Watch Dogs: Legion Official System Requirements Are Out And They Are Incredibly High

Watch Dogs: Legion is launching in less than two months, and we are hyped for it. From what we have seen from the trailer, the game looks incredibly beautiful, and is a true next-gen experience. However, good graphics demand a good PC. Yesterday, Ubisoft revealed the official PC system requirements for the game, and oh boy, are they high.

It seems like WDL will require a beefy PC, just like the original Watch Dogs and its sequel. While the game doesn’t need a strong PC for 1080p Low or High settings, things take a turn for the worse when you aim for 1440p or 4K. Developer Ubisoft also told us what kind of hardware you will need if you want to play with ray tracing turned on.

All the different system requirements are mentioned below and on the official site. Unfortunately, Ubisoft did not mention whether these settings are for 30FPS or 60. If it is for 30FPS, then the hardware to run the game on 60FPS isn’t even out yet. Maybe Nvidia will save us with their upcoming RTX 3000 series.
