Watch Dogs PC Specs Go From Minimum To Ultra

While many people see the current generation version of Watch Dogs as damn ugly, this is something PC users won’t have to worry about if they keep their rig up to date. Ubisoft posted the PC specs for their open-world hack’n’shoot in Uplay today, before pulling the page. It was too late however, as NeoGAF had already noted everything from minimum spec, to the futuristic sounding “ultra” specification.
