Assassin's Creed System requirements?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by Bryn5774 (469 posts) -

I was wondering if anyone knew definitively what the system requirements will be for Assassin's Creed? I've done some searching but cant find anything.

Anyone know anything for sure?

#3 Posted by Bryn5774 (469 posts) -
I plan on getting it for the 360. My roommate, however, is opposed to the 360 for some reason, and cant afford a PS3, so he wants to get it on the PC, and i was doing him a favor by looking for specs.
#4 Posted by whgresiak (1889 posts) -
Well, put it this way, they're probably pretty high.
#5 Posted by Gamartto (1986 posts) -
I'm just guessing, but maybe the recommended specs will be something like the double of the recommended requirements of PoP: TT.

I bet it's high, Ubisoft PC ports are optimized badly

yea. the sys req.s are definitely gonna be high. i would say around Crysis, probably a bit higher, due to the expansive cities. you will defnitely need a good graphics card, and a fast processor.

Well assassin's creed looks very nice but will not be as hard as crysis who ever said that if a 360 can run it smooth surely it aint very hard if you dont have much money go out and get a new pc looks for these specs:

intel core due e6700 2.66GHz
2GB ram
Geforce 8600GTS 512mb

its only £500 where i amand thats is better then a 360 it has dx10 what 360 doesnt havemysecondcomputerissamespecanditrunseveryniceandhighover60+iplayedcrysisdemoeverythinkhighigot30fpsandcrysisismuchmuchpowerfultorun

Yeah but the AC PC version has been delayed till february, which, I don't really know why, they say it's optimization, but man, that's a very long Optimization period, so I bet that question will be answered in 08.

There are better games coming out this month anyway. Hell, most of them have already come out, seems like there's just a few FPS's left. Then it's "Holiday Season" time.

We definitely won't know for quite a while. The game doesn't come out for PC until February. Official specs are released at most a month early and even then can change.

I would't worry about the system reqirements. I don't think they're planning to pull out a much better-looking version on the PC. Today, a good gaming rig is quite affordable.

Personally, I'd lose the Core 2 Duo over an X2 5200+, which is more than enough for gaming, and rather invest in an 8800GT. This chipset sometimes beats the 8800GTS and is close to the GTX. In other words, it WILL hold up against any game for the next year with little or no compromise. 2 gigs are always welcome. Even 4, on Vista. The rest is easy.

And if the PC control system will suck, add a dual shock gamepad :)

Not quite so. Look at Splinter Cell 1 and 2. Besides, they want to really blow your mind with this game. I really wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure they're doing their best and it will come out ok in the end.

Starting here, of course:

http://www.google.com/search?as_q=system+requirements+assassins+creed&hl=en

Which leads to here, naturally:

http://www.ubi.com/US/Games/Info.aspx?pId=4474

And no such thing exists publicly, let alone any estimates of requirements - too bad.

Eww you're recommending an X2 over a Core 2 Duo? bad move, sir.

#15 Posted by TA127 (774 posts) -

Search 'Can you run it?' in Google...great site

but im not sure they have AC yet...

#16 Posted by johnmraj (1 posts) -

i hope and pray that the assassin's creed requirement should be low. i alsohope & praythat the game video-card requirement should be below 128mband ram less than 512mbfrom johnmraj

apparently you haven't read his post well... and second, the 5800+ is faster than some core 2 duos, and third, he's right to say that what really matters with either processors is a better graphic card

it's better to have a 5800+ and 2 sli 8800 gt than a quad core with a 7900gt...

Splinter Cell 1 and 2 were debatably both lead versions on PC, with the consoles getting the ports. Double Agent, GRAW and Vegas were all extremely poor ports on the PC front - and given that those games are more recent, they are more relevant.

I agree with you, though - I think ubi wants to make good with Assassin's Creed, to get back all its lost customers in time for FarCry2, but seriously, Ubisoft has been showing no PC love recently. Hopefully that's what the PC delay is for. I think things are gonna turn out great

As for specs, I'd guess something like a 7800 / 2gb ram / dual core cpu to run it nicely. Probably an 8 series if you want it running on maxed out settings.

#20 Posted by ACartic (1 posts) -

Would this be enough:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.61 GHz

2064 mb RAM

256 MB nVidiaTM GeForce 8600GT

I hope so :D

#21 Posted by gs_gear (3237 posts) -
I don't think they'll be too high. Isn't it using UE 2.5?
#22 Posted by eternally666777 (6 posts) -

i think i can run it with mine... hopefully with high setting:

intelcore 2 DUO processor: T7600 2.33MHZ 4mb cache 667mhz fsb

Dual 512mb nvidia geforce go 7950 GTX with SLI

4gb ram

mine is a notebook btw, i hope i can run it...

