Assassin's Creed: Unity's PC system requirements revealed

Paris is for (PC) lovers.

Ubisoft has revealed both the minimum and recommended system requirements to run the PC version of Assassin's Creed: Unity.

A couple of weeks back Ubisoft noted that the game's resolution and framerate hadn't yet been locked down with only six weeks to go before its 14th November launch. Previously, Ubisoft said that all versions would run at 900p 30fps, but perhaps it will squeeze more out of its code for players with cutting edge kits? Only time will tell.

Without further ado, here are Assassin's Creed: Unity's PC specs (via the Ubisoft blog):
