Call of Duty: Ghosts might require a bit of a system upgrade if you want to play it on PC – you’ll need at least 40GB of free space on your hard drive, and some 6GB of RAM to play smoothly. It’s not the most extreme system specs we’ve heard, but Activision‘s requirements are a little on the steep side.
It’s worth noting that you will need a 64-bit OS in order to duke it out against the Federation, as is becoming the new standard. Other bits and pieces aren’t too bad, but you’ve still got just over a week to upgrade if you need.
Call of Duty: Ghosts – Minimum System Requirements:
- OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Hard Disk Space: 40 GB
- Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
- Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 16-bit sound card
- Internet: Broadband Internet connection for Steam and Online Multiplayer.
A couple of weeks ago, Nvidia claimed the game would require 50GB of hard drive space and 6GB of RAM to run smoothly. At the time, Activision jumped up and down and explained that these specs were wrong, and the real ones would be less demanding. The only major difference between then and now? 10GB of hard drive, and a slightly less-powerful graphics card.
Call of Duty: Ghosts hits PC (as well as Xbox 360 and PS3) on November 5th. Xbox One and PS4 versions will follow at console launch.
