Check out the PC specs for Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal is set for release quite soon, which means its time to find out if your PC can handle this prehistoric adventure

Ubisoft is shaking things up once more in the Far Cry Universe with Far Cry Primal - which takes you back to prehistory to play as a caveman trying to survive in an utterly alien world. There are no cars, no guns and a lot of animals who will be quite happy to tear you to shreds.

In short, it looks brilliant and it's great to see a major publisher doing something different with one of their bigger properties, even if most of the elements in play are at least somewhat familiar. It's a huge and gorgeous looking game, so naturally it will look as great as possible on consoles but if you're looking for the definitive experience in terms of graphics as always you should try it out on PC.

With that in mind, Ubisoft has released the minimum and recommended specs for the game on PC. At the minimum level at least they're pretty reasonable.
