The official community account for Uplay on PC has just released an updated system specs for Watch Dogs: Legion, and it shows a lot of possible optimization scenarios for the PC version.

The release of the upcoming open-world action-adventure game from Ubisoft Toronto, Watch Dogs: Legion, is just around the corner. The next installment in Watch Dogs series is releasing later this month, and PC gamers can take a look at the updated system requirements for the game, and prepare their rigs accordingly.

The detailed PC specs sheet is showcasing a wide range of scenarios for optimization, and as you can see, you're gonna need a powerful rig to run the game on the highest settings with RTX on.

To run the game at Ultra settings @4K with DLSS and Ray-Tracing enabled, you're gonna need a beefy PC, with Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU, and the latest Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card. 

For optimal experience 16Gb of RAM in a Dual-channel setup is required, in any case. The PC specs sheet asks for 8Gb of RAM for the lowest settings, but we think that 8 gigs of RAM would just not be enough for any upcoming triple-A game.

If these specs are to be trusted, the game will not demand that powerful beast to run on 1440p resolution at High settings, as you'll need a mid-range PC, with Ryzen 3600 and RTX 2060 Super. 

We do not know what's the frame-rate target for these specs, but we'd bet our money at 60fps.

Here are the full Watch Dogs: Legion PC specs sheet:
