Ubisoft has revealed the system requirements for the PC version of The Division

With The Division beta fast approaching on January 28th Ubisoft has lifted the PC embargo allowing for a ton of new information and footage to flow in.

And perhaps the most relevant announcement out of them all was the reveal of the PC system requirements. Here's what you will need to run The Division comfortably in the upcoming beta and March 8 release:

The minimum recommended configuration, as you would expect, is a fairly middle-ranged rig and if you can run any of the modern games that have Xbox One or PS4 equivalents you'll be alright with The Division as well:

Supported OS: Windows® 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only).

Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 | AMD FX-6100, or better.

RAM: 6GB

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 with 2 GB VRAM (current equivalent NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760) | AMD Radeon HD 7770 with 2 GB VRAM, or better

Notebook support: Laptop models of these desktop cards may work as long as they are on-par in terms of performance with at least the minimum configuration. For an up-to-date list of supported hardware, please visit the FAQ for this game on our website: http://support.ubi.com

DirectX: Version 11

Hard Drive Space: 40 GB available space.

Peripherals Supported: Windows-compatible keyboard, mouse, headset, optional controller.

As for the recommended configuration, now there's where things get interesting as they are set quite high. Its not the absolute top of the range hardware but you will still a beastly rig if you plan to go anywhere near max settings with The Division.

If these are the recommended system requirements after the recent graphical downgrade then I think I understand why they opted to tone down the shadows and lighting:

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

Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 | AMD FX-8350, or better.
