The Crew 2 System Requirements Are Here
By Jon Sutton on May 22nd, 2018 at 05:19pm - original article from game-debate

The Crew 2 is kicking off a large-scale beta test at the end of this month and in the meantime, Ubisoft has revealed the official PC system requirements for its massive open-world racer. For the first time in the series, players can take to land, sea, and air, for racing hijinks, both online and offline. Flying a high-speed jet through a packed city surely doesn't take it easy on your graphics hardware though. Here's what you'll need to run The Crew 2 on PC.

The Crew 2 Minimum System Requirements for 30 FPS Low @ 1080p

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400S 2.5GHz or AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870 2GB
  • HDD: TBA
  • API: DirectX 11

The Crew 2 Recommended System Requirements for 30 FPS High @ 1080p

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 270X
  • HDD: TBA
  • API: DirectX 11

The Crew 2 Recommended System Requirements for 60 FPS High @ 1080p

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 470 8GB
  • HDD: TBA
  • API: DirectX 11

Visually, The Crew 2 is already looking leagues ahead of the original, with much more detailed environments, that awesome folding-world Inception effect, and the ability to switch between vehicle types on the fly, dropping from the sky into a speedboat or taking off from a highway as you transform into a jet. The Crew 2 should be a sight to behold for racing fans, and this reflects in the much higher system requirements for The Crew 2 compared to the original.

Despite the advances though, The Crew 2 isn't a particularly demanding game. In terms of the minimum specs, these are aimed at 1080p / 30fps, and a mid-range, five-year-old system will do the job. In a racing game a steady frame rate is crucial though, so if you're near the minimum requirements for The Crew 2 then it may pay to drop to 720p.

The recommended specs for The Crew 2 are also quite forgiving, falling right around the average for a AAA game in 2018. A decent quad-core processor clocked at 3.2GHz+ will net you 60fps at 1080p, paired with a GTX 970 or Radeon RX 470 with at least 4GB VRAM. If you've got a GeForce GTx 1060 or a Radeon RX 480/580 then you're going to be able to run The Crew 2 without a hitch. The Crew 2's recommended RAM requirements are also more forgiving than the average, with 8GB required across the board.

On PC we're going to be treated to full 4K and ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio support in The Crew 2, as well as multi-monitors, driving wheel support, mouse and keyboard inputs, gamepad support, and fully customisable graphics options.
