Far Cry 5 PC system requirements revealed for 1080p and 4K

The PC version of Far Cry 5 arrives tomorrow along with the console version - here's all you need to know about PC specs.

Far Cry 5 developer Ubisoft is promising proper PC support come launch. The PC port will bring often-requested features that aren't always found in Ubisoft games like the option to lock the frame-rate, set a desired FOV, and enhance the image with resolution scaling.

Far Cry 5 on PC will also support a wide range of aspect rations, but Ubisoft is also including a benchmark feature, and, as seen in many modern games, a video memory usage meter.

We have four sets of PC requirements for the different resolutions and graphics presets. Starting from 720p on low, all the way up to 4K 60fps on high/ultra.