#24 Posted by knut-am (1438 posts) -

since you even had to ask, i think you should get it for the 360. i think that would be better in your situation.

#25 Posted by acib177 (19 posts) -
maybe at least 1gb ram needed for this game, dont think 512 should be enough.. damn, cant wait for assassin's creed..
#26 Posted by hassankhawar_80 (4 posts) -

What about mine?

1.2GHz

GeforceFX 5700

576 RAM

Windows 2K

You'll run it max-out or almost. (first quote) if this was serious: no way (second quote)

#31 Posted by _7h0m_ (873 posts) -
I played the beta version. I can't tell anything about it, but the game was running soothly they just need to tweak the controls a bit. There was less glitching on it than the x360/ps3 versions. Just wait a bit.

hahahhahahahaha OMG I almost started crying of laughter

#33 Posted by Darkdesires (414 posts) -

I bet the minimum specs will be around this:

Pentium 4 2.8Ghz, 1 GB Ram, Nvidia 6800.

and recommended are something like this:

Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB Ram, Nvidia 8800 GT.

The 8800 GT will surely run it no problems and all maxed up.

#34 Posted by firo999 (167 posts) -
i am going to guess that it would need a single very fast prossesor and a dual core for recommended settings 1gb ram for minimum and 1.5gb ram recommended and a vga with at least 256 vram (x1300 and up for ati) and (nvidia 6800 and up) actually maybe less since crysis has atleast that's what i think much better graphics than assassin's creed and i run it on medium and some settings on high and really fast
#35 Posted by Sachiboi (7 posts) -

Um hope i can play it at bout medium settings without any performance glitches if soo pls reply

2GB DDR2 667mhz frequency

3.4ghz Pentium D Dual Core

NVidia 7600GS (Asus)

250GB 7200rpm SATA hard drive

Windows Vista and Windows XP on dual boot

if so pls reply to this address sachithawijeyeratne@hotmail.com

thank you

The nice man in EB says February. Hopefully I will have my new computer well before then to play the game.

lol, you should have seen the look this other guy gave me when I asked him when he thought EP3 was coming out. He was like "Are you kidding me! It hasn't even been announced yet! 1-2 years!" What a jerk. I was only asking.

#39 Posted by Nbveh (7 posts) -

Does it requires the Shader Model 3.0? Someone knows?

I know, there is HDR and so... But maybe it is can be turned off.

Nbveh

The official system requirements have not been put out yet since the game is still being optimised for PC..only then will we know whether we can play it. Lets hope the ol' 5700FX is still compatible aye?

#41 Posted by gotcha455 (2611 posts) -
Loser, stop listening to the nice man in EB. He knows as much as their website does, and that's not saying much.
#42 Posted by IkickButaTwAreZ (3 posts) -

Hey..

I know I'm a total n00b at this site but I'm not a n00b in general so i hope you guys will help me out.

Is this enough to run it at high settings?

Windows Vista Ultimate.

AMD X2 5600+

XFX Nvidia 8600GT

3GB of RAM

And a monitor with a resolution of 1680 x 1050.

Thanks :)

#43 Posted by biggest_loser (24057 posts) -
No one knows what the official requirements for the game are yet. It is being optimised.

Well i know that.

But i was looking for a guess not an official answer. Looking at the game and my computer, is there a chance?

#45 Posted by biggest_loser (24057 posts) -

The RAM looks good, I'm just a little worried about the video card...

But who knows right? If a Xbox360 can run it maybe it won't be as high as some people are thinking...you might be out of the woods!!

Should i play it safe and spring for a Nvidia 8800GT?

#47 Posted by biggest_loser (24057 posts) -

That would be a much better card especially for the future! Make sure its a 512mb model.

They're not that expensive either $300-400 (au). Depends how long you've had your old card for also and again what the requirements for the game actually are.

#48 Posted by Malgaras (5 posts) -
It would be a better GFX card but i would save your money until you see the specs for it released, you won't need to upgrade your GFX card for a while with the card you have, as long as your not a GFX junky and aim for the best GFX everytime, GFX are nice but it costs money and you might as well save it for when you really need an upgrade, the nvidia 9000 series is coming out soon and those cards are gonna be awsome but gonna cost alot of money and when they do come out all other GFX cards will go down in price, I have a nvidia 7950 GT 256memory, 2gb of ram, intel core 2 duo 6300, and I run crysis with a decent framerate at 40-55 frames, this game is gonna be good but not around crysis, you should be good man, just don't go with the highest res and you should be fine :)
#49 Posted by OtakuRay (658 posts) -
It will be very high, Hope to be reasonable
