Ubisoft has just revealed the official PC requirements for Watch_Dogs 2, as well as its PC graphics features. Watch_Dogs 2 will support SLI/Crossfire systems from the get-go, will feature an uncapped framerate, will support 4K resolutions, FOV and Sharpness sliders, and an Ultra Texture pack that will be available at launch.

From the looks of it, the PC version of Watch_Dogs 2 will be the definitive version, and Ubisoft is doing its best to offer a polished PC version. Watch_Dogs 2 on the PC will come with stuttering/lag framerate optimization as Ubisoft employed a fix that makes all controls much more responsive and less framerate-related.

“We’ve optimized resource creation, GPU VRAM upload and required VRAM for the game.”

Watch_Dogs 2 will also support improved Keyboard/Mouse controls, a mouse-centric User Interface, three different anti-aliasing options and multi-monitors. We should also note that the PC version of Watch_Dogs 2 has been pushed back two weeks. The game is now scheduled for a November 29th release on the PC.

As Ubisoft claimed:

“The extra time will be used for additional polish and will help ensure the game runs smoothly across a broad range of PC hardware.”
