Now Playing: Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Early Access Gameplay Live

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's release is here, and you may be wondering if your PC can handle the lift. Activision has released its minimum and recommended specs through its official support site so you can check before dropping in on the action.

The specs are almost identical to those of the Black Ops 4 beta, with a few notable differences that actually make it easier to handle. The full game allows for an Intel Core i3 instead of an i5 in the minimum specs, and an i5 instead of an i7 in the recommended specs. So overall, you actually need a slightly less beefy machine to handle the full game. And naturally, you need more hard drive space--80 GB instead of the 25 taken up by the beta.

If you're playing on consoles, meanwhile, you'll need to download a sizable day-one patch before you can begin playing. You'll be able to jump into the new battle royale mode, Blackout, once the game is about 30% installed, but it'll be a longer wait before multiplayer and Zombies are ready to go. For more on the game, check out our buying guide for details on the different editions and their associated goodies, as well as our Black Ops 4 review.

@dont_redirectme: It is not multiplayer only, but I guess you wouldn't know that due to the fact all you probably do is critique this game without ever actually playing it knowing how much content it really has.

@drthanatos: Outside of a training mode, and playing on a lan, it essentially is a MP only game though. I guess you can play multiplayer game modes against bots. 80% of it's users never touched single player mode. But if you don't enjoy online play this game isn't for you. It's important not to spread misinformation.

@serialsteve: You can also play all 3 (4 if you purchased the season pass) Zombie maps solo or split screen, which take multiple hours to complete the main story line. Also if anyone purchased Call of Duty for the Campaign only then that has not been worth $60 alone in a long time. I'm not here saying CoD doesn't have it's faults it has plenty. I am just tired of people who don't actually play the games critiquing it. It would be like me hopping on the bandwagon of calling The Last Jedi a terrible film with out ever seeing it. (i have seen it and it is bad, lol).

All I'm saying is this Call of duty has much more content then the past two CoDs and I can reliably say so. But if you don't enjoy multiplayer or Zombies or Blackout why would you ever just buy CoD for its Campaign. I absolutely love the campaigns in MW1, MW2, BO1, and WaW. But I would never purchase CoD just to experience the campaign.
