Ubisoft’s open-world action-adventure Watch Dogs may only be out at the end of May but it’s already available for pre-purchase from Steam. One side effect of this early listing is that we can see the game’s PC requirements and determine if we need to upgrade our rigs before this highly anticipated new IP splashes down.

You’ll need to have a 64-bit operating system to run Watch Dogs and at least 6GB of RAM along with a quad-core CPU. Clearly PC players are going to be getting a product akin or superior to the new-gen version of the game because the minimum requirements would be a lot lower if the PC build was based on the PS3 and Xbox 360 version.

Here are Watch Dogs’ minimum and recommended requirements in full:

  • OS: Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8 (Please note that we only support 64 bit OSs.)
