Saying Ubisoft doesn't have the best record when it comes to PC optimisation of games would be something of an understatement.

However, whilst running the likes of Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs on PC has, on occasion, felt rather like trying to fit a horse in a mouse hole, the team at Ubisoft Montpellier has tended to buck the trend. Rayman Legends, for instance, would run happily on a Pentium IV processor. Ubisoft Montpellier's latest game Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a 2D story-driven title, so we'd expect fairly low requirements. The studio revealed the official specs today, so we took a look over them to see what kind of machine you'll need to run this title ...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP

CPU: Intel Pentium IV @ 3.0 GHz or AMD Athlon64 3000 + @ 1.8 GHz

RAM: 2 GB RAM

HD: 6 GB

GPU: nVidia GeForce 6800GT or AMD Radeon X1950 Pro

DX: 9.00

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+@ 2 GHz

RAM: 2 GB RAM

HD: 6 GB

GPU: : nVidia GeForce 9600GT or AMD Radeon HD3850

DX: 9.00

Wow. It's been a while since we've seen these kind of requirements from a Ubisoft title. In fact, we know exactly how long it's been; these requirements are more or less identical to Rayman Legends, the only difference being that Valiant Hearts is only asking 2GB RAM recommended. 

That being said, it's a 2D, comic-book style title, so it would be crazy if we were looking at really high specs, but Child Of Light wanted a dual-core CPU as minimum in spite of being 2D, so you can't take these things for granted. Good news is, Valiant Hearts should run pretty well on low-end rigs, and looks well suited for those gaming on laptop. It looks set to be comfortable on Intel HD 4000 mobile, and should run on basically any fairly modern GPU.

What do you think of these Valiant Heart system requirements? Will you be checking this game out?

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is out June 25th on PC.

i think u r wrong, comparing 2d game optimization with 3d ones. Its true 2d games run great even on a p4 pc,but still they have a bad record in making optimized 3d games on pc(thats not a understatement). all said i love 2d games especially from ubi(always miss rayman).
