November is right around the corner and you know what that means: a new Call of Duty game to be released. With the newest addition to the series, Call of Duty: Ghosts, arriving on November 5th , gamers playing on PC must be wondering about the requirements allotted to play the game on their machine. This is how the minimum requirements look:
The operating system has to be with Windows 7 or Windows 8, both the 64-bit versions. Required CPU is anything equivalent to or better than the Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ and the AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ while the minimum memory required is 6 GB of RAM, a heavy amount. The hard drive better have 40 free gigabytes of memory to store the game data as well.
Graphically, a pc needs more modern graphics starting from the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 and ATI Radeon HD 5870 and above with a DirectX compatible sound card with DirectX 11. The standard broadband internet connection is required for online play and usage with Steam, but no doubt anyone getting Call of Duty: Ghosts will already have this intact.
There it is, the somewhat overwhelming requirements to run the next big first person shooter. While it does seem to be a bit excessive, each new addition to the Call of Duty series has ramped up the visual style of the previous iteration, so this comes to little surprise. Maybe gamers are in for an even bigger game than they initially expected.
Find out on November 5th.
