Activision significantly reduces the free disk-space requirements for COD: Black Ops Cold War

Last month, Activision revealed the official PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. According to those specs, PC gamers would need 175GB for installing the MP and SP modes, and 250GB for gaming in 4K/Ray Tracing. However, Treyarch has revised and significantly reduced these free hard-disk space requirements.

According to the new specs, PC gamers will now need 82GB for installing both SP and MP modes. The MP mode will weigh around 35GB, and the SP Mode will weigh around 47GB.

In order to play on Ultra settings in 4K with Ray Tracing, PC gamers will now need 125GB of free hard-disk space. This basically means that Treyarch has reduced the size of the game by 50%. From what we know, this Ultra preset will also include a HD Texture Pack.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will support Ray Tracing and DLSS on launch day, and is coming out on November 13th. On the PC, the game will be using DX12, will have FOV slider and uncapped framerates. Here are also the game’s official PC system requirements.
