With 12 days to go until the game's cross-platform release, Ubisoft has outlined the kind of hardware you'll need to play Far Cry 4. It looks like the game needs a reasonably speedy quad-core CPU and plenty of RAM, but relatively low-end graphics cards with just 1GB of memory are supported. Take a look:
Ubisoft has also posted a video showing the PC version's eye candy (which was implemented with the help of Nvidia's GameWorks tools). Among other things, players can look forward to HBAO+ ambient occlusion, PCSS soft shadows, TXAA antialiasing, and Nvidia's Godrays and HairWorks effects. 4K support is on the menu, as well.
Purdy. The hair effect looks a little overdone on the yaks, but it's pretty impressive on the tiger.
Far Cry 4 is scheduled for a November 18 launch on the PC and both current- and last-gen Sony and Microsoft consoles. If I had to guess, I'd say the PS3 and Xbox 360 support probably has something to do with the PC version's relatively tame minimum requirements on the graphics front.
