Ubisoft has revised the official PC specifications for Watch Dogs: Legion, which were originally released in September. Those of you who plan to hack through post-Brexit London in the game’s 4K Ultra settings with ray-tracing enabled will definitely need to step up to NVIDIA’s new flagship GPU, the GeForce RTX 3080. Otherwise, a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is acceptable for players who simply want to play the game in 4K at its highest visual quality, sans ray tracing.

The original specifications sheet included AMD’s Radeon VII under the 4K Ultra Settings column, but that’s been replaced by the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 has also been switched out for the GeForce GTX 970 under the low (1080p) preset.
