Ubisoft reveals the minimum and recommended PC spec requirements for Ghost Recon: Wildlands along with a list of supported graphics cards and controllers.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated games of the year. That said, the game’s closed beta a few weeks ago struggled to win favor thanks to numerous bugs, glitches, and gamer complaints.

Fortunately, Ubisoft will have another chance to prove Ghost Recon: Wildlands is worth a buy with its upcoming open beta. It’ll also be an opportunity for PC gamers to test their rigs against the spec requirements Ubisoft has now released for the game.

As with most PC games, Ubisoft has revealed the minimum and recommended specs for Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The first is the minimum requirements, which set the bar at a Core i5-2400S (2.5 GHz) or FX-4320 (4 GHz), 6 GB of RAM, and a GTX 660 or HD 7870. It’s important to note that Ubisoft is clear that these specs will only allow gamers to enjoy Ghost Recon: Wildlands at 720p and Low presets. Obviously, this isn’t the ideal way to play a game with a vast, beautiful landscape, but it at least gives gamers a chance with low-end PCs to experience the game.

In order to play Ghost Recon: Wildlands at 1080p and High presets, Ubisoft has provided these recommended specs: i7-3770 or FX-8350, 8 GB of RAM, and a GTX 970 or R9 290X. Those with even better setups will be able to play the game at higher resolutions. The full list of specs, along with supported controllers and video cards can be found below.

Ubisoft has been touting the impressive landscape in Ghost Recon: Wildlands since the game was announced in 2015. With so much to explore and so many ways to take on the Santa Blanca cartel, there’s good reason for PC gamers to outfit their PCs with appropriate specs if they aren’t already.
