105 Comments

Ahead of the upcoming multiplayer beta, Ubisoft has announced the minimum and recommended specs for the PC version of For Honor.

On the minimum side, the requirements aren't especially high. They call only for a Core i3-550 or Phenom II X4 955, 4 GB of RAM, and a GTX 660 or HD 6970. However, the target resolution and frame rate for all of this--30 FPS and 720p with Low settings--isn't how many PC gamers will be hoping to play it.

For a 1080p and "about" 60 FPS experience with High settings, Ubisoft recommends an i5-2500K or FX-6350 to go along with 8 GB of RAM and at least a GTX 680 or R9 280X. It also notes this is with v-sync disabled, so expect to need higher-end hardware to leverage advanced visual settings. Full spec lists follow below.

Ubisoft also provided a list of video cards that are supported at launch, which you can find at the bottom of this post. There's also a list of fully and partially supported controllers. The latter includes options that are less commonplace, to say the least, such as the Logitech Chillstream and the Ouya controller.

For Honor's multiplayer beta runs for four days on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 beginning on January 26. Check out our previous coverage for an overview of what the beta consists of. The full game launches soon after the beta concludes, on February 14.
