October 30, 2020 4:28 pm

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch on November 13. The game takes place during the 80s at the height of the Cold War. With major Black Ops characters returning to the franchise, this title promises to pack some serious punches. Now, the game’s latest PC trailer showcases its visual prowess with ray-tracing, DLSS, and stunning 4K gameplay.

In addition to the features mentioned in the video, it will also have advanced customization options. The official blog reads “Developer Beenox worked closely with Treyarch and all other studios to bring over 200 individual settings to fine tune on the PC version of Black Ops Cold War, from keybindings and the ability to play on a controller to graphics, audio, and interface sliders and toggles.

“Those who played the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta already experienced a wide selection of the game’s customization features; expect all those and more come launch.” 

Additionally, the game also has ultra-wide and multi-monitor support. This will be an added advantage for streamers and pros alike, delivering a highly immersive experience.

PC System Requirements for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War

The PC system requirements for the game are also announced. The most notable factor here would be the game’s size. The 175 GB size is quite hefty, and it will require players to free up space on their systems. Interestingly, the Ultra RTX experience requires a 250 GB HDD space, which means that a 250 GB SSD/HDD is already insufficient to run the game.

Take a look at the minimum and recommended PC requirements below:

Minimum Specifications:

OS Windows 7 64-Bit (SP1) or Windows 10 64-Bit (v.1803 or higher)
