As a minimum, the game will require a dual core CPU, 4GB of RAM and a DirectX 9 compatible 512MB graphics card. Example graphics cards that meet the minimum requirements include the NVidia GTX8800, Intel Core2 Duo E6700, AMD Radeon HD2900 and AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+.
Ubisoft recommends a PC with a quad core CPU, 4GB of RAM and a DirectX 11 compatible 1024MB graphics card. Some graphics cards that Ubisoft suggests include the NVidia GTX480, Intel Core i3-530, AMD Radeon HD5770 and AMD Phenom II X2 565.
For the best Far Cry 3 performance though, Ubisoft suggests the recommended specs with an upgrade to 8GB of RAM, with high performance graphics card suggestions like the NVidia GTX680, Intel Core i7-2600K, AMD Radeon HD7970 and AMD Bulldozer FX4150.
The game will also require a one-time activation through Ubisoft's UPlay service, but there will be no continuous internet connection requirement beyond the initial activation.
Announced by Ubisoft last year, Far Cry 3 returns to the tropical setting made famous by the first Far Cry.
The game will feature a four-player co-operative mode, which takes place six months prior to the events of the single-player campaign.
A limited edition Far Cry 3: Insane Edition was recently announced, including the 'Monkey Business' single-player campaign, as well as four additional single and multiplayer packs.
Far Cry 3 will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 30.
