See If Your PC Is Locked And Loaded For Rainbow Six: Siege


While this November may have most of us raiding tombs and surviving Wasteland for the remainder of the year, it might be easy to forget that Rainbow Six: Siege will be knocking on our doors. Luckily, Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten, and the studio has released the game’s official PC specs for those of you interested in fighting crime on a keyboard.

We know game will take up 16.54 GB on Xbox One according to the Xbox Store with the Playstation 4 version presumed to be something similar. The PC version, meanwhile, will apparently take up a sizable 30-47 GB with a doable 6-8 GB of RAM.

Siege will also launch without a story campaign and will largely be a multiplayer-only affair short of some offline training missions. As such, you’ll have to make sure that you have at least a typical 256-512kbps broadband internet connection.

Pay in mind that laptop models of all the graphics cards below may work but won’t be supported and that these chipsets are the only ones that will run Siege. Additional chipsets may be supported after release, Ubisoft says.
