Far Cry 6 is just a month or so away from its release. When it got first announced, there was a lot of hype for it, not only was the trailer amazing with its new setting. But, no one expected seeing an antagonist that is modeled after Breaking Bad’s Guss Fring. Anyway, the trailer was great, and later we got to know lot more about the game regarding the kind of weapons, the setting for the game, etc. And, now with just a month or so away from its release, the system requirements for the upcoming, and latest Far Cry game, Far Cry 6 have been released. So, let’s go over the system requirements for the game.

From the requirements, it is pretty clear, that Ubisoft wants this game to be a sight for sore eyes for those with powerful PC. And, also playable for those who do not have that powerful of a gaming PC. The minimum requirements for Far Cry 6, which would provide a 1080p 30 FPS at the Low preset settings is quite low by today’s standards. It recommends almost four years old hardware, that also, entry-level hardware even by the standards of 2017. When it comes to recommended requirements for 1080p 60 FPS at the Ultra preset, the requirements get a massive jump. However, when you consider that it is a modern AAA  title which is going to have state of the art visuals, it makes quite a lot of sense. And, as for the Ultra requirements which would allow you to play at 4K 30 FPS with Ray tracing enabled, that is a lot higher yet again.This time it recommends not only a very powerful processor but also a similarly powerful graphic card. RAM requirement stays consonant at 16GB for all of these.

So, most people should definitely be able to run Far Cry 6 on their PC. Granted, depending on the hardware, you might have to play at lower visual settings, but even if you have a entry-level gaming PC, you can play it at 1080p, 30 FPS at the Low preset. So, that is a pretty good thing. And, if you have a powerful PC, you can crank the settings, and enjoy the beauty of Far Cry 6 at its fullest
