Far Cry 5 is still months away but Ubisoft is giving the PC community a heads up on what will be required to play the game, including minimum settings to 4K resolution.

Ubisoft stated on their site Kirill Bragin, PC version producer on Far Cry 5 says:

“PC has always been a key element of Far Cry’s DNA, and this couldn’t be truer with Far Cry 5. In order to help ensure PC players have the best experience possible, the Benchmark feature and video memory usage meter will help you analyze your system and calibrate the myriad visual options, including variant aspect ratio support, FOV adjustment, optional FPS locking, and resolution scaling. But players won’t need to dive into the calibration menus if they don’t feel like it, says Bragin, because “the game will auto-detect the user’s hardware and will set the matching quality preset and resolution. Furthermore, Far Cry 5 will support multi-GPU functionality, allowing players to significantly improve performance.
