Call of Duty: Ghosts PC system requirements continue industry crusade against 32 bit OS

It’s got to be something to do with the new consoles, hasn’t it? First Watch Dogs’ provisional specs, then Assassin’s Creed IV’s system requirements, now Call of Duty: Ghosts demands a 64 bit Windows 7 or 8 on its rider before it’ll even entertain the thought of starting its show.

The minimum specs come courtesy of Nvidia, who really ought to know. For better results, they recommend then GeForce GTX 780 - but then they would, wouldn’t they, cheeky so-and-sos.

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
  • RAM: 6 GB RAM
  • HDD: 50 GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX: 11
  • Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.

You’ll have noted the whopping 50 GB of hard drive space you’ll need clear to install the thing. Assassin’s Creed IV is only 30, and contains all seven seas. What’s Ghosts got under its bonnet to justify all that room?

Ta, VG247.

The GTX 780 is for 4K resolution. Nvidia has been doing a big 4K push and Ghosts is part of it.

I think it's 50GB due to the texture size. I remember an interview where IW said the PC has its own assets and the textures are incredibly high res. But we'll see!

I'm happy to see Win 32 bit finally phased out. Took long enough.
