The PC requirements and recommended specs needed for Far Cry 5 were announced today by the team at Ubisoft. Kirill Bragin, the PC Version Producer for Far Cry 5 says that the "PC has always been a key element of Far Cry's DNA, and this couldn't be truer with Far Cry 5."

Well, we'll see about that! Included with the news of the system requirements comes word that the game will include a benchmark utility along with a video memory usage meter. The PC release will allow you to control such options like a variable aspect ratio (presumably this means ultra wide-screen support), FOV adjustment, optional FPS locking, and resolution scaling. The team also notes that the game will support multi-GPU functionality. I assume this means there will be a driver update at or near release that enables SLI support for the game.

Below are four separate configurations, ranging from the bare minimum to what you'll need for the 4K at 60FPS experience.
