Assasins Creed Unity System Requirements, Higher Than You Might Expect.

Yesterday, blog.ubi.com posted the official PC system requirements for Assassin’s Creed Unity only for the internet to explode in discussion about just how dam high they are.

Will Assassins Creed Unity on PC actually make use of the recommended i7 CPU and GTX 780 video card or is just a poor port that suffers out of the box from performance issues? We hope its the former but only time will tell.

 

 

Lets take a look the requirements as posted yesterday;

With a lot of fans of the series (us included) placing high hopes on Unity on the back of the well received Black Flag, here at Evatech we are crossing our fingers and toes that those right minimum requirements are a sign of amazing visuals and mechanics that demand that compute power, making full use of the $1,500 rig it requires to play it.
