Assassin’s Creed Unity is the next grand entry in the annual series from Ubisoft, this time not being held back by the last-gen consoles as an exclusive to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. As a result, the requirements to play the game on PC will be a good bit higher than past entries in the series. Yesterday, the distributor for Ubisoft Korea leaked the specs, but now Ubisoft has confirmed them.
