PC Specs for Far Cry 2

Ubisoft has released the actual PC specs for Far Cry 2 and while gamers were crying foul over how over the top the “leaked” specs were – the official ones are not that different in some respects. You will still have to have a decent system to run the game, but not a “super duper” gaming system like what was previously suggested.

Minimum Requirements:

CPU: Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz, Pentium D 2.66 Ghz, AMD Athlon 64 3500+ or better


Video card: NVidia 6800 or ATI X1650 or better; Shader Model 3 required; 256 Mb of graphic memory

Media reader: DVD-ROM

Hard drive space: ~12 Gig of HD space. (TBD)


CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Family, AMD 64 X2 5200+, AMD Phenom or better


Video card: NVidia 8600 GTS or better, ATI X1900 or better; 512 Mb of graphic memory

Sound: 5.1 sound card recommended

SUPPORTED VIDEO CARDS: NVidia 6800, NVidia 7000 series, 8000 series, 9000 series, 200 series. 8800M and 8700M supported for laptops.
ATI X1650 – 1950 series, HD2000 series, HD3000 series, HD4000 series.

Now remember, these are just the recommended specs. The game will still run on your system if you have only the minimum specs instead of the ones suggested. It probably will not look as great, but you will still be able to play it – and in the long run that is what matters most.

Far Cry 2 is the sequel to Ubisoft’s legendary shooter featuring the Dunia Engine which was specifically built for the title. Amongst the new features in the engine are more realistic destructible environments, real-time night-and-day cycle, and a dynamic music system. In this sequel players are placed in war-torn Africa where the mission is to kill the mysterious character, “The Jackal.”

The game is expected to hit retail shelves on December 15 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
