The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta ended this weekend after its first run, exclusive to the PlayStation 4. It kicks off again this weekend though. Yes, it’ll be coming back to PS4, but also on Xbox One and PC.

Black Ops developer Treyarch has revealed the specs you’ll need to play the beta on PC this weekend. These specs are just for the beta though, and could change for the retail release of the game. It’s worth noting that the consoles get access to the beta through a code delivered along with pre-orders, but the PC beta will be open to all, through Battle.net. those who pre-order do get early access though. Not launching on Steam means that Activision gets to skip out on paying Valve to use its marketplace, but also gives them better control over friends lists, communication and servers.

As for what you can expect?

“This Multiplayer Beta showcases six modes—Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, Search & Destroy, and Control. You will battle over six distinct maps—the four already seen at various events, plus two new ones, Gridlock and Hacienda—across playlists that showcase all the content that the Specialists revel in.”

Without further ado, here are the specs:

Minimum:
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k or AMD equivalent
RAM: 8GB RAM
HDD: 25GB HD space
Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2 GB / GTX 1050 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850

Remember too that the beta isn’t just for dicking about it, but will also provide Treyarch and the other developers working on the Pc version the information they need to make the PC version better.

“Participating in the beta helps our development teams here at Treyarch, at Beenox, and at Blizzard gather data that is used to fine-tune the PC experience. Your feedback is not only welcome, but also a key element in ensuring that we collectively deliver the best PC experience possible.”

 

The beta starts on August 11, with early access on PC kicking off on August 10. We’ve played the first round of the beat, and so far, it’s a little samey wamey.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
