'Call Of Duty: WWII' PC Open Beta Arrives September 29

After an initial beta session exclusive to console players, Sledgehammer Games is ready for another preview of Call of Duty: World War II, this time for fans on PC. In preparation for the event, the studio released a set of minimum hardware requirements.

The developers mentioned that the following specs are for the beta only. It’s currently in the process of finalizing the official minimum and recommended specs for the game, which is coming in its next blog update. Still, you can tell that the game won’t require high-end hardware to run. Note that the specs don’t include an AMD processor, but you can always look up a proper counterpart to Intel’s chips in our CPU hierarchy chart.

The studio also announced that it’s working with Raven Software for the open beta. Raven has some experience with the franchise, as it has worked on past installments such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. However, it’s not clear what Raven Software’s official capacity is in terms of the overall development process.

    I've been waiting for minimum requirements for weeks. It's about time! Hopefully these won't change much for the official release, this bodes well for my 1050.
