Ubisoft has finally announced the exact graphics card requirements for PC gamers to use the ray-tracing tech for Watch Dogs Legion.
The upcoming game, Watch Dogs Legion, impressed everybody with its sleek gameplay and technology for PC. The game studio has released a statement last month (September) discussing the upcoming game’s PC requirements to those looking to purchase it.
Now, Ubisoft has released more details about Watch Dogs Legion’s ability to use ray-tracing. Here is what you need to know.
PC Requirements for the Ray-tracing Tech
According to Ubisoft, Watch Dogs Legion will need many systems requirements to project the visuals as expected and offer the best gaming experience on a PC. The list of configurations has been published, so we know what to expect.
Ubisoft focused on the necessary graphics cards and how the new tech will allow players to see everything in exceptional detail.
The PC specifications announced for Watch Dogs Legion show what the ray-tracing tech will enable, and the options for 1080p high, 1440p high, and 4K ultra settings. Also, the system is said to support the Nvidia line of GeForce RTX graphics cards. However, there are other types of graphics cards that can enable that tech.
For instance, if you want the game to work at 1080p, you’ll need an RTX 2060 graphics card on the High preset, while for the 1440p, an RTX 3070 graphics card is required.
But, if your gaming experience must be at a 4K resolution, then you’ll need an RTX 3080 graphics card.
Disabling the Ray-tracing
Ubisoft explained if gamers want to disable the ray-tracing tech, they’ll need other requirements. That involves an Nvidia GeForce graphics card or an AMD Radeon card that meets the maximum and minimum requirements.
The high 1440p will need an Nvidia RTX 2050 Super or an AMD Radeon RTX, while the 1080p, a GTX 1660 super, or 1060. For the 4K, gamers will need one of two Nvidia graphics cards.
With those specs, gamers should be able to run the upcoming Watch Dogs Legion game just fine on their PCs.
Watch Dogs Legion will be launched for PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Stadia users on October 29. PS5 and Xbox Series X variants will be released on November 12.
