Ubisoft has revealed the official system requirements for its upcoming open-world FPS title, Far Cry 3. The good news here is that Far Cry 3 will support DX11 (for high-end GPUs), as well as DX9 and Windows XP. The bad news is that these system requirements are so generic that do not provide us anything worth writing about. Ubisoft did not even provide us with the Hard-Disk requirements, or the ‘real’ release date for the PC version of its title. Because, let’s face it – this game will most probably get delayed at the last month or so. Pretty much like every Ubisoft game.
Anyway, withour further delay, here are the system requirements of Far Cry 3:

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