Far Cry 5 is out in not a long time at all, bringing the franchise’s brand off off-the-wall open world mayhem to Montana. I’m still a little reserved about the direction the game’s gone in, but our own Darryn loved his hands-on time with the game, particularly enjoying how varied and offbeat its missions are.

This time, it’ll allow for co-operative play through the entire game, so you can take on religious fundamentalism with a friend. If you plan on playing the game on Pc though, this is how devout a PC gamer you’ll have to be. Ubisoft has release the minimum and recommended specs, detailing the sort of machine you’ll have to have to put Joseph Seed in the ground. Interestingly, they’ve detailed specs for 4K at 30fps and 4K at 60fps too, for those with more money than they know what to do with.

4K 30 FPS CONFIGURATION

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit version only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.6 GHz or equivalent

4K 60 FPS CONFIGURATION

  • Resolution: 2160p
  • Video Preset: High/Ultra

Judging by those specs, I’d be able to run the game at 4K 30fps with some room to spare, but that 60fps spec is a little out of my league. Far Cry 5 is out on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 27, 2018.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
