Activision Releases Modern Warfare II Open Beta System Requirements

TL;RD: 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 has raised the CPU recommendations a bit, but has kept the same GPU requirements as Vanguard.

Activision and Infinity Ward recently released system requirements for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II open multiplayer beta, which starts this weekend. Customers who pre-ordered the game can play the early access beta now, but it will be available to everyone for free from September 24-26. There’s a chance the system requirements will change before the full release on October 28, but any differences probably won’t 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 best performance. While Vanguard’s CPU suggestions stuck to the venerable old i5-2500K, Modern Warfare II seems to have moved on and requires next-gen processors.

Activision did not state what resolution or frame rate targets the specs are supposed to meet. The company also didn’t mention upgrading options like DLSS or FSR, but it’s likely that the full release will include them as DLSS appeared in the last three COD games, and Vanguard also supported FSR.

The beta version requires only 25 GB of storage. The entire game will likely need a lot more space with all the game modes installed. The rest of the system requirements are as follows:

Minimum specifications for the public beta:

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

Recommended specifications for the public beta:

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

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

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

The beta version will also include settings for the following:

  • sprint behavior
  • Auto Airborne Mantle
  • walking speed
  • Interaction/reload behavior
  • frame rate limit
  • v-sync
  • cache shadows
  • telemetry
  • players blocked
  • text chat
  • profanity filter
  • bloody effects

These additions are a testament to the wide variety of options in modern Call of Duty games.
