Those looking to play Assassin's Creed 3 on PC now have some hardware specs to prepare their rigs with, and that might even mean upgrading their operating system.
The hardware requirements for Assassin's Creed 3 are a step up from what we have seen from any other releases in the series, even the gorgeous Assassin's Creed: Revelations. RAM requirements have increased from 1.5GB to 2GB, and video memory has gone up by a substantial 256MB. It's only natural to assume that we're in for one spectacular journey through colonial America.
