Today, NVidia, one of the major graphics card manufacturers in the world, released the minimum requirements to run Call of Duty Ghosts on PC. The game itself is apparently 50GBs, and you need a minimum of 6GB of RAM to play it.
- 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
- RAM: 6 GB RAM
- HDD: 50 GB HD space
- Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
- Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
- DirectX: 11
- Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.
Why does Ghosts, which will release on current generation hardware as well, require so much hard drive space? EuroGamer speculates that it is due to NVidia’s push for PC games to be played at 4K resoultion. Many Reddit users are calling it just plain poor optimization. Hopefully, this means Ghosts will be a graphical powerhouse for PCs. Look for Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox 360, Wii U, PS3 and PC on November 5th, and on each of the new consoles at their launches.
Update: Activision has said these are not the minimum requirements, and that no specs have been released yet. We will update you once we know more.
Udate 2: Here are the real minimum specs. I’m sorry about the confusion.
