With the release date of Assassin's Creed: Origins just around the corner, Ubisoft has now finally revealed the minimum and recommended PC system configurations. More importantly, Ubisoft took things a step further by also releasing a detailed list of PC-specific features and settings, their impact, and whether or not you can disable them.

There are far too many minute details for me to cover without boring most of you, so if you're interested in all of the PC specific settings I would recommend you head over to the Ubisoft website. If you're only interested in the PC system requirements, however, I'll post the full list down below. Have a look:

MINIMUM CONFIGURATION

OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)

PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-2400s @ 2.5 GHz or AMD FX-6350 @ 3.9 GHz or equivalent

VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX660 or AMD R9 270 (2048 MB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)

SYSTEM RAM: 6GB

Resolution: 720p

Video Preset: Lowest

 

RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION

OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)

PROCESSOR: Intel Core i7- 3770 @ 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz

VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX760 or AMD R9 280X (3GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)

SYSTEM RAM: 8GB

Resolution: 1080p

Video Preset: High

As you can plainly see, these requirements are quite a bit spicier than your usual AAA release. With most games an average i5 CPU is more than enough to run the game at 1080p with medium settings, but with Assassin's Creed: Origins its barely enough to run it at the lowest settings and 720p. Whether this is due to poor optimization or Assassin's Creed: Origins really being that demanding, I'm afraid I don't know, but if you are planing to buy it make sure you're able to at least match the recommended settings as anything below that seems to be a rather risky venture.

Assassin's Creed: Origins will be coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One this October 27th. To learn more about it, or just check out a whole bunch of gameplay videos, you should head over to the official website. And finally, allow me to leave you with one of the recent gameplay trailers, just so you know what sort of visuals your GPU and CPU will be toiling for. Enjoy!
