Yay, it’s time for a new Call of Duty so make sure your hard drives are empty, it’s massive download time!
Download wise, if you want the full install with hi-res textures you are looking at a 125GB download.
A standard install will set you back 82GB but you are just going for the multiplayer-only, like many no doubt will, the devs have trimmed the install size to “just” 35GB which isn’t bad we suppose.
If you want to get 60fps running smoothly the specs are pretty reasonable. You’ll need an i5 2500k or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X paired with a GeForce GTX 970 / GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390 / RX 580 to hit the 60 consistently.
The devs have released specs for several tiers though, so check out the table below to see what you can expect to achieve with what you have in your rig.
