Every major game media outlet speaking and anticipating the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War for PC is getting closer as the date has been scheduled for release on November 13th and, as of the time of this writing, it’s almost at hand.
Meanwhile, Activision has not been sleeping on their fans, as the multi-conglomerate game studio recently shared detailed system specifications from the least detailed to most detailed requirements that will enable fans to play at Ultra settings with Ray Tracing—available for both ambient and shadows occlusion—enabled.
The fun part is that while players will need a minimum hard drive space of 175 GB to get access to play all the modes available—by the way, multiplayer will only require a little less low than 50GB—they will need to have disk space above 250B for Ultra settings, to get higher-resolution textures during gameplay.
