Watch Far Cry 5 Running At Ultra Settings On PC

Here's Far Cry 5 in all its glory.

Far Cry 5's release is upon us, and like its most recent predecessor, it's available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While the game features PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements, as always the top-tier visual experience will be had on PC--though you'll need some high-end hardware to make that happen.

In the video above, you can see Far Cry 5 running at Ultra settings on PC, which is as high as you crank things up. (We've also got a 4K version available.) You'll get to see a wide range of gameplay, as we deal with an outpost, do some driving, and then take part in a story mission where you have to defend a prison.

Now Playing: Far Cry 5 Max Settings PC Gameplay

Far Cry 5 supports a broad range of hardware on PC; Ubisoft provides a set of minimum requirements that will let you run the game at 720p on Low presets with an i5-2400 or FX-6300 and a GTX 670 or R9 270. However, for a 4K 60 FPS experience, you'll need far more (which is a pricey proposition, thanks to cryptocurrency): Ubisoft recommends an i7-6700K or Ryzen 7 1700X and a GTX 1080 SLI or RX Vega 56 CFX. You can see the full list of required and recommended specs below.

For more on what to expect from the new FPS, you can check out our Far Cry 5 review-in-progress. We've also got a set of tips you should know before starting and a breakdown of the game's microtransactions, which are fairly innocuous.
