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
