Ubisoft has published the system requirements for Far Cry 6, which is scheduled to be released on October 7 this year. Ubisoft again specifies the hardware required for what resolution, how many images per second and with ray tracing activated or disabled.
37 GB for high-resolution decorations
The game always requires at least 60 GB of free hard disk space. Another 37 GB is required for optional HD installations.
In Full HD with 30 fps without ray tracing, Far Cry 6 requires, for example, an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Core i5-4460 processor in relation to a 4GB AMD Radeon RX 460 or an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 with 4 gigabyte. Ubisoft specs 8 GB of RAM.
Ray tracing greatly increases the requirements
For WQHD (1440p) with 60fps and ray tracing, the developer selects at least an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X or Intel Core i5-10600, AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT with 16GB, or an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 with 8GB. The RAM required for the system doubles to 16 GB. Without ray tracing, however, an AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or Intel Core i7-9700 with an AMD Radeon RX 5700XT with 8GB or an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super with 8GB is enough for this resolution and 60fps.
Ubisoft mentions 30 fps as a maximum for UHD
If you want to play Far Cry 6 in Ultra HD with 30fps and then also want to activate ray tracing, you need at least an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or Intel Core i7-10700k with AMD Radeon RX 6800 16GB or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with a capacity of 10 GB. However, even the fastest graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia, the Radeon RX 6900 XT and GeForce RTX 3090, don’t seem to achieve a refresh rate of 60 fps, because Ubisoft doesn’t mention any higher than UHD setting with 30 fps.
