For Honor PC Specs Announced

Ubisoft has revealed the official For Honor minimum and recommended PC specifications.  Is your gaming PC up to the challenge?

For Honor is Ubisoft’s newest franchise, featuring combat between Vikings, Knights and Samurai within a medieval fantasy setting.  If that sentence alone isn’t worth the price of admission then the world is truly broken.

The good news is, the For Honor closed beta is right around the corner, being held between January 26th and January 29th, and the full release is slated for February 2017.

Ever since the original announcement at E3 2015, PC gamers have been holding their collective breath.  Visually speaking, For Honor is stunning and it had been expected to give less powerful PCs the cold shoulder.

The good news is, For Honor’s minimum and recommended specs are fairly accessible, giving low-to-mid-range rigs the chance to experience what could be one of the biggest games in 2017.
