Far Cry New Dawn System Requirements Detailed Including 4K 60FPS Specs

Far Cry New Dawn

Early in December 2018, Ubisoft revealed a new entry in the Far Cry franchise entitled Far Cry New Dawn. This post-apocalyptic title releases on 15 February on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Gamers who prefer the latter platform needs to know if their gaming rig is up to the task of running this awesome-looking, direct follow-up to Far Cry 5. That’s where the Far Cry New Dawn system requirements come in and Ubisoft has now detailed them in full, including what type of specs you will need to run the game in 4K at 60FPS.

Even though there are some minor adjustments to the minimum system requirements, if you had a smooth experience in Far Cry 5 then you are set for New Dawn. Raphael Parent, the tech director at Ubisoft Montreal, had this to say in the Far Cry New Dawn system requirements post:

We are very proud of what our team achieved with the PC version of Far Cry New Dawn and cannot wait for PC players to discover the post-apocalyptic scenario we’ve created. The bold art direction we have taken for this game is all about a colourful, hopeful, and inviting world, which we know will benefit a great deal from the power of current PC hardware. We hope that players will love the fresh new look of Far Cry New Dawn.

It is a bit strange to not see the GeForce RTX range in the top end Far Cry New Dawn system requirements, but I’m sure a GeForce RTX 2060 will do just fine looking at 4K 30FPS judging by its performance compared to the GTX 1070. There is no indication just yet if Far Cry New Dawn will make use of Ray-Tracing technology, but even without it, the game looks fantastic as you can see from the announcement trailer.

Does your gaming rig have what it takes to run Far Cry New Dawn and which configuration are you looking at? Let us know in the comment section below.
