Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ release is drawing near, and developer Ubisoft has revealed the minimum PC specs and system requirements you’ll need to play. The company says that optimizing the game for PC play has been very important, as has making the game accessible to players on a wide variety of systems.

“The PC version was developed in parallel with all the other versions by the main team in Montreal, in collaboration with our PC-dedicated team in Ubisoft Kiev,” said Jose Araiza, the coordinating producer on Assassin’s Creed Origins. “This approach was adopted while the game features were being designed, making PC and mouse-and-keyboard controls a full part of the equation from the get-go.”

Araiza said the minimum system requirements will be the same as Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which released two years ago. “This means that the range of supported machines is wider than ever,” he said.

Assassin’s Creed Origins comes out on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 27. It’s the latest instalment in a series that has been around for a decade, and if you need help catching up on the story, check out our look back at every Assassin’s Creed game.
