‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ PC Requirements Are Surprising

 

Over the past few years PC requirements for new releases have been mostly an afterthought. In most cases, while some games require a high end rig to run at Ultra settings, others can get by with a moderately priced one. Soon, however, it seems we might be reaching a tipping point where the mid-range PC no longer cuts it.

This week, for example, Ubisoft unveiled their minimum and recommended PC requirements for Assassin’s Creed Unity, and let’s just say this game is no slouch. In fact, we’d reckon that gamers who haven’t recently invested in a new video card will be wholly out of luck when it comes to playing this game.
