Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta PC system requirements announced

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer beta is set to kick off soon, first for PS4 this week and then for other platforms next week. Ahead of the PC beta on October 15th, Activision has announced the game’s PC hardware requirements. 

The beta period kicks off on the 8th of October for PS4 for pre-order customers, followed by an open beta on PS4 from October 10th to 12th. Then on October 15th, pre-order customers on Xbox One and PC can start beta testing. Finally, the open beta will be available across all platforms from October 17th to the 19th.

Here are the PC system requirements for the beta-

Minimum: 

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit (SP1) or Windows 10 64-Bit (1803 or later)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k or AMD equivalent.
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB / GTX 1650 4GB or AMD Radeon HD 7950.
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • HDD: 45GB HD space
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Audio: DirectX compatible, requires DirectX 12 compatible system

Recommended: 

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit (latest Service Pack)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k or AMD equivalent
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB / GTX 1660 Super 6GB or AMD Radeon R9 390 / AMD RX 580
  • RAM: 16GB RAM
  • HDD: 45GB HD space
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Audio: DirectX compatible, requires DirectX 12 compatible system

The beta includes a mix of maps and multiplayer modes, an early look at the multiplayer progression system, score streaks, class creation and unlockable weapons/equipment for your loadout.

The Black Ops Cold War beta will just take up 45GB on your HDD/SSD, but if last year’s Modern Warfare is any indication, we can expect the game to get much, much bigger.
