Ahead of its release on November 19, Ubisoft has revealed the PC system requirements for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.

The console versions of Syndicate released a few weeks ago, and while console owners have to settle with a resolution of 900P, this doesn’t apply to PC gamers. For both the PS4 and Xbox One, Ubisoft has aimed for a locked framerate of 30 frames per second. Judging from a performance test by Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry, Ubisoft’s latest performs quite well on both consoles.

“Overall, it feels like Syndicate is a very positive step in the right direction. Stability isn’t perfect, but there’s no longer the sense that bugs, glitches and oddities actively intrude on the gameplay experience. Meanwhile, performance isn’t up to the rock-solid frame-rates achieved by Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, but it’s certainly good enough”

The PC version of Syndicate is in development by Ubisoft Kiev, and according the studio’s production manager Sam Kovalev, the extra time between the console versions and the PC version, is used to offer a “stable, optimized version of the game on day one.”

“We have introduced several new improvements to our production pipeline and validation process, which allowed us to focus on polishing, stabilizing and optimizing the PC version very early on in the project,” says Kovalev. “This has been one of the top priorities for the production team this year.”

Back in August, Kovalev also stated that “PC requirements are still being finalized, and said that there will be no locks on the game as far as framerate and resolution goes. The recommended system requirements will target 1080p and 30 FPS”.

Ubisoft has now officially released both the minimum and recommended specs for Syndicate
