Publisher Activision has released Call of Duty Advanced Warfare’s minimum system requirements, which are surprisingly not notably more intensive than the system requirements for the game’s predecessor, Call of Duty: Ghosts. PC gamers looking to have a good time will need more space (55GB, to be exact) to install Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, but memory and graphics cards remain the same.
It’s almost as if Activision’s blockbuster first-person shooter isn’t as big an improvement over Ghosts as many expected, but we all know that’s not necessarily true. The system requirements are as follows:
- OS: OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
- Processor: Intel® CoreTM i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD PhenomTM II X4 810 @ 2.80 GHz or better
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 5870 @ 1GB or better
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Hard Drive: 55 GB available space
- Sound Card: DirectX-compatible
As the eleventh primary installment in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare takes place in the year 2054. A terrorist organization known as the KVA initiates the first global terrorist attack in history by simultaneously destroying the nuclear reactors of developed countries around the globe, including those of the almighty United States. As a result of the blind-sided attack, Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces for many nations, and represent the first line of defense against the new enemy.
You play the role of Jack Mitchell (voiced by Troy Baker), a former U.S. marine who joins one such PMC — Atlas! Atlas takes on clandestine assignments of varying difficulty around the globe as the company’s CEO Jonathan Irons (voiced by Kevin Spacey) begins a war to “promote” democracy all over the world and to change the global balance of power.
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is playable on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
