Some pretty hefty hardware is required to enable all the bells and whistles.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs: Legion is still more than a month away but the system requirements for the PC version have been revealed. There are actually several sets of requirements, from running the game at 1080p resolution and Low settings to 4K resolution and Ultra Settings. The requirements for ray-tracing are the most hefty though.
If one is running the game at 1080p resolution and High settings with ray-tracing, then an Intel i5-9600K (or AMD Ryzen 5 3600), Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 with 8 GB VRAM and 16 GB RAM is required. At Ultra settings and 4K, you’ll need an Intel Core i7-9700K or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X with an RTX 2080 Ti with 11 GB VRAM and 16 GB RAM. Installation size is the same across the board at 45 GB but an additional 20 GB is required for HD textures.
Check out all of the system requirements below. Watch Dogs: Legion is out on October 29th for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It launches on November 10th for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X so if ray-tracing on PC proves too expensive, perhaps next-gen consoles will be a better choice.
