Modern Warfare Remastered system requirements are out

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
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-530 @ 2.93GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 810 @ 2.80GHz
  • Memory: 6GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI Radeon HD 7850 @ 1GB
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband internet connection
  • Hard drive: 55GB available space at launch (more space will be required for updates, DLC, etc.)
  • Sound Card: DirectX-compatible

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:

  • Supported OS: Microsoft® Windows® XP/Vista (Windows 95/98/ME/2000 are unsupported)
  • 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
  • Memory: 512MB RAM (Windows® XP), 768MB RAM (Vista®)
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or better or ATI Radeon® 9800Pro or better
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
  • Hard Drive: 8GB of free hard drive space
  • Internet: Broadband connection and service required for multiplayer connectivity

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