Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta PC Minimum and Recommended Specs Revealed

Can your PC run it?

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is back for two more open betas this weekend, one for consoles and the other PC. To that end Treyarch revealed the PC specs you'll need when the open beta opens up to all players on August 11.

If you're playing on PC, Treyarch posted the beta specs for Black Ops 4. These specs aren't indicative of what you'll need for the final version of Black Ops 4 when it comes out later this year, but it's what you'll need for the weekend. They are as follows:

Minimum PC Specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • HDD: 25GB space
  • Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB/ GTX 1050 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card of equivalent
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Recommended PC Specs

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Black Ops 4 will be available through, not Steam, so be sure you're squared up with Activision-Blizzard's online launcher. Along with Black Ops 4, Fallout 76 also will be skipping Steam, opting instead for Bethesda's own game launcher.

We tried out the Black Ops 4 beta a bit on PS4 last weekend and discovered that the dogs are hilariously broken. But we'll be back at Black Ops 4 again for its PC release as well, so check out our Black Ops 4 beta guide for the latest updates and info.
