Those crazy system requirements for Assassin’s Creed Unity have been confirmed by Ubisoft

Assassin's Creed Unity system requirements

When Assassin’s Creed Unity’s system requirements were leaked, yesterday, they were hard to believe. A minimum GPU requirement of a 680? For a multiplatform game? Nonsense. Unfortunately, these are the official requirements, and Ubisoft has confirmed them. 

This is what Ubisoft says you’ll need to just run the game:

  • Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.0 GHz
  • 6 GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 GB VRAM)
  • DirectX 11
  • 50 GB available space

And here’s what Ubisoft recommends:

  • Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or better
  • 8GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290X (3 GB VRAM)
  • DirectX 11
  • 50 GB available space

It will be very interesting to see how accurate these requirements are. It would never have occurred to me that a publisher would puff up requirements, since that would obviously stop people below them from purchasing the game, but since Bethesda did it with The Evil Within, there’s precedence.
