Watch Dogs: Legion offers updated ray tracing PC specs

Watch Dogs: Legion looks to be a very demanding game in these updated PC specs.

The official PC requirements for Watch Dogs: Legion were actually announced back in September, but this week, Ubisoft revealed an updated list with more details on ray tracing.

Legion, of course, offers ray traced reflections and supports Nvidia’s upscaling tech DLSS. The new set of requirements more specifically reveal which DLSS mode is required at each of the different resolutions. They also incorporate the new RTX 3000-series cards into the list.

The non-ray tracing specs have not changed, and the ray tracing specs have gained a new middle point between 1080p and 4K, with that being 1440p. Unfortunately, though the specs are fairly detailed, they don’t mention framerate targets, which is going to be the deciding factor for most when switching between the different modes.

Read on below for all the updated ray tracing requirements.
