With Far Cry 5's gun-toting trip to Montana now just a couple of months away, Ubisoft has announced the PC system requirements and a rough estimate of the performance you can expect from various benchmark configurations. The short version is that you're going to need a fairly beefy system if you want to run it well.  

If you're looking for a more high-end experience, Ubisoft also shared three different recommended configurations. One is to run the game at 1080p with High presets, while two others are to hit 4K with target framerates of 30 FPS and 60 FPS. In the latter case, the demands are quite high: You'll need an i7-6700K or Ryzen 7 1700X, 16 GB of RAM, and a GTX 1080 SLI or RX Vega 56 CFX.

The PC version will include a benchmarking feature to help you tune settings to your specific setup, as will a meter that measures the amount of video memory consumed by your selections. Among the options you'll find are variant aspect ratios (there's no word on ultrawide specifically), FPS locks, resolution scaling, and field-of-view settings.
