Like previous chapters in the series, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 6 is shaping up to be a scenic sandbox to cause some mayhem inside of. If you’re planning to pick the game up on PC before it launches in October, you can see if your rig is ready to run it as Ubisoft has released the official PC requirements for Far Cry 6.
The good news is that on even modest machines, Far Cry 6 should be able to run just fine provided that you don’t mind cutting back on some visual flair. PC users with a high-end machine can expect the game to render Giancarlo Esposito in detailed 4K resolution, with ray tracing, an uncapped frame rate, scaled resolution for ultrawide displays, and a built-in benchmarking tool also being part of the graphical package.

After a few hours with the game, Michael Higham had some strong praise for the game and its bolder design choices. If you’re planning to play the game on console instead of PC, there’s a chance to do so in style as Microsoft is giving away a special edition system themed around the game, which sports a very unique design that looks like it was put together by guerilla game developers. Far Cry 6 launches on October 7 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and PC.
