Far Cry New Dawn PC system requirements revealed

The latest game in the Far Cry series, Far Cry: New Dawn, was revealed at the Game Awards last month and is due out next month on February 15. The game’s due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and as usual PC owners are often stuck wondering if their own computers can run this new game. Well, wonder no longer, because we now have the Far Cry New Dawn PC system requirements, from minimum specifications all the way up to Ultra settings with 4K support.

What are the Far Cry New Dawn PC system requirements?

You can find the full list of PC system requirements for Far Cry New Dawn below.

Will I need to play Far Cry New Dawn on Uplay, Steam, or Epic Games Store?

This is a valid question for PC owners, as Ubisoft has mixed its messages somewhat when it comes to what digital distribution platform you’ll be able to play its games on. Normally Ubisoft games can be bought on Steam, but are still played (and can also be bought on) Ubisoft’s own Uplay digital client. However, Ubisoft confused matters by announcing that The Division 2 would release on Uplay and the Epic Games Store, not Steam. However, we can confirm that Far Cry New Dawn will not be on the Epic Games Store, and will be on Steam and Uplay like with previous games in the series.
