PC system requirements for Infinity Wards Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, have officially been released, for Windows XP and Windows 7 and Windows Vista. According to Shacknews, the minimum hardware that IW says is needed to run the game on would be:
-Intel Pentium 4 3.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor or better supported
-1 GB RAM
– 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT or better or ATI Radeon 1600XT or better Microsoft DirectX 9.0c graphics card
-12GB of free hard drive space
-100% DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
Broadband connection required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet required for activation.
Even though these specs make it look like just a console port, and not a very advanced one at that, dont forget how great Modern Warfare 1 looked and felt, with specs lower than these. Wait for the gameplay to judge this one. Also, previous statements from Infinity Ward indicate the multiplayer part of the game will be linked up with Steam, in addition to the controversial IWNet matchmaking system. Modern Warfare 2 is slated for release on November 10.
