Here are the ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ PC system requirements

The system requirements for PC players on Modern Warfare 2 have been revealed

The PC system requirements for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been confirmed by Infinity Ward, with four categories of recommended settings detailed.

Ahead of Modern Warfare 2‘s launch on October 28, Infinity Ward has shared what PC fans will need “to play on day one” with four categories of system requirements – minimum, recommended, competitive and ultra 4K.

The minimum specifications are the basics required to run Modern Warfare 2, while the recommended specs will ensure players can run the game “at 60FPS in most situations with all options set to high.”

Meanwhile, the competitive recommendations are for players looking to “run at a high FPS for use with a high refresh monitor,” while the ultra 4K list is for anyone looking to play Modern Warfare 2 with a high frame rate at 4K resolution.

However, the studio has noted that the following system requirements “may be updated” after launch, and “mandatory” patches may require additional storage space in the future.
