Hooray, it’s a Ubi day today. After the release of Far Cry 3’s and Splinter Cell: Blacklist’s trailers, the French company has decided to unveil the minimum PC requirements for Assassin’s Creed 3. PC gamers will need 16GB of disk space, a DX9 card and a dual-core CPU.
And even though Assassin’s Creed 3 will be a DX9 title, it will not support Microsoft’s old OS, Windows XP. As a result of that, PC gamers will need 4GB RAM to enjoy it, even though the company states that 2GB will be the minimum requirement for the game.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is currently planned for a November 23rd release on the PC.
