We are counting days to the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. If you have already taken a week (or month) off work to play the new installment in the popular franchise, we assume that you would like to know when it is going to be available in your region.
Treyarch and Activision have announced that you can already start preloading the game via Battle.net. This was made possible as the installation is quite huge with 55GB of total hard drive space needed. The official release date is October 12th. However, if you are in Los Angeles, you will technically get to play the game on October 11th since it will be released at 9 PM Pacific time. You will need to do some calculating to figure out your time zone’s exact start, but the entire world will get the chance to play it by Friday afternoon, right in time for the weekend.
What Are the Final System Requirements for COD: Black Ops 4?
We had the chance to play the beta of the Blackout mode and it seems that the developers downgraded the requirements from then. These are definitely good news for owners for weaker machines, but let’s discuss what kind of PC you need to have to run COD. For starters, you will need to have at least a 64-bit Windows 7. When it comes to CPU, the minimum required is AMD FX-6300 and his Intel equivalent, which is I3-4340. The graphics required are Radeon HD 7950 2GB or GeForce GTC 1050 or 660 2 GB.
As expected, the recommended settings are set a bit higher with Ryzen R5 1600X or Intel I5-2500K and 12GB RAM required. The graphics required for optimum performance are Radeon AMD RX 580 or R9 390 or GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or GTX 970 4GB.
The important thing to mention is that there are recommended settings for players that aim to play COD Black Ops 4 for competitive reasons. If you use 1080p refresh rate, you will need 16GB RAM and AMD Ryzen 1800x or Intel I7-8700K. It is also advised to have Radeon RX Vega64 or GeForce GTX 1080.
The only thing we can hope for now is that there won’t be too many issues during launch and that we will be able to enjoy new COD to the fullest since day one.
