Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC Beta System Specs Revealed

Is your PC up to snuff?

3 Comments

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is preparing to kick off its open beta later this week. If you're planning to jump in, now is the time to make sure your PC is up to snuff. To that end, Activision has revealed the minimum and recommended specs for the open beta, though it's careful to note these specs are for the beta only--which means they may change slightly before the final game release.

The beta will be handled through Battle.net, so first and foremost, make sure you have an account ready. The multiplayer beta will cover six modes: team deathmatch, domination, hardpoint, kill confirmed, search and destroy, and control. Six maps will be available, including two that haven't been available in previous previews--Gridlock and Hacienda.

The private beta will be open to anyone who pre-ordered Black Ops 4, starting at 10 AM PT / 7 AM ET on Friday, August 10. The next day on August 11 at the same time, it will open to all users. If you're still looking to pre-order, Activision is offering a lovely (and expensive) $200 collector's edition. At the conclusion, Activision will send an optional survey for players to gather data and feedback on the game. Black Ops 4 will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 12.
