PC gamers looking to play Watch Dogs: Legion will want to know if their PC is capable of running the game, and thanks to a recent infographic shared by Ubisoft we now know what to expect. From the budget user to the enthusiast, Watch Dogs: Legion will run for you so long as your hardware is no more than a few years old.

Watch Dogs: Legion on PC can run with a GTX 960, but will require an RTX 3080 for the highest level of performance.

The infographic above was released before Nvidia’s RTX 3080 hit the market, but the principle remains the same for those of you looking to run the game at 4K Ultra with Ray-Tracing enabled: you’re going to want a beefy GPU and CPU. That said, on the low end a GTX 960/ Radeon R9 290X will get you up and running at the Low preset at 1080p, but you’ll need at least a four core CPU to keep things running smoothly regardless of settings. Here’s the full breakdown via text below:
