Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Requirements

Activision and Treyarch have revealed the Call of Duty Cold War requirements, leaving us all a little shocked at the massive storage requirement. For all the Call of Duty fans out there who are excited about the Black Ops Cold War release, brace yourselves and your hard-drives. Because if you want to try out all modes of the best game ever, you’ll need at least 175GB of free storage space on your hard drive. If you’re going to play on 4K with max graphics, the system requires 250 GB of SSD free. However, the multiplayer components of Call of Duty Cold War require only 45 GB of storage space.

Minimum Call of Duty Cold War Requirements

The Call of Duty Cold War requirements include

  • CPU equivalent to an Intel Core i5-2500K
  • an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 graphics card
  • 8 GB RAM

Recommended Call of Duty Cold War Requirements

  1. Intel Core i7-4770K or better for CPU
  2. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Graphics card
  3. 16 GB of RAM

You can play the game at the minimum requirements given by Treyarch, but it won’t be enjoyable, and the graphics will be poor. However, if the game is played at the recommended system requirements, it will run smoothly at 60FPS with medium graphics.

Black Ops Cold War file size is over 130GB on PS5 and Xbox Series X |  GamesRadar+
