Far Cry 5 is quickly turning into one of 2018's hottest upcoming releases. And there's good news for PC gamers eager to find out if their systems can handle the game at its highest resolution. Ubisoft has released the game's system requirements, including the ideal gaming build needed to run the game at 4K 30 FPS and 4K 60 FPS.

The full system specifications, which were posted on the official Ubisoft blog earlier today, include minimum and recommended hardware in order to run the game at various resolutions and settings. Ubisoft promises to include both a graphics benchmark test and a video memory usage meter to help players optimize their graphics settings for the game.
