Far Cry 3 System Requirements and DRM Details Revealed

It'll be a far cry if you can run this on max settings.

The Far Cry series has always pushed computers to their brink, generating some truly impressive visuals that rival even Crysis back in the day.  Ubisoft have revealed the system requirements for Far Cry 3, including the minimum, recommended and the OMG LOOK WHAT MY COMPUTER DOES setting.

For the latter, you're definitely going to need something that is bleeding edge.  

Minimum Specs

  • CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6700/AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+ or equivalent dual-core
  • Video: Nvidia GTX8800/AMD Radeon HD2900 or equivalent 512MB DirectX 9c card
  • Memory: 4GB

Recommended Specs

  • CPU: Intel Core i3-530/AMD Phenom II X2 565 or equivalent quad-core
  • Video: Nvidia GTX480/AMD Radeon HD5770 or equivalent 1024MB DirectX 11 card
  • Memory: 4GB

Hi-Performance Specs

  • Video: Nvidia GTX680/AMD Radeon HD7970 or equivalent shiny new DirectX 11 card
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K/AMD Bulldozer FX4150 or equivalent quad-core
  • Memory: 8GB

The DRM involves a one-time activation through Uplay. You'll only need to be online if you want to play the game's co-op or versus multiplayer.  This differs wildly from previous Ubisoft titles in which it required an always on internet connection even for single player.  

Far Cry 3 launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on December 4th.  It features a four player online co-op campaign.
