Far Cry 6 PC system requirements are quite demanding, requires beefy PC to play at its best

We are just under a month away before we can start exploring the island of Yara, and thankfully Ubisoft has finally revealed the official PC system requirements for Far Cry 6. As is usual with Ubisoft games, they've given us an extensive amount of specs to choose our quality settings from, including 1080p, 1440p, 4K, with ray tracing on or off, as well as the performance each one will achieve.

Most notably, Far Cry 6 seems to be a pretty demanding game, and that's without ray tracing enabled already. If you're rcoking some mid-range hardware, then expect to get just below 60fps at 1080p, depending on your graphics settings. If you really want to play FC6 at its absolute best though, you will need some beefy graphics power.

There is a saving grace though: Far Cry 6 will include AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) - which Nvidia GPUs can also use - and the below specs are calculated without FSR enabled. So after enabling FSR, you should be able to get a slight boost to performance depending on your hardware and level of quality.

Lastly, FC6 on PC will include many PC-specific features, such as: uncapped frame rates, in-depth customization options, hybrid input and extended control customization, multi-monitor and widescreen support, an in-game benchmark tool for performance analysis, and of course ray tracing and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution support.

SO let's dive in and take a look at the official Far Cry PC system requirements...
