Gear up for The Crew with minimum, optimal PC specs
You've got one month to pop your PC's hood and tune its innards for The Crew, Ubisoft's social, open world racer. Optimizing your machine would probably be easier if you knew what sort of performance you're aiming for though, which is where Ubisoft's recent post to the Ubiblog comes in.

While a bulletpoint-style breakdown of minimum, recommended and best-case-scenario specs is waiting for you after the break, The Crew will only support 64-bit operating systems and will need a sound card that's up to date with DirectX drivers. Support for Xbox 360 (or similar controllers) will be offered. While laptops that resemble or exceed the recommended specs may be able to run The Crew, Ubisoft notes that such models "have not been exhaustively tested."

You don't have to own a competent PC to play The Crew, of course – drivers sporting a PS4 or Xbox One can rev their respective triggers in anticipation for next week's beta.
