The team at Treyarch studios, working in tandem with Beenox will be putting extra emphasis on the PC player base for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - so, PC gamers, what do you need to get the best possible BO4 experience?

For many, Call of Duty is primarily a console game, and even those with powerful PC setups have chosen to play the console version of past titles, due to the superior optimization.

The PC community has been vocal about the lack of time and effort which CoD developers have given over to making playing with keyboard and mouse a rewarding experience.

But this year, Treyarch have enlisted the assistance of Beenox and Blizzard's Battle.net platform, to produce the best Call of Duty release on PC possible.

So if you are considering making the switch from console Call of Duty to PC, then now is the time. The big question though which many have been asking is what both the minimum and recommended PC specs will be for the game.

With 4K, HDR and uncapped frame rate all confirmed, a solid PC rig should make playing Black Ops 4 a dream.

And while Treyarch are yet to reveal the minimum and recommended specs, due to the on going development, they have now released the full specs of the PC setups used at the recent community reveal event.

Treyarch provided a high-end PC Setup at the recent community reveal event.

Treyarch posted the full specs and equipment used via Reddit, so to give fans an early idea of the best setup for Black Ops 4.

BO4 Reveal Event: Under the PC hood

Ladies and gents,

We've been asked (a lot) about the anticipated Minimum and Recommended PC system specs for Black Ops 4. While those are still some way from being finalized as the game goes through on-going testing to ensure a great experience on as wide a range of rigs as possible, we've been asked about the specs of the machines at the Reveal Event.

That is something we can answer. Note again: This is not a Recommended specs outline, just the facts of what was used at the event. (Also note, all the capture from the Reveal Event was taken from the PS4 build, not the PC.)

  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor
  • Memory: 4 x HYPERX 8GB DDR4 DIMM
  • Video Card: 2x NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1080 8GB PCIe 3.0 (in SLI config)

Astro A40 TR headset and MixAmp

Asus:

• Monitor: 27” ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQ (4K, 60FPS, G-Sync)

• KeyboardROG STRIX Flare

• MiceROG Gladius II Origin

• Mousepad: ASUS

It is worth noting again that this is not the minimum or recommended setup - details of which should be released closer to the game's launch.

There is also confirmation that extra-wide monitors will be supported, which may be a preference for some.
