We already know that Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry 3 has a pretty rubbish release date, but if you're not put off by waiting until December and you're wanting to pick up the PC version, here's some system specifications from Ubisoft:

Minimum specs:

  • DirectX9c graphics card with 512MB Video RAM
  • Dual-core CPU
  • 4GB Memory

Recommended specs:

  • DirectX11 graphics card with 1024MB Video RAM
  • Quad-core CPU
  • 4GB Memory

Hi-Performance specs:

  • Latest DirectX11 graphics card
  • Latest quad-core CPU
  • 8GB Memory

Although there is a "one-time activation process" needed via Ubisoft's Uplay PC software, there is thankfully no constant Internet connection required to play the game. Hamza did enjoy his time with Far Cry 3 at gamescom, but will our interest be whetted by the time December comes round? I know there's a few titles I'm anticipating more, with Dishonored and X-COM being the big two -- are you guys excited about Far Cry 3?

Ubisoft also gave more specific example PCs for each category:

Example minimum 1:

  • NVIDIA GTX8800
  • Intel Core2 Duo E6700

Example minimum 2:

  • AMD Radeon HD2900
  • AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+

Example recommended 1:

  • NVIDIA GTX480
  • Intel Core i3-530

Example recommended 2:

  • AMD Radeon HD5770
  • AMD Phenom II X2 565

Example hi-performance:

  • NVIDIA GTX680
  • Intel Core i7-2600K

Example hi-performance:

  • AMD Radeon HD7970
  • AMD Bulldozer FX4150
