Watch Dogs Legion – Here’s the PC requirements for bashing the fash in 4K

There’s a month and some change to go until Watch Dogs Legion hits the streets of merry ol’ London for a game of bash the fash. As per usual with every Ubisoft game, the hack ‘em up sandbox is being trotted out to every platform that can support the game, which includes current-gen consoles, next-gen successors and of course, PC.

Watch Dogs Legion on PC should look particularly impressive, as it has ray tracing support, can fool the eyes with DLSS features that lighten the rendering load, and can even be played in 8K resolutions if you’ve got the hardware capable of such a feat. And a bottle of liquid nitrogen handy so that you can cool your screaming GPU down. So what will you need to run the game exactly?

Ubisoft has posted the official specs for the game, which ranges from not bad on the low and recommended settings, all the way up to third mortgage thoughts dancing around in your meat-space when you take a gander at what you’ll need to hit the ultra settings. I’m just kidding, it’s not taxing. Plus the game includes robot bees as a character power, so game of the year material I guess.

      You are dreaming if you think consoles are competitive with PC’s, as for the prices in SA, well yeah its expensive here because we are overcharged for technology no matter what it is.

        I will never go back to PC gaming. Gaming on Consoles get better and better over the live span of the console. Just look at the graphic achievements with the Last of us Part 2, and Ghost of tsushima. I can not imagine what will happen at the end of the PS5 live cycle.

        A high end PC can theoretically out perform a console, however it requires constant hardware upgrades. Unfortunately also because of constant hardware changes development houses just demand the latest and greatest to run there games, a vicious cycle. While with consoles the hardware stays constant, making development easier and better over time

        I wonder how many gamers on PC actually game in 4K or for that matter has a SSD, or game on a 55″ or 65″ screens, most console gamers have been doing it for a while now since most modern TV’s has 4K Ultra capability,

        That specific graphics card is 30K in South-Africa, that is just the card now add all the other bits to use that card optimally and you are looking at 60K minimum without a screen.
