Posted: 10:45AM

Assassin's Creed III is nearly here for the console crowd, while PC gamers have to wait about an extra month. Regardless of that fact, Ubisoft has posted the minimum system requirements for Assassin's Creed III to ensure PC gamers can play when it arrives. There are not a lot of surprises in the minimum requirements, however Windows XP users will have to upgrade to one of the newer Microsoft operating systems. Hard drive space is pretty high as gamers need 17GB to install AC3, while 4GB of RAM is recommended to get you rolling. The full requirements are below:

Minimum System Requirements

Supported OS: Windows Vista (SP2) / Windows 7 (SP1) / Windows 8
Processor: 2.66 GHz Intel Core2 Duo E6700 or 3.00 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ or better recommended
RAM: 2 GB (4 GB recommended)
Video Card: 512 MB DirectX 9.0c-compliant with Shader Model 4.0 or higher (see supported list)
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c-compliant (5.1 surround sound recommended)
DVD-ROM: Dual-layer drive
Hard Drive Space: 17 GB
Peripherals Supported: Windows-compatible keyboard, mouse, optional controller (Xbox 360 Controller for Windows recommended)
Multiplayer: 256 kbps or faster broadband connection

Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:
AMD Radeon HD 3870 / 4000 / 5000 / 6000 / 7000 series or better
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT / 9 / 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 / 600 series or better

Overall the minimum requirements are fairly easy for the majority of PC gamers to meet, but some people may need to upgrade. Ubisoft does note that laptop versions of those video cards could work, but it does not guarantee it or support them. The always-on DRM has been removed from all Ubisoft titles, so the game can be played offline after a one-time Internet activation. Assassin's Creed III lands on October 30 for the consoles and November 20 for the PC.
