This weekend, starting on Friday, the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer servers will come online for the first time. However, this beta weekend is only for PlayStation users, but PC and Xbox players will get their chance the following weekend. For PC players, Sledgehammer Games has released the list of PC requirements for the Vanguard beta so they know what to expect in terms of performance.

Fans can experience more of what the game has to offer during the betas, including more weapons, perks, killstreaks and more.

Minimum PC requirements for Vanguard beta

These requirements are specifically for the beta build of Vanguard. The full game will likely feature a different set of requirements as Sledgehammer makes improvements to the graphics and PC accessibility. For right now, though, this is what PC players need to run Vanguard at the bare minimum.

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit (1909 or later)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 2GB/ GTX 1050Ti 4GB or AMD Radeon R9 380
  • HDD: 45GB HD Space
  • Other: Broadband Internet connection and DX12 support

These aren’t too modern of specifications but they aren’t ancient either. Players will need a somewhat decent PC to run the Vanguard beta on low settings at 1080p with at least 30 frames per second.

Recommended PC requirements for Vanguard beta

Finally, the recommended requirements for the beta are for players that want to run Vanguard at 1080p on medium-high settings at around 60 frames per second.

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit (latest Service Pack)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770k or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB RAM
  • Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 2GB/ GTX 1660 6GB or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
  • HDD: 45GB HD Space
  • Other: Broadband Internet connection and DX12 support

These lists will likely change when Vanguard fully launches on Nov. 5, but they will suffice for the beta.
