See if your PC can take a stab at running Assassin’s Creed 3

See if your PC can take a stab at running Assassin’s Creed 3

After issuing the system requirements for Far Cry 3 yesterday, has followed up with some specs for Assassin’s Creed 3. They’re not too taxing (good news for anyone taking part in the Boston Tea Party riots), but a lack of Windows XP support is something of note.

Here’s what your box will need to be capable of. If it exceeds these requirements, that’s obviously a bonus:

Minimum System Requirements

Supported OS: Windows Vista (SP2) / Windows 7 (SP1) / Windows 8
Processor: 2.66 GHz Intel Core2 Duo E6700 or 3.00 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ or better recommended
RAM: 2 GB (4 GB recommended)
Video Card: 512 MB DirectX 9.0c-compliant with Shader Model 4.0 or higher (see supported list)*
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c-compliant (5.1 surround sound recommended)
DVD-ROM: Dual-layer drive
Hard Drive Space: 17 GB
Peripherals Supported: Windows-compatible keyboard, mouse, optional controller (Xbox 360 Controller for Windows recommended)
Multiplayer: 256 kbps or faster broadband connection

Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:
AMD Radeon HD 3870 / 4000 / 5000 / 6000 / 7000 series or better
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT / 9 / 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 / 600 series or better

“Laptop versions of these cards may work, but are not supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game,” adds Ubisoft.

Assassin’s Creed 3 currently looks like it’ll reach the PC around 20-23 November, depending on your region.
