Activision releases the system requirements for the Modern Warfare II open beta

TL;DR: If you’ve played Call of Duty: Vanguard on PC, you should probably expect similar performance from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II open beta. Activision raised the CPU recommendations slightly, but kept the same GPU requirements as Vanguard.

Activision and Infinity Ward recently released the system requirements for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Multiplayer Open Beta, which kicks off this weekend. Customers who have pre-ordered the game can play the Early Access Beta now, but it will be open to everyone for free between September 24th and 26th. There’s a chance the system requirements will change before the full release on October 28th, but any differences aren’t likely to be drastic.

Like last year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard, the Modern Warfare II beta requires at least an Nvidia GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 470 GPU. However, Activision recommends a GTX 1060 or RX 580 for better performance. While Vanguard’s CPU proposals stuck with the old and venerable i5-2500K, Modern Warfare II seems to have evolved and required later generation processors.

Activision hasn’t specified what resolution or framerate targets the specs aim to meet. The company also hasn’t mentioned upscaling options like DLSS or FSR, but the full version will likely include them as DLSS has appeared in the last three COD games and Vanguard has also supported FSR.

The beta only requires 25 GB of storage space. The entire game will likely take up much more space once all game modes are installed. The rest of the system requirements are as follows:

Minimum requirements for the public beta:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 470
  • Video memory: 3GB
  • Memory: 8 GB of memory

Recommended specs for public beta:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • Video memory: 6GB
  • RAM: 16GB RAM

By default, settings include master volume, stick sensitivity, mouse sensitivity, and brightness. Activision also explained that the beta’s settings menu has a few additional options, including a quick menu where players can save up to 15 settings for easy access in or out of a game.

Modern Warfare II also allows users to search for features in settings by pressing F while on any of the main menu screens, including the quick menu.

The beta will also include settings for the following:

  • sprint behavior
  • Automatic air jacket
  • walking pace
  • Interact/Reload Behavior
  • frame rate limit
  • v sync
  • cache shadow
  • telemetry
  • Blocked Players
  • text chat
  • profanity filter
  • gore effects

These additions are a testament to the massive range of options available in modern Call of Duty games. Activision releases the system requirements for the Modern Warfare II open beta
