Ubisoft Unveils Far Cry 3 PC Requirements


Check out the Far Cry 3 PC specs and then tell the world about your worst vacation ever with personalized “Holiday From Hell” postcards.

Two scenarios could play out when you tell the guy behind the counter that you want a copy of Far Cry 3. He could say, “Which console do you have?” and you’ll tell him, and he’ll hand you the appropriate package and send you on your way; or he might say, “What video card do you have,” at which point you can enjoy a momentary swell of pride as your status among the elite is once again reaffirmed.

The downside is that you’ll also actually need to know what kind of video card you have, and so to assist you in preparing for the big moment Ubisoft has revealed what kind of video card you’ll need, plus a few other tidbits of potentially useful information as well. Pay attention!

Minimum Spec:

  • Processor: 2.66 GHz Intel® Core™2 Duo E6700 or 3.00 GHz AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 6000+ or better

Make ‘Em Jealous Spec:

While you wait for Far Cry 3 to launch, you can pass a little time with the “Holiday From Hell” postcard maker, a Facebook app that lets you create and send personalized tropical paradise greeting cards to all your friends and enemies. Yes, it’s Facebook, and I know that’ll turn some of you off, but it’s actually very easy to use and as you can see, the results are undeniably spectacular – although not everyone is going to have the same quality of sexy source material as me.

Far Cry 3 comes out on December 4 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
