After last week's Assassin's Creed Unity bombshell, it's nice to see some minimum requirements that won't make your PC look like an archeological relic. Ubisoft has outlined the requirements for the PC version of The Crew, and it looks like the open-world racer will run on even modest systems.
The minimum requirements call for a 64-bit version of Windows 7 SP1 or newer along with the following:
In case you've lost your decoder ring, the GeForce GTX 260 and Radeon HD 4870 sold for around $250 in late 2008. Back then, the iPad was a glimmer in Steve Jobs' eye, and Call of Duty games were still good.
That's the minimum, though. Ubisoft's post also quotes "recommended" requirements:
...and "optimal" requirements (which, I guess, are more like helpful suggestions):
Those "optimal" specs, by the way, are still more modest than the minimum ones for Assassin's Creed Unity. I'll concede that The Crew doesn't look nearly as visually impressive, but the racer does let you drive around an open-world reproduction of the entire continental United States. So, that counts for something.
The Crew comes out on December 2 for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
