Does your PC have what it takes to run The Division? Time to find out.

Ubisoft has released the official minimum and recommended PC specs for the online shooter, so take a gander at the list below.

The developer has also released a couple of screenshots taken from the PC version. Those are posted below the specs list in lovely 4K. Click on each to have a better look.

The beta for The Division goes live January 28 on Xbox One and on PC and PlayStation 4 January 29. The tester ends on January 31 on all platforms.

The beta will be available for pre-load 48 hours prior to launch, which will give you enough time to clear over 26GB worth of hard drive space if needed.
