Rumours are once again churning for the PC specifications, this time with Ubisoft's newest game in the Assassin's Creed franchise thanks to website 3DJuegos. According to the rumoured specs page, Ubisoft are opting for supporting only x64-bit operating systems, a trend that seems to be happening more often in the PC gaming world.
Luckily, the PC specs aren't as intensive compared to Watch Dogs rumoured "ultra" option, with Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag opting for only a minimum and recommended specifications.
For minimum specs, Ubisoft suggests a Intel Core2Quad Q8400 or AMD Athlon II X4 620 for the CPU, 2GB of RAM, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or AMD Radeon HD 4870 for the graphics card and at least 30GB of hard drive space. Note that the graphics card suggestions run in at 512MB of VRAM.
Those wanting the best graphical fidelity will be looking at the recommended specs. On the board is recommendations for a Intel Core i5 2400S or AMD Phenom II x4 940 CPU, 4GB or more of RAM and Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 or AMD Radeon HD 5850 graphics cards (ranging in the 1GB VRAM).
The leaked specifications also contain a list of supported video cards which are as follow: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or better, GT400, GT500, GT600, GT700 series or AMD Radeon HD4870 or better, HD5000, HD6000, HD7000 series. As always laptop graphics cards may work but are not officially supported.
Alongside the specifications leak is confirmation that PC customers who nab the Digital Deluxe Edition will also be offered up the Aveline missions, previously only known as PlayStation exclusive content.
