Far Cry New Dawn PC System Requirements Announced

Ubisoft has released the PC system requirements for Far Cry New Dawn, the game which takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of Far Cry 5's Hope County.  

The game will be based on the same engine as Far Cry 5, which means that PC gamers should expect similar graphical features such as support for FP16 mixed compute and deliver great performance while using the ageing DirectX 11 API. 

For the most part Far Cry: New Dawn has the same PC system requirements as its predecessor, though the game's CPU requirements have been increased for certain resolution/framerate targets. Below PC gamers will be able to see requirements that range from 720p 30FPS gameplay all the way to 4K at 60 FPS, confirming that the game will support SLI and Crossfire. 

 

    Life in Hope County has changed drastically since the events of Far Cry 5, and you'll be able to explore the new post-apocalyptic landscape when Far Cry New Dawn launches on February 15. To help you get geared up for the fight to survive against the vicious Highwaymen, the development team has shared a look at the PC system requirements.

"We are very proud of what our team achieved with the PC version of Far Cry New Dawn and cannot wait for PC players to discover the post-apocalyptic scenario we've created," said Raphael Parent, tech director at Ubisoft Montreal. "The bold art direction we have taken for this game is all about a colorful, hopeful, and inviting world, which we know will benefit a great deal from the power of current PC hardware. We hope that players will love the fresh new look of Far Cry New Dawn."

Interesting to see them recommend SLI and Crossfire setups.
Based off that the only single card to probably hit 4k60 is the 2080ti. Don't think the Vega 7 will if it's similar to a 2080Quote

My Fury X had no issues running FC5 smoothly @1600p. I can't see why this would be any more punishing, given it's basically the same game albeit rather burnt lol.

Will be a nice distraction from the stress.Quote

Because 1600p is not nearly as demanding as 2160p60?Quote

It's more than 1440p, on a card with half of the VRAM of Vega 56. Then again in all honesty Vega 56 really isn't that much faster than a Fury X. Both were around 1070 levels.

I'm just saying that I think they may have exaggerated just a little bit on those specs. I reckon you could get way more than 30 FPS on a Vega... We'll see though, as I will be sure to test mine for y'all when it comes out. Already pre ordered it Quote

1600p as in 2560*1600? It's less than half the pixel count of 4K.Quote
