Just Cause 3 system requirements revealed – Rico likes a beefy rig

Just Cause 3’s system requirements have officially been released by developer Avalanche Studios, and while you’ll hardly need to SLI a trio of 970s to run Rico’s sandbox, the recommended specs aren’t exactly insubstantial. 

Eager for more open-world action? Here are the best sandbox games on PC.

The official PC specs were recently revealed on the game’s Steam page. Let your eyeballs suck ’em up:

Minimum Specifications

  • OS: Vista SP2, Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K, 3.3 Ghz | AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3 Ghz
  • Memory: 6GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (2GB) | AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB)

Recommended Specifications

  • OS: Vista SP2, Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB Ram
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 (3GB) | AMD R9 290 (4GB)

A 3GB GTX 780 is hardly chump change territory, but seeing as Avalanche recently released a video of Just Cause 3 in 4K, this is a game that has seemingly been designed to push your rig.

The game is out December 1st. Personally, I loved Just Cause 2 – it was glorious fun to muck about in. If the sequel can maintain those wonderful traversal mechanics, and finally insert some non-shonky story missions, you may just be in for another sandbox Christmas treat.
