Watch Dogs Legion gets updated PC system requirements

Back in September, Ubisoft announced the PC system requirements for Watch Dogs: Legion on PC. Now that a new generation of RTX graphics cards have hit the market, those system requirements have been expanded to include hardware for ray-tracing effects. 

As a reminder, here are the base specs for those just looking to play the game without turning on ray-tracing:

1080p / Low Settings

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 / AMD Ryzen 5 1400
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 290X
  • VRAM: 4 GB
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage Space: 45 GB
  • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

1080p / High Settings

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 / AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480
  • VRAM: 6 GB
  • RAM: 8 GB (Dual-channel setup)
  • Storage Space: 45 GB
  • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

1440p / High Settings

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K / AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060S or AMD Radeon RX 5700
  • VRAM: 8GB
  • RAM: 16 GB (Dual-channel setup)
  • Storage Space: 45 GB
  • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

4K / Ultra Settings

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K / AMD Ryzen 7 3700
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon VII
  • VRAM: 11 GB
  • RAM: 16 GB (Dual-channel setup)
  • Storage Space: 45 GB (+ 20 GB HD Textures Pack)
  • Operating System: Windows 10 (x64)

Now for those looking to use ray-tracing, there are a different set of system requirements to take into account. For 1080p, ray-tracing at medium and DLSS on, you’ll want to be using at least an RTX 2060. Meanwhile, if you are playing at 1440p, with ray-tracing on high and DLSS on, you’ll want at least an RTX 3070.

As you would expect, for 4K and ultra ray-tracing quality (with DLSS on) you are recommended an RTX 3080. Previously, the recommended ray-tracing 4K requirements called for an RTX 2080Ti, but this was prior to the announcement of the new RTX 30 series. Judging by the new list, RTX 2080Ti owners will want to take follow the RTX 3070 recommended settings.

KitGuru Says: Watch Dogs Legion is coming out very soon. Are many of you planning on picking this one up later this month?
