I’ve slowly been getting more and more hyped about the release of Watch Dogs 2 next month. I know I shouldn’t, seeing as it’s essentially the hype that killed the first game for me (also, Aiden Pearce), but the sequel legitimately looks like a blast.
The game was originally expected to launch on 15 November for both console and PC, but according to a recent post on Ubisoft’s blog, PC gamers will only be able to get their hands on it two weeks later. But hey, at least they softened the blow by releasing the game’s full system requirements. Details below.
Delays are never a fun thing, but at least it sounds like Ubisoft has pretty good reasons for pushing the game’s PC release date to 29 November. According to the blurb, Watch Dogs 2 on PC will come jam-packed with extra features like “support for full 4K resolution with Ultra Textures and Extra Details options; an uncapped framerate; and a host of other features and options specifically requested by the Watch Dogs 2 community.” Polishing and optimising these enhancements is cited as the reason for the delay.
Now that all of that’s out of the way, let’s take a gander at the game’s system requirements courtesy of another UbiBlog post.
Supported OS – (64-bit versions only): Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
