Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag PC Specs Revealed

Ubisoft has revealed the minimum and recommended specs for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

The previous entry of the series, Assassin’s Creed III, looked really good on PC so we can expect Black Flag to looks just as good, if not even better. The game, however, didn’t really run smoothly so let’s hope that Ubisoft optimized Black Flag for its PC release.

Here are the minimum and recommended configuration for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
