Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Requires Absurd Amount of Hard Drive Space on PC

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to launch in a few weeks time across PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Since the game appears to be quite graphically intensive, some PC players may need to make sure that their rig can run it. Luckily, Activision has released the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC specs, letting players know the minimum and recommend requirements necessary to play the latest Call of Duty game.

One of the most striking things about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC specs is the ridiculous amount of storage space required for the game. Anyone who plans on picking up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PC will need to have a whopping 175GB of free space available if they want to install the game. Considering the game's high quality graphics and the sheer amount of content that will be available, this huge storage space requirement isn't all that surprising, but it may still come as a shock to some.

Here are the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC minimum and recommended PC specs.

Minimum Requirements

  • Operating System: Windows® 7 64-bit (SP1) or Windows® 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 670 / NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon™ HD 7950 – DirectX 12.0 compatible system
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Storage: 175 GB available hard drive space
  • Internet: Broadband Internet connection

Recommended Requirements

  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen™ R5 1600X
  • Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970 / NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1660 or AMD Radeon™ R9 390 / AMD Radeon™ RX 580 – DirectX 12.0 compatible system

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looks to be delivering quite a bit of content for FPS fans, so some may have expected the huge storage space requirement. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare basically has three distinct experiences in the package, including a campaign with fan favorite characters like Captain Price, the standard Call of Duty multiplayer mode, and the return of the Spec Ops co-op mode. However, Infinity Ward has expanded both multiplayer and Spec Ops to be much bigger in scope than they ever were before.

For example, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer now has the old-school multiplayer experience on top of the 2v2 Gunfight mode and the 32v32 Ground War mode. Spec Ops, meanwhile, has two different versions for everyone to try at launch. Operations sees teams of four work together to complete objectives and take down targets, where as Missions provide a more familiar Spec Ops experience for fans of the older games.

It's worth pointing out that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PC won't even have the full experience, as Spec Ops Survival is a PS4 exclusive for an entire year. It's possible that the storage space requirement takes that content into account as well, though we can't know for sure at this time. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see what the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare file size ends up being on consoles, and if it will be comparable to the PC version.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
