Ubisoft has revealed the system requirements for the PC version of open-world adventure Watch Dogs. You'll need a strong system to run the game on even the minimum settings.

Watch Dogs only supports 64-bit operating systems. Furthermore, you'll need 6GB of RAM and 25GB of space. A computer built within the past couple years might struggle with the game. Here are the recommended and minimum specs, courtesy of the game's Steam listing:

Minimum
  • OS: Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8 (Please note that we only support 64 bit OSs.)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 @ 2.66Ghz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0Ghz
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 1 GB Video RAM - Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5770
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card with Latest Drivers
  • Additional Notes: Broadband connection and service required for multiplayer mode. Supported Video Cards at Time of Release: nVidia GeForce GTX460 or better, GT500, GT600, GT700 series; AMD Radeon HD5850 or better, HD6000, HD7000, R7 and R9 series Intel® Iris™ Pro HD 5200
Recommended:
  • OS: Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8 (Please note that we only support 64 bit OSs.)
  • Processor: Eight core - Intel Core i7-3770 @3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 X8 @ 4 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 2 GB Video RAM - Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti or AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 25 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card with Latest Drivers
  • Additional Notes: Broadband connection and service required for multiplayer mode. Supported Video Cards at Time of Release: nVidia GeForce GTX460 or better, GT500, GT600, GT700 series; AMD Radeon HD5850 or better, HD6000, HD7000, R7 and R9 series Intel® Iris™ Pro HD 5200
There are some questions surround the quality of the console versions. Some feel that the game was downgraded to be more stable on those platforms. However, Ubisoft said that the PC version will be better than the E3 2012 demo. As these system requirements indicate, though, playing the definitive version will require powerful hardware. The "Ultra" settings for the game should take even higher specs than the recommended settings.

Watch Dogs will launch on May 27th on the Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game underwent numerous delays so that the development team would have more time to "polish" it; presumably the difficulties of cross-gen development played a role as well.
