Watch Dogs: Legion Revised System Specs Call For An RTX 3080 At The High End

Watch Dogs: Legion is just a handful of weeks away, which means you’re quickly running out of time to upgrade your PC if you plan to play the open-world hacking adventure with all its bells and whistles. If you’ve been lucky enough to snag an RTX 3080, you’ll be pleased to know that Legion supports a full suite of ray-tracing options, which have now been added to the game’s specs.

The update specifications sheet details some of the options you can toggle for the best ray-traced experience based on your hardware. All three tiers of ray tracing make use of Nvidia’s DLSS (Deep-Learning Super Sampling), which can render the game at a lower resolution and use AI to upscale it with impressive results. This lets less capable cards like the RTX 2060 run Watch Dogs: Legion with a modest suite of ray tracing effects, as you can see in the full sheet below.

If you have one of the best cards on the market right now, Nvidia’s new RTX 3080, you should be able to run Watch Dogs: Legion with all its ray-traced effects at their maximum at 4K. You’ll have to settle for DLSS in performance mode with the additional high-resolution texture pack that adds in a whopping 20GB to the install size too.
