It’s a case of system requirements round two for Watch Dogs, as Ubisoft has once again revealed the Watch Dogs minimum system requirements for the heavily delayed title.
The open-world adventure from Ubisoft Montreal has undergone quite a change in appearance since we first saw it way back at E3 2012, and now finally the Watch Dogs dev team are talking updated system requirements…
Creative director Jonathan Morin revealed the specs view Twitter, writing “Min:
IntelCore 2 Quad Q8400 2.66Ghz or AMDPhenom II X4 940 3.0Ghz, 6GB RAM, 1024 VRAM DirectX 11 Shader 5.0 SCard: DirectX9 25 GB.”
The goods news is, these are exactly the same as the Watch Dogs specs we revealed way back in April. The bad news is you’re still going to need 6GB minimum RAM if you want any chance of exploring a future vision of Chicago.
Watch Dogs Minimum System Requirements
OS: Win Vista SP2 64bit / Win 7 SP1 64bit / Win 8 64bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66Ghz / AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0Ghz
RAM: 6GB of System Memory
GPU RAM: 1024 VRAM and DX 11 capable GFX with Shader Model 5.0 capable tech
GPU: NVidia GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5770
AUDIO: DX9 capable audio card
No word on the recommended Watch Dogs system requirements yet, but judging from the lack of changes to minimum requirements for Watch Dogs we’d expect them to be unchanged. Check out the full Watch Dogs System Requirements here.
For those worried about the appearance of the recently released Watch Dogs trailer, Morin also wrote that this wasn't a good point of reference for how the final product would appear, saying "Guys... Trailer wasn't a good GFX ref. E3 2012 was PC as we always said and E3 2013 is PS4 reference. Was always the case..."
