The Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag system requirements do not include Windows XP; so sorry XP users, your computer cannot run this game. One thing that surprises me with the minimum system requirements is that it only requires 2 GB of RAM to work. I thought the game would require more RAM due to its graphics.


The Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag release date was on October 29th, 2013. This is the last Assassin’s Creed game that can be played on 32-bit Windows operating systems. The newer 2014 Assassin’s Creed V Unity requires 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 8 PCs to run. So if you have a fairly fast computer, but are running a 32-bit version of Windows you can only run Assassin’s Creed 1-4.

If you have any QUESTIONS or COMMENTS about Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag system requirements or you are just confused and don’t know if you can run it, feel free to ASK FOR HELP BELOW!

      Hello Hisham, no bother.

      After looking at your specs, it will run Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. But you must run the game at the lowest graphic settings or else Black Flag will have horrible lag.

      The AMD Radeon R5 on laptops shares RAM with your laptop memory. So it is sharing some of that 8 GB of system RAM.

    Hey Shadow,

    Sorry to say that according to Ubisoft, the makers of Black Flag, that laptop will not be able to run Black Flag. The reason is that the processor is too slow. During installation it will give you an error message that translates into saying that the CPU is not fast enough. If it installs you will get a lot of lag while playing it, maybe even freezing your laptop.
