The Crew 2 races (and flies, and sails) onto the scene next month, and Ubisoft has revealed what kind of rig you’ll need to play the game. The requirements are surprisingly modest, with even the recommended 1080p 60 fps at high settings configuration only requiring an Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, and GeForce GTX 970 graphics card. Not a terribly high barrier to entry for a triple-A game from a major publisher.

You can check out the full minimum and recommended specs, below:

Of course, The Crew 2 also offers 4K, Ultra-wide 21:9 displays, and a variety of advanced graphics options for those with beefier rigs. Check out the advanced video settings available:

  • FPS limit, up to 60 FPS
  • V-Sync on/off
  • Geometry: Set the view distance details.
  • Shadows: Set the resolution and quality of all shadows in the game.
  • Textures: Set the quality of in-game textures. Game restart is required to apply changes.
  • Environment Mapping: Set the quality and the resolution of real-time reflection and indirect lighting.
  • Depth of field: Set the depth of field quality.
  • Motion Blur: Set the strength and quality of in-game Motion Blur while moving. A disable feature also is available.

  • Volumetric FX: Set quality of clouds and fog.
  • Anti-aliasing: Set the quality of edge sharpening and overall graphic fidelity.
  • Ambient occlusion: Set details of shadows based on two or more intersecting objects.
  • Screen space reflection: SSR allows even more improvements to Environment Mapping by using some parts of the rendered image if possible. The player can choose SSR quality or disable it for low-end machines.
  • Weather: Set the quality of weather effects in the game.
  • Terrain: Terrain quality settings can allow more details in medium and far view.
  • 3-Monitor FOV scale factor: If the player uses a 3-monitor configuration, this value allows them to adjust the focus level of the monitor in the middle and corrects potential FOV deformation because of the unusual aspect ratio.

The Crew 2 will be kicking off a month-long beta on May 31. For those who haven’t been keeping up, here’s what the game is all about…
