The next COD game, Ghosts is nearly with us and the requirements are looking like they are huge. Following in the footsteps of the Assassins Creed 4 requirements, we are thinking that the next gen level of tech requirements are finally here in full force.
Lets take a look at the Call of Duty Ghosts system requirements...
Call of Duty Ghosts Minimum System Requirements
OS: Win 7 64-Bit or Win 8 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ or an AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ
RAM: 6GB system memory
HD : 40GB of free hard disk
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5870 or NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Ti
DX: 11 Direct X
NET: Activation requires one off internet connection and of course multiplayer will also need constant internet access
Ok I can sense some of you are weeping right now. After all, thats some pretty hefty requirements for Ghosts minimum specs. But this is "next gen" according to the marketing. What remains to be seen is whether Ghosts will look and play like it is worth 50GB of hard space, minimum of 6GB RAM and a powerful Radeon HD 5870, or if it is just badly ported.
Another thing to consider is that they may be exaggerating the minimum system requirements because they need to give the impression that Ghosts really is a Next Gen title, when in fact there might be a chance that it will run on a lesser machine and still look good.
Only time will tell and once we get our hands on Call of Duty Ghosts we will run it through its paces to see what lesser PC machines can do with it.
A final thing to note is that the Radeon HD 5870 is quite a bit more powerful than the GTX 550 Ti, which further suggests that Nvidia are the ones that have early access to this game for early optimising purposes.

Okay, its your turn guys, lets hear your thoughts?
