It's a New Dawn, it's a new day, and the system requirements for Far Cry: New Dawn have us feeling good. Ubisoft has provided us with an extensive look at the system specs for FC: New Dawn, a standalone pseudo-sequel to Far Cry 5 that transports us into a post-apocalyptic, blissfully colourful and bloodthirsty world.

"We are very proud of what our team achieved with the PC version of Far Cry New Dawn and cannot wait for PC players to discover the post-apocalyptic scenario we've created," said Raphael Parent, tech director at Ubisoft Montreal. "The bold art direction we have taken for this game is all about a colorful, hopeful, and inviting world, which we know will benefit a great deal from the power of current PC hardware. We hope that players will love the fresh new look of Far Cry New Dawn."

I don't expect there are many folks planning to play Far Cry: New Dawn who haven't played Far Cry 5. If you have, this is pretty straightforward to you. Far Cry New Dawn's system requirements are almost 100% identical to Far Cry 5's system specs. Head over to most modern GPU pages and you can see the expected frame rates for your graphics cards in Far Cry 5 and this FPS should also apply to FC: New Dawn.

For AMD CPU and Nvidia GPU users, they are the same. For AMD users there is a slight increase to the minimum spec GPU, from a Radeon R9 270 up to a Radeon R9 270X. For Intel users the recommended spec CPU has risen from a Core i7-4770 up to a core i7-4790. These are all extremely minor changes though and we expect FC: New Dawn's PC performance to be exactly on par with FC5.

As these are last year's specs the Ultra 4K requirements are also a little out of doubt. A GeForce GTX 1080 SLI or Radeon RX Vega 56 Crossfire configuration is required to hit 4K 60 frames per second. Very few people actually have this setup though, and we now have a very capable single-GPU solution with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and, possibly, the Radeon VII.
