Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War PC system requirements revealed for beta

The Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War system requirements are here just in time for the start of the beta on PC. They’re going to look pretty familiar compared against the Modern Warfare system requirements, so if you’ve already been playing the previous game, you should be fine here. Otherwise, read on for all the details.

You might take note of the fact that the requirements only list 45GB of hard drive space. If you’re exasperated with the Modern Warfare install size, don’t get too excited – that’s probably just for the beta. The Modern Warfare beta also only required 45GB of disk space, and that ballooned up to a 175GB requirement by the time of launch.

Otherwise, it’s all pretty moderate. On the low end, Cold War will scale all the way back to an i5 2500k paired with a GeForce GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7950. The recommended specs aren’t much more stringent, moving up to an i7 4770k paired with a GTX 970 or a Radeon R9 390.

Pre-loads are now live for the beta ahead of launch on October 15. For more details on the Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War PC beta, you can follow that link.
