With the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey less than a month away, Ubisoft has announced the system requirements for PC gamers on three different resolutions: 720p HD, 1080p full-HD, and 4K Ultra HD. While a seven-year-old 2nd-gen Intel processor and Nvidia’s six-year-old GTX 660 is the bare minimum, it climbs rather quickly to last year’s 7th-gen Intel chip and the two-year-old GTX 1080 8GB if you want to play Odyssey on 4K.
