Nvidia has released its official PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War, detailing the hardware the PC gamers will need to run the game on PC across a wide range of image quality levels, resolutions and refresh rates.  

For starters, PC gamers should be prepared for Cold War's storage needs, requiring up to 250GB of storage when everything is downloaded. While most requirement tiers only require 175GB of storage (which is still a lot), the game's 4K Ray Tracing settings appear to feature a high-resolution texture pack or a similar optional add-on. 

Like its predecessor, Black Ops: Cold War will utilise Microsoft's DirectX 12 API, supporting both Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10 64-bit. Only Windows 10 is recommended in most instances, given the age and lack of support offered to Windows 7 users when it comes to matters of security and system drivers. 

For 60 FPS Medium settings, Black Ops - Cold War will require processors like Intel's i5-2500K or AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X. GPU-wise the game will require a graphics card like Nvidia's Geforce GTX 980 or AMD's R9 390 or better. Below are Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's full PC system requirements.

I bet if they trimmed off the multiplayer trash it would cut the install size by over 100GB, I know they say 50GB as a minimum but this is CoD, Their storage optimisation is pants.Quote

Don't need to worry about it if you don't buy it

But for those that do. It's pretty unacceptable at this point. There are far more dense games and that's before you even have better graphics.

Next gen consoles will lose 25% of their storage off the game alone before dlc, more skins, save games, etc.Quote
