    Watch Dogs: Legion PC Specs

    What ho!

    Ahead of launch on we've released the PC Specs to help you join the resistance.

    We've included options for 1080p low, 1080p high, 1440p high, and 4K ultra settings. And if you want to see every bit of eye-popping detail from the game’s depiction of neon-clad, near-future London, there are also two separate categories specifically supporting NVIDIA’s line of RTX graphics cards.

    1080p / Low Settings

    • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 / AMD Ryzen 5 1400
    • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 290X

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 / AMD Ryzen 5 1600

    4K / Ultra Settings

    • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon VII
    • VRAM: 11 GB
    • RAM: 16 GB (Dual-channel setup)
    • Storage Space: 45 GB (+ 20 GB HD Textures Pack)
    • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

    Ray Tracing On - 1080p / High Settings

    • CPU: Intel Core i5-9600K / AMD Ryzen 5 3600
    • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070
    • VRAM: 8 GB
    • RAM: 16 GB (Dual-channel setup)
    • Storage Space: 45 GB
    • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

    Ray Tracing On - 4K / Ultra Settings

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K / AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

    • Storage Space: 45GB (+20 GB HD Textures Pack)
    • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)





    A new GeForce RTX 30 Series Bundle has been announced which comes bundled with a digital copy of Watch Dogs: Legion for PC, if you're interested. Additionally, the game will support ray-traced reflections and NVIDIA’s DLSS Ultra Performance mode, built to accelerate 8K gaming.



    Cheers!

    Thanks for the specs

    Umm small request.. can you add or update them to have 30 Series inc?

    3090 vram 24, 3080 vram 10, 3070 (replaces 2080 ti) vram 8.
    Are you really doing a game bundle when only 1 of the new cards can handle 4k with hd pack?

    Looking at the specs, I notice that the max VRAM for each type of settings is the max for the chosen graphics card.
    Does that mean that the numbers are there only to appease the graphics cards? Or will the game ACTUALLY require such volumes?

    I'm also asking this because the RTX 30 series comes with the Watch Dogs bundle, and the 3070 has only 8 GB VRAM, but is reportedly twice better than the 2080ti, therefore I can only assume that the game will need 6-7 GB of VRAM to look nice and pretty.

    Please comment on this!

    I've already got an I-core 9, top ram, top Vram, 8 terrabytes of storage and everything else high end on my PC, except for my graphics card. I'll just play on high setting until my computer tech guru orders an Nvidia RTX 3080 when they are in stock from his supplier, which might not be until January or February of 2021. I'm ok with playing oh high settings until then, because any other graphic card update from what I have, is just not worth it. Patience while waiting for the best Nvidia card on the market is a good plan.

    By the way, I have already heard horror stories and read negative articles about the 8k Nvidia 3090, as it was tested and actually reduced the framerates per second to bellow 60 on some games. I'll pass on that technology for now. Just a warning for everyone. Take it with a grain of salt if you like. Happy gaming all!

    Honest question, is this game truly optimized for the PC unlike Watch Dogs 1 and 2 which weren’t. Or will this be a situation that with my Ryzen 9 3900X, RTX 2080 Super, 32GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM and name drive, the game wouldn’t even be able to hit 60fps at 1080p.


    More than system requirements, as we have seen those in the previous games, we need to see how well optimized this game truly is on PC.

    I'm a little confused - the table on this post says that 4K/Ultra works on a Radeon VII (which I have), but it's not listed on the diagram on the store page - have the requirements changed such that my card isn't enough for 4K/Ultra now? If so, what level of detail should I expecting from my card?
