Call of Duty’s latest installment’s minimum system requirements have been revealed. And oh my, they’re going to cause quite a stir among those who were hoping to run this ogre of a game on their budget gaming systems.
Your first glance at these minimum system specs will leave your mind in one of two states. The first state includes a sinking feeling of having to spend a fortune on better hardware or probably not getting to play it anytime soon. The second state is one of excitement and anticipation for a stunning looking game (mostly felt by owners of beastly gaming rigs).
As one Reddit user rightly puts it:
This is one of the biggest-budget triple-A shooters of the year, and the year is 2016. Are we really surprised that a GTX 280 is going to splutter like a three packs a day smoker?
Before taking a good look at these hardware specs, do remember that these are the ‘minimum requirements’. The bare bones rig you’ll be needing to even play this game somewhat properly on your PC. It might be possible to make it run on something lower than this, but there’s really no point playing a game below its minimum specs.
- OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
- Processor: Intel Core i3-3225 @ 3.30GHz or equivalent
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 70 GB available space (Disk space requirement may change over time)
- Sound Card: DirectX 11 Compatible
Recommended and optimal system requirements have not been officially listed as of yet, but as and when they are, you’ll find them right here. But if you’re an avid PC gamer, this should give you a decent idea of the kind of horsepower you’re looking for to run this monster on your rig.
