About three months ago we got our hands on the system requirements for the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed technical test. Since then Ubisoft has been busy beavering away on development and the official system requirements for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands have been altered a little, asking for more firepower in the graphics card department. 

Ghost Recon Wildlands Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400S 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-4320 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7 270X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 50GB available space

Ghost Recon Wildlands Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 50GB available space

For comparison's sake you can view the original Ghost Recon Wildlands system requirements here. For the most part what we said there remains the same here. There's only a few minor tweaks to speak of and what ultimately have here is a more reasonably set of system requirements.

Beginning with Ghost Recon Wildlands minimum system specs, the only changes here are to the RAM (upped to 6GB minimum from 4GB), a single graphics card (Radeon R7 260X increased to an R7 270X) and the total installation size of 50GB. The graphics card bump does leap Ghost Recon Wildlands minimum requirements up a level but this only serves to bring the AMD card in line with Nvidia's GTX 660. Evidently during early testing Ubisoft also discovered 4GB RAM wasn't capable of delivering decent performance in GR: Wildlands.

As for the recommend requirements for Ghost Recon Wildlands, the only change here is to the GPUs. In real terms it doesn't make much of a difference (it used to be a GTX 970 or R9 Fury) but Ubisoft now recommends the latest generation of graphics cards with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and the Radeon RX 480 4GB edition. 

Take a glance over to the AAA Game System Requirements chart on the right and you'll see Ghost Recon Wildlands is roughly in line with other AAA games. The graphics card demands demands are a little on the high side but it's nothing major, and we're being let off lightly with the 8GB RAM requirement.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Ghost Recon Wildlands System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Ghost Recon Wildlands GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Ghost Recon Wildlands Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

I received an email from Nvidia today with a code to be redeemed through GeForce Experience for a code to the Beta. The Geforce redeem page errors out with "We were unable to process your coupon due to technical difficulties. Try later."

Chatted with Nvidia tech support. You can't redeem an Nvidia game code with SLI enabled. I disabled it. Rebooted. Redeemed code through GF Exper. which prompted login to UPlay where closed beta was activated to my account. Rebooted. :)

You both should be fine to run on low - though I think you will have a better experience, playing on 900p, just in case
