Assassin's Creed IV PC system requirements bury 32 bit, don't mark the spot

In what in the space of an afternoon is beginning to look like a blanket policy, Ubisoft have standardised 64 bit Windows for their next-gen Assassin’s Creed.

As in the Watch Dogs system requirements outed earlier, Ubisoft have dropped their support for 32 bit operating systems - although the translated specs uncovered at 3DJuegos suggest Windows 8 32 bit users will be just fine.

Black Flag’s a full 10 gig bigger than Watch Dogs, too, presumably on account of all the oceans.

Here’s the bottom line, techwise:

  • Operating System: Windows Vista SP SP1 or Windows 7 or Windows 8 (both 32/64bit versions)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400@2.6 GHz or AMD Athlon II X4 620@2.6 GHz 
  • RAM: 2GB for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 
  • Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or AMD Radeon HD 4870 (512MB VRAM with Shader Model 4.0 or higher) 
  • DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable 
  • Disk Space: 30 Gb 
  • Sound: DirectX compatible sound card with latest drivers 
  • Peripherals: Windows-compliant keyboard and mouse required, optional controller

And the recommended version: 

  • Operating System: Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8 (both 32/64bit versions)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 2400S@2.5 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940@3.0 GHz or better 
  • RAM: 4GB or more 
  • Video card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 or AMD Radeon HD 5850 (1024MB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0) or better 
  • Supported video cards at the time of release: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or better, GT400, GT500, GT600, GT700 or AMD Radeon HD4870 series or better, HD5000, HD6000, HD7000 series*
  • Note: Latest GeForce drivers tested: 320.49 for all series. Latest Radeon drivers tested: 13.1 for Radeon HD4000, 13.4 for Radeon HD5000 and above. 

*Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT officially supported.

Watch Ubi’s latest boat heist trailer below, but bear in mind that the true cost of a pirate’s life might be an expensive upgrade to Windows 8. Is it worth it?
