Ubisoft has finally revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version of the upcoming Viking/Samurai/Knight hack and slash game For Honor, scheduled to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms on February 14.

First up, it’s the minimum requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
    PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent
  • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX660/GTX750ti/GTX950/GTX1050 with 2 GB VRAM or more | AMD Radeon HD6970/HD7870/R9 270/R9 370/RX460 with 2 GB VRAM or more – See supported List */**
  • SYSTEM RAM: 4GB
  • Resolution: [email protected]
  • Video Preset: Low
  • VSync: Off

I’m glad to see that the barrier for entry is surprisingly low from a technical perspective, with relatively low-end PCs able to play For Honor at a (barely) acceptable level.

Here are the recommended specs:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-2500K | AMD FX-6350 or equivalent
  • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX680/GTX760/GTX970/GTX1060 with 2 GB VRAM or more | AMD Radeon R9 280X/R9 380/RX470 with 2 GB VRAM or more
  • SYSTEM RAM: 8GB
  • Resolution: 1080p@ ~60FPS
  • Video Preset: High
  • VSync: Off

That’s still pretty reasonable for the most part. Mid-range/lower-high-range PCs should be able to play this game at 1080 at 60 fps without having to break the bank.

Here’s a list of all the NVIDIA/AMD cards supported by the game at launch:

NVIDIA

• GeForce GTX600 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX660 or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX680 or better

• GeForce GTX700 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX750ti or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX760 or better
• GeForce GTX900 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX950 or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX970 or better
• GeForce GTX10-Series: (minimum) any GeForce GTX10 card | (recommended) GeForce GTX1060 or better

AMD

• Radeon HD6000 series: (minimum) Radeon HD6970 or better | (recommended) none
• Radeon HD7000 series: (minimum) Radeon HD7870 or better | (recommended) none
• Radeon 200 series: (minimum) Radeon R9 270 or better | (recommended) Radeon R9 280X or better
• Radeon 300/Fury X series: (minimum) Radeon R9 370 or better | (recommended) Radeon R9 380 or better
• Radeon 400 series: (minimum) Radeon RX460 or better | (recommended) Radeon RX470 or better

For Honor also supports the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox One Elite and DualShock (PlayStation 4 and Pro) controllers with other controllers potentially needing third-party drivers in order to work.

If you’re wanting to try out For Honor before its release, they will be running a closed beta on all platforms between January 26 and 29th.
