Far Cry 6 PC Features And System Requirements Revealed (VIDEO)

Far Cry 6 PC Ray Tracing

Based on what we’ve seen so far, Far Cry 6 is looking to be the most vibrant and dynamic open-world shooter of the series yet, sporting untold depths of combat, narrative, as well as add-on content. This ingenuity appears to have carried over to the PC experience as well, with ​​Ubisoft Kyiv highlighting a number of unique PC features as well as the developer’s strive for “the best possible experience” on high-end hardware.

With that in mind, Far Cry 6 on PC is confirmed to include support for visual enhancements like Ray Tracing and FidelityFX, enabling shiny puddles, dynamic shadows, and crispier rendering. The port also boasts features like uncapped framerates and a high refresh rate, in addition to standard ​​frame rate lock and adaptive resolution. Also in the name of visuals, high-performance users will have access to an HD Textures Pack, adding an even greater level of detail.

On top of that, PC players are also getting such tools as a built-in benchmark tool, in-menu previews for graphics settings, ​as well as customizable gamepad and keyboard/mouse controls. If that wasn’t enough, Far Cry 6 comes packed with ultrawide and multi-monitor support, an in-game photo mode, as well as a number of ​​accessibility features like closed captions, a colorblind mode, and text-to-speech capability. Check out the video below.

Even with all these fancy and admittedly gorgeous visual showcases, it looks like Far Cry 6 will be pretty flexible for most modern PC setups. The game’s official system requirements only require 60 GB of HDD or SSD space alongside 8 GB of RAM, and 4 GB of VRAM to achieve a bare minimum of 1080p/30 FPS. As one might expect, requirements only jump up from there, encapsulating 1440p and 4K resolutions, 60 FPS, Ray Tracing, as well as the aforementioned HD Textures Pack, which takes up 37 MB of extra HDD/SSD space. Check out the full system requirements below.
