Far Cry New Dawn PC Requirements Are Surprisingly Manageable

Ubisoft has finally revealed the Far Cry New Dawn PC Requirements – Minimum, Recommended. The minimum requirements for the game don’t really look that overwhelming, considering you just need a bare 2nd generation i5-2400 and a GTX 670 (2 GB variant). Heck, the fact that the game is only gonna take around 30 GB raises a lot of questions in my head. A lot of AAA games these days take at least 50 GBs.

Black Ops 4 takes 70+ GB, Battlefield 5 takes around 50 GB, and even Shadow of the Tomb Raider was 40 GB.

Of course, those are just the minimum requirements. Once you try to go above the bare minimum, the requirements rise up a LOT. To get a playable 60 FPS 1080P experience of the game, you need a 4th generation i7-4790/ AMD Ryzen 5 1600, and a GTX 970 (4 GB) or R9 290X (4 GB).

To play on a 4K screen with 60 FPS you’d need a 6th gen i7-6700K or at least a Ryzen 7 1700X with 16 gigs of RAM and at least a GTX 1080 working in SLi (8 GB Video Memory) or an RX Vega 56 (8 GB Video Memory). That’s at least a thousand bucks, if not more.

As for you Linux users, this may seem like some bad news, since the peripherals listed to work with the game are “Windows-compatible”. But of course, we’re talking about a game that’s gonna be out on Steam. And we all know how Steam is working on its own Steam Proton and hopefully, this game will also get stable compatibility.

Ubisoft has also listed that you need a CPU that is at least SSE4.1 compatible!
