System requirements for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered are here, ahead of the game's November 4 launch. Well, the minimum are, anyway: no recommended requirements are anywhere to be found. Then again, they weren't for the original Modern Warfare either.

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit / Windows 10 64-bit

The 450 versus 7850 is strange, to say the least.

If you're curious to, compare those to the original requirements, the difference between which is quite a bit higher than one might expect:

  • DirectX Version: Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (included)
  • Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 2.4GHz / AMD(R) 64 (TM) 2800+ / Intel® and AMD® 1.8GHz Dual Core Processor or better supported

Modern Warfare Remastered is packaged with Infinite Warfare, which also launches November 4.
