Black Ops – Cold War PC system requirements fully revealed

The Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War system requirements now here in full, after an early reveal in time for the beta. At a basic level, 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. But the devs have detailed specifics for loads more configurations this time around.

After the 45GB beta, the devs have confirmed that the full install will require 175GB of disc space, though if you uninstall unwanted Cold War modes, you’ll be able to drop that size down to as little as 50GB for multiplayer alone.

The specs to get running at 60fps on medium settings are pretty moderate. Cold War will scale back to an i5 2500k or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X paired with a GeForce GTX 970 / GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390 / RX 580 for a solid frame rate, though if you’re on a true potato, the game will run on even worse hardware.

The full specs at each tier are as follows.

I was thinking the PC requirements would be this and sure enough it is.


Glad they're letting you only install multiplayer this time around. Never play the campaign anymore as it is an xp waste.


Yeah this is what I expected them to look like
