Far Cry Primal now has a release date and PC system requirements

Far Cry Primal got announced out of nowhere just about a month ago and already we have a confirmed release date and PC system requirements indicating its more or less finished. That level of hush-hush for a company as big as Ubisoft is quite impressive.

Far Cry Primal will be releasing for the Xbox One and PS4 on February 23rd with the PC version following shortly on March 1st. You will find the system requirements right below.

The minimum system requirements are set really low, especially when you consider that Far Cry Primal is not an ugly game by any stretch. Hopefully with the minimum being this accessible it means that Far Cry Primal going to be a well optimized PC port.

Supported OS

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

Processor:

Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent

RAM:

4GB

Video Card:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (1GB VRAM) | AMD Radeon HD 5770 (1GB VRAM) or equivalent

As for the recommended settings, they're as you would expect, middle of the range gaming PC stuff so if you can run most games out there today you'll be fine with Far Cry Primal as well.

The system requirements aside I do have two other bits of information for you. First of all the bad news, there is not going to be a co-op mode in Far Cry Primal as the team decided early on that they would focus all of their efforts towards reinventing the Far Cry formula in order to make the Stone Age setting work out. What I hope this means is that they will stray, at least even slightly, from the all too common features of every single Ubisoft open-world game and do something a bit more unique.

On the positive side of things, during the recent livestream the developers said that they would support a no-HUD option so that you can better immerse yourself in to the world while upping the challenge, especially while sneaking. Details on this mode are rather scarce right now but I'll remain cautiously optimistic that it won't just be the game with only the HUD removed making it essentially unusable.

During the final portion of the livestream the developers also teased some exciting revelations and announcements coming next week but what they will be about they haven't said.
