisoft has announced their minimum and recommended PC requirements and they are beefy, a minimum of a GTX 680 or a HD 7970 and a i5-2500K or FX-8350 CPU! This better not be for a console like 30FPS experience.

The recommended specs are even higher, requiring a GTX 780 or AMD's current Flagship single cored GPU the R9 290X and on the  CPU side a i7- 3770K or a FX-8350. The game will also take up 50GB on your hard drive. 


Below are the full system requirements:

Ubisoft seem to have become so addicted to lying that they can no longer differentiate the real world from their made up little world. Perhaps they think if they lie hard enough, everyone will believe them?Quote
