The final piece of this month's hectic first-person-shooter marathon arrives next week with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It may have the most disliked trailer in YouTube history, but I have funny feeling that's not going to stop COD: Infinite Warfare selling like gangbusters. Series veterans Infinity Ward are back at the helm this time around, steering the biggest franchise in gaming to a new frontier - space. Don't jump in your spaceship too quickly though, check out COD: Infinite Warfare's official system requirements to see if your PC is up to the task.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 820 2.8 GHz
- RAM: 8 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7850
- DX: DirectX 11
- HDD: 70 GB available storage
The easiest way to size these specs up is to compare them to last year's outing - Black Ops 3. Across the border there's only an incremental jump up in demands, so chances are if you could play COD BLOPS 3 with any degree of reliability then you should be good to go here with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
CPU demands are where COD: Infinite Warfare is most lenient. Only a low-end Core i3 or an aging Phenom II X4 810 are required, so anyone with a CPU bought in the last five or so years will be fine.
In terms of graphics cards the actual raw performance required for Call of Duty: IW remains pretty much the same, but you will need a graphics card a generation or two newer. Both the GeForce GTX 660 and the Radeon HD 7850 were mid-range graphics cards four or so years ago when they came out so you're only really going to struggle if you an extremely low-end model graphics card from today such as any GT x10 or x20 models for GeForce owners.
Probably the most noticeable part of these system specs is the huge 70GB install for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The COD series keeps ballooning in size with every version so this should come as little surprise. Bear in mind as well that if you also buy the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare which includes Modern Warfare 4: Remastered, the total installation size jumps to 130GB.
Ah, and one last thing. We've only got the minimum specs for Infinite Warfare and that's likely all we'll have. Black Ops III never had recommended specs released. We have however updated the game page with predicted recommended requirements based on the demands of last year's version, so be sure to check that out if you want perfect performance.
