The PC version of Ubisoft's upcoming open-world action game Watch Dogs will look "stunning," so long as you're playing at high settings, creative director Jonathan Morin has said on Twitter.

"PC on very high setting is REALLY stunning if you ask me," Morin said, responding to a fan who asked him to compare the PC version with the console versions.

Morin also said the PC version of Watch Dogs will feature "very high" density, meaning the game will be able to handle lots of on-screen characters, vehicles, and physics effects at once.

But can your PC rig run Watch Dogs? Morin revealed the official minimum system requirements for Watch Dogs and they are available below. Unfortunately, the official recommended system requirements have not been announced.

In October, the game's "ultra" specifications leaked, recommending over 8GB of system RAM alongside a Nvidia GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7970 graphics card and an Intel Core i7-3930K or AMD FX-9370 processor. The leak also suggested that you'll need a 64-bit system to run Watch Dogs, though none of this is confirmed.

Official Watch Dogs Minimum PC System Requirements:

  • Processor: IntelCore 2 Quad Q8400 2.66Ghz or AMDPhenom II X4 940 3.0Ghz
  • Memory: 6GB RAM
  • Video card: 1024 VRAM DirectX 11 Shader 5.0
  • Sound Card: DirectX9
  • Hard drive: 25 GB

Watch Dogs launches May 27 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Wii U version will come sometime later.
