For Honor PC Specs announced

Just before the release of Ubisoft’s For Honor Closed Beta on January 26th, Ubisoft has released the Minimum and Recommended PC Specs for their upcoming Knight/Samurai/Viking slasher.

In general, the specs don’t necessarily call for a beast of a computer. With the minimum settings calling for a Core i3-550 or Phenom II X4 955, 4 GB of RAM, and a GTX 660 or HD 6970. Only problem, the minimum requirements will only allow the game to run at 30 FPS and 720p at low settings.

To get a 1080p and “about” 60FPS experience on PC, 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.

The For Honor Beta will run for 4 days starting on January 26th 2017, you can sign up by going to the For Honor Website. Check out the full specs supported controllers (which oddly includes the Ouya controller for some reason.) Also check out our Alpha Let’s Play at our Youtube channel.
