PC Specs for Watch Dogs 2 Revealed, Release Date Pushed Back

Gotta get that 4k

The minimum and recommended specs for the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 are out there now. The good news is that the recommended specs aren't that intensive, so most folks who have a fairly recent computer will be in good shape. The bad news is you'll have to wait a couple weeks after the console version hits the market.

The dev team behind Watch Dogs 2 is taking that extra time to make a few enhancements to the PC version. Specifically:


  • 4K support
  • Stuttering/lag framerate optimization – We employed a fix that makes all controls much more responsive and less framerate-related. We’ve optimized resource creation, GPU VRAM upload and required VRAM for the game
  • No FPS cap
  • Full SLI/Crossfire support at launch
  • Multiple save file support – This feature allows players to have up to three auto save slots for three separate playthroughs.
  • Multi-monitor support with borderless mode and advanced settings that allow for customized placement of menu and HUD.
  • Multiple windowed mode options – Windowed mode with flexible/resizable windows, multi-monitor borderless

Improved Graphic Features

  • Screen Space Reflections
  • Headlight Shadows – Support for additional shadows from car headlights
  • Extra Details Options – Increases the level of detail for all objects in the game, and adds more details to objects in the distance

Improved Graphics Options

  • FOV sliders
  • Pixel Density sliders
  • Sharpness sliders
  • Ultra Textures pack available at launch
  • Anti-aliasing options:
    • TXAA
    • MSAA
    • Post Processing Anti-Aliasing options SMAA and FXAA

Improved Keyboard/Mouse controls

  • Full adaptation with mouse and keyboard

Watch Dogs 2 will support four player online co-op throughout the campaign. It's slated for release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 15, with the PC version (now) to follow a couple weeks later on November 29.
