'Far Cry 5' (ALL) PC Specs And System Requirements Revealed

by Rainier on Jan. 22, 2018 @ 2:35 p.m. PST

As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county.

Gamers will experience the chaos, unpredictability and ferociousness of the Far Cry franchise with Far Cry 5

Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom.

Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.


From PC-specific features to the minimum and recommended requirements, the info below will help you get prepared to unleash righteous havoc on the Project at Eden’s Gate.

“PC has always been a key element of Far Cry’s DNA, and this couldn’t be truer with Far Cry 5,” says Kirill Bragin, PC Version Producer on 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.

“This is just a sneak peek at some of the features we are excited about for the PC version,” says Bragin. Check below for the minimum and recommended system requirements.

Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.

To take down the cult, players will need to utilize any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialized animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.
