Not too terribly demanding if you only want to play at 1080p, but obviously the ray tracing specs are no laughing matter. While you won’t need a GeForce RTX 30-series graphics card to run Watch Dogs: Legion, even on the highest settings, NVIDIA is bundling the cards with a free copy of the game and a year’s subscription to GeForce Now.

Watch Dogs: Legion hacks onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 29 and the Xbox Series X/S on November 10. A PS5 version is also launching this year.
