The Call of Duty community is eagerly anticipating the October 25 release date of Modern Warfare, as Infinity Ward’s latest installment generates significant hype. But what requirements are there for the PC players?

Call of Duty has, in recent years, put particular emphasis on trying to raise the profile of their games in the PC community. They have specifically used BattleNet to encourage PC players to play CoD; a game that has been traditionally console focused. 

The PC vs Console argument continues to rage on, with PC having some obvious advantages such as improved frame rate and FOV sliders that are, as of yet, not available in console CoD games. But, some PC players have been left feeling undervalued by the developers.

Activision Blizzard have now confirmed the minimum required specifications for a PC to run Modern Warfare, as well as the recommended specs. 

This gives players an idea of what is a necessity and what they will be able to do to maximize their experiences. 

Minimum storage space for Modern Warfare is listed as 175GB available and 8GB RAM memory. The full PC requirements can be seen below.

The requirements will not provide much of a surprise to dedicated PC players, whose PCs will likely already conform to the requirements. 

However, it’s worth checking if you’re waiting for Modern Warfare, to ensure you can get straight into the game when it releases on October 25. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also marks the first time a CoD game will feature cross play - seeing PC players being able to compete against their console rivals. 

Maybe this feature will finally see a conclusion to the endless PC vs Console debate. Or maybe it’ll just exacerbate it as CoD players strive to prove their platform is the best.
