The last time we heard about Assassin's Creed: Unity was just a couple of weeks ago, when we reported that the game will be running at 900p and 30FPS on both the Xbox One and PS4 so that it will "avoid all the debates" about resolutions between the consoles.
Well, the PC requirements have been released by Ubisoft, with Assassin's Creed: Unity requiring 6GB of RAM, a 64-bit version of Windows 7/8 or 8.1, and 50GB of HDD space. You'll need, at a minimum, Intel's Core i5-2500K, or AMD's FX-8350 or Phenom II x4 940. Ubisoft recommends an Intel Core i7-3770, or AMD FX-8350 or better. When it comes to RAM, 6GB is required, while 8GB is recommended.
On the GPU side of things, Ubisoft requires you to have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970, while a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290X is recommend. Holy hell: a GeForce GTX 680 or Radeon HD 7970 is required to even get the game up and running? That's actually quite shocking.
