Last Updated on January 20, 2015


So as with the previous generations, we are starting to see an increase in minimum PC spec requirements for certain games.

Here are the min. specs and the recommended specs for ACU:

With PC gaming’s minimum requirements getting a boost, that also mean that computer hardware is soon to gain a lot more power for a lot less $$$. 😉

  1. I love Assassin’s Creed on the Wii U, I bet the graphics on the computer are way better though. Maybe, I’ll have my brother build me a pc so I can play this one. I don’t want to miss out!

    • Hey Briona!

      Assassin’s Creed is awesome and looks amazing on a gaming PC! Have your brother take a look at the different budgets when you’re ready to join the PC gaming community! 🙂


  2. It’s just crazy how this industry keeps upping the ante. These games are great but keeping up with the tech can be a nightmare.

    I think I’ll stick with space invaders 😛
