Update: Call of Duty: Ghosts Has 50 GB Install

Nvidia reveals PC minimum system requirements for Call of Duty: Ghosts.

If you were putting off installing your new hard drive, now might be the time. The minimum specifications for the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts, posted by Nvidia, reveal a requirement for a staggering 50 GB of hard drive space. For reference, Borderlands 2 requires 13 GB, Far Cry 3 needs 15 GB, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will eat 30 GB of your precious storage. If you are a typical Steam user, according to the monthly voluntary survey, installing Call of Duty: Ghosts could require more than 10% of your total hard drive space, not to mention the time required to download it. The download requirements for console versions are yet to be revealed, but a similarly large investment of space is likely.

Here’s the full list of specifications provided by Nvidia:

Minimum System Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
  • RAM: 6 GB RAM
  • HDD: 50 GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX: 11
  • Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.

Recommended System Requirements:

  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780

Call of Duty: Ghosts arrives for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC on November 5. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will have Call of Duty: Ghosts as a launch title. Activision has announced that early adopters will be able to upgrade their games to the next generation systems for as little as $10. As long as they have space to install it, of course.
