In comparison to the previous title in the franchise, Far Cry 4, the resources required to run Primal are rather similar. Interestingly enough, Primal actually weighs in at about 10GB less than its predecessor, but that could easily be attributed to compression or video content. In any case, if you had trouble running Far Cry 4, the new instalment may require an upgrade, but otherwise, the similar specifications suggest smooth sailing for PC gamers. Ubisoft mishaps notwithstanding, of course.

Far Cry Primal is set to land on consoles a week prior to the PC release. It will be available on Xbox One and PS4 on February 23, and on PC on March 1.
