Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is gearing up for launch next month with two beta weekends across all of its launch platforms. If you’re planning on getting some multiplayer in on PC you’ll have to wait until next weekend, but in the meantime, you can check out Cold War’s PC requirements to make sure you’re prepared.
It’s unlikely that you’ll be hard-pressed by the requirements too, which list generations-old processors and graphics cards as recommended, and even older ones for the minimum requirements. Nvidia’s GTX 970 was one of the most popular GPUs years ago, while Intel’s Haswell CPUs are hardly new in the current Comet Lake age.
What you will need is a decent amount of hard drive space, which shouldn’t be surprising if you’ve been keeping up with recent Call of Duty releases. For the beta alone you’ll need 45GB of space to play, which might be a bit more than you expected. Still, it’s a way off from the 250GB that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has ballooned to on PC.
