Can My PC Run Call of Duty: Black Ops 4?

You’ll need to check your PC specs to see if it checks enough boxes to play the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta this weekend.

The fastest way to do this is to look in your System Information section in Windows.

Click on the Start Menu, choose Run and then type in msinfo32. This will bring up the info about your computer.

Another option is to look at the specs provided by the company you bought your computer from. You can look at your order information and see your PC’s specs.

Compare them to the posted Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC requirements to see if you have enough power to play.

You can check the Can You Run it page for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but they don’t have the specs listed yet, so you can’t test your PC automatically.

What If My PC Doesn’t Meet the Minimum Black Ops 4 Specs?

If you are playing below the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC requirements, you may run into more Black Ops 4 beta problems than other players.

In short, if you don’t meet the minimum requirements you can expect bad performance and depending on the specs, you may not even be able to launch the game.

Keep in mind the recommended Black Ops 4 PC requirements aren’t even to run on the best settings, just to get good performance. The minimum requirements mean you will be able to play on low settings, potentially with other compromises.

If you don’t meet the minimum requirements, you should plan on upgrading for the fall if you are playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PC. You may want to wait until the final PC requirements are announced before you buy new hardware or a new gaming PC.

5 Reasons to Buy Black Ops 4 & 3 Reasons To Wait

Buy If You Love The Look of Mutliplayer

We know a lot about the the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer experience from Treyarch, Vonderhaar and the last month of play. This is a very grounded game, but it is much faster than Call of Duty: WWII. Sliding is a very nice addition, and something I personally missed greatly during last year's Call of Duty game. 

Treyarch continues to fine tune the weapons in multiplayer and new weapons are still coming, but overall you now have a very good idea of how the game plays and how it will play for the long run. 

Specialists are back with loads of new abilities and you now have to heal your character in the game instead of it automatically happening. The Pick 10 system is back and so are perks, so you get a classic Black Ops gaming feel. Everything feels fast and fluid, like you expect from a Black Ops game. 

With no story mode, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer is a bigger component and if that is what you love about the game it's a good reason to buy now and get started with your progress towards prestige.
