Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – PC Requirements Also Revealed – Only Supports 64-bit OSs

Assassins Creed IV Black Flag v3

Assassin’s Creed fans, this is for you. Alongside the PC requirements for Watch Dogs, Ubisoft has also revealed the PC requirements for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. According to the game’s official UPLAY page, PC gamers will at least need a quad-core and a 64-bit system. Now I don’t know if this is the latest “next-gen” list that Ubisoft invented, but the specs look somehow similar to those of Watch Dogs (despite the fact that they use different game engines… and the fact that an 8-core is not recommended). Overall, it will be interesting to put this game to the test. You can view the complete specs list below.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
