No doubt many of you took the chance to go hands-on with Call of Duty: WWII during its recent PC open beta, but since then Sledgehammer Games has been busy getting ready for release, including nailing down the final system requirements for Call of Duty: WWII on PC.

Call of Duty: WWII Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 3.3 GHz or AMD 5 1400 3.2GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 / GeForce GTX 1050 or Radeon HD 7850 / Radeon RX 550
  • HDD: 90GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

Call of Duty: WWII Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 4-Core 3.1 GHz or AMD R5 1600X 6-Core 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 6GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 970/ GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon R9 390 / Radeon RX 580
  • HDD: 90GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

The system requirements for Call of Duty: WWII have only been tweaked slightly from the recent beta. The one major change is the installation size, unsurprisingly. The beta clocked in at just 25GB, but the final PC version of COD: WWII requires 90GB of space on your hard drive. That's pretty damn huge so expect a hefty download size, it sounds like a good one to try out with CompactGUI.

Aside from this, the only other notable change is the shift in minimum CPU for AMD users. An AMD FX-4300 won't cut it anymore. Instead, Sledgehammer Games is recommending the very latest AMD Ryzen 5 1400 processor. That's a frankly ridiculous jump so we've got no idea what's going on there. The Ryzen 5 1400 is more than twice as fast a multi-threaded performance than both the FX-4300 and the minimum spec Intel Core i3-3225 processor.

With that out of the way, everything else is pretty much business as usual. Call of Duty's been running on the same modified engine for years now and we don't foresee any major performance problems at launch, despite a few iffy spots in the COD:WW2 beta.

 

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Call of Duty: WWII System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Call of Duty: WWII GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Call of Duty: WWII Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

90gb hard drive is a concernable i mean downloading it when you have low speed net etc seeing Nioh also requires more than 90gb as well. what would be the space requirement in coming time like in 2018,2019?whoo

To be honest i maxed it out in the beta with textures at high at 1080p NEAR 60FPS WITH 1050TI !!!

we don't know if they buffed the textures and graphics and such, plus the singleplayer in CoD for the past 4 games has always had better graphics than the multiplayer.

Well IW had an 8-11 hour campaign, depending on the difficulty and players, so I doubt this one will be shorter.

that's true. But there was a time when the only space consuming games are open world, not shooter haha

I hope not, I play it on PC :/
And after the beta it was top 5 on steam sales for the week... I really hope it maintains >10,000 average players the first year. :/

So i3 3225 is compareable to R5 1400 and i5 2400 is compareable to R5 1600? Wtf

game optimization varies, do NOT expect any AAA titles to be properly optimized if at all for Ryzen until early 2019, since AAA titles take 3-5 years to develop and CoD WWII started development in 2014, plus AMD started shipping ryzen samples in late 2016 to SOME developers.


Plus developers do NOT test each possible configuration, they test what they have on hand.

Some games are already optimised. If those two CPUs run the same that's not simple optimisation, that's incompetence. The i3 is half a decade old, and was a budget CPU at the time.

I said "properly" optimized as well, just releasing a patch saying they've optimized the game for ryzen does NOT mean it's good optimization.

it is just badly written requirements. This game actually utilises all of the CPU threads so the ryzen chips will perform far better than those old i3s and i5s

Yeah I'm hopeful that's the case (haven't got AMD so didn't try with the beta)

feelings have nothing to do with it and until 2019 expect it to be this way, AAA games take 3-5 years to be developed(and even more sometimes) and AMD gave Ryzen samples to SOME developers in late 2016, you can NOT expect games like CoD WWII which began it's development in 2014, to have good optimization for Ryzen.


Plus developers do NOT have every CPU in the world and believe me, they do NOT test it on many systems, they test it on probably 8-10 configurations, see which works optimal for their standards and call the requirements.

un-optimized for Ryzen I see, at least according to the requirements, which does NOT surprise me, what surprises me are the storage requirements, how many supply drops skins are there to freaking reach 90GB for a linear singleplayer + match based multiplayer shooter?
