    Call of Duty Black Ops system requirements??

    I was wondering what WILL be system requirements for COD Black Ops...

    My personal opinion is that if I can run COD MW2, I can also run COD Black Ops...but I'm not sure

    So I'm asking...thanks in andvance

    I wish I could help, because if I could that would mean I could predict the future and that would be so cool!
    *starts wondering what it would be like*












    *snaps off*
    Look, just wait until the game comes out. Until then either it's like the the ones already existing or it will be more demanding. Except the developers, nobody knows. It's like GPUs, until it's out and reviewed, performance is just a big ?

    Xbox360 or PS3

    If you look at WaW v CoD4, all they really did was upgrade the textures and did nothing with the rest of the game beyond that, so yes if your system can run MW2 it should run CoD:BO just fine.

    It's the typical system requirements most games similar to CoD.

    Just make sure you have a dual-core @ 2.0Ghz or more.
    As for GPU, as long as you have a HD4000 series card, you're fine.
    Or even one of the GTX200 series cards.

    They haven't been showen yet.

    But as the others have said, you can pretty much bet it's gonna be very similar to the other recent COD games(COD4, MW2)

    um....its dx9 isn't it? ergo if u can run MW2, BO isn't going to have drastically more demanding graphics on the same engine. You'll be fine

    I think so...maybe a little bigger requirements from COD MW2,

    I think it'll be graphics, CPU and RAMs will be the same,

    I can't wait Treyarch to post requirements, I'm nervous...lol

    the requirements wont be much higher, cause it will be the same engine regurgitated.

    ram requirements cant go up cause of the limited DX9 engine and 32 bit OS compatibility (so, 2GB max ram for the game), we know it wont multithread all that well (DX9 engine, combined with the fact the previous games didnt multithread much) and again, going by the previous games.. it may take a bit to max out, but overall the graphics requirements will be low, for low settings and high for high settings.


    oh and expect the same old audio bugs to be present (crashes if no mic/input detected)

    What? I run the COD series on far less than that and I run everything at max. Single core is sufficient, and a lower tier gfx card is too. The COD series is extremely well optimized, well at least the engine is.

    BTW: This is a game I am interested in. Once I heard about gambling and "One in the Chamber," I knew that this was going to be neat. I totally skipped MW2 cause of the dedicated server BS, and am glad I did. Inb4 some politician says: "Black Ops teaches our kids to gamble and kill taliban, do you want your children to have those values?

    If another Black Ops thread isnt allowed, please delete this one mods (and sorry :( ). All of the other BO threads are about BO vs MoH etc. This thread is for those that are currently playing it to chat and share their views on the game.

    The version I have is the Hardened Edition on the XBOX 360.

    Personally, Im loving it :rockout: Having access to the Zombie mode from the very beginning is great, because who doesnt love some mindless Zombie killing? :D The initial Zombie map is MASSIVE with loads of doors to open and sections to explore (being able to purchase a double barrel shotgun from the very start of the missions is nice). Also, rumours on the internet point to 1 or 2 other Zombie modes being available upon completion of the game :

    One of the Zombie modes involve zombies attacking the Pentagon and you play as either JFK, Nixon, Castro or Robert McNamara to fend them off.

    The visuals and audio seem to have been refined since World At War (and even Modern Warfare 2), ie not massively different, but improved for sure. Even the guns 'feel' different, but better.

    The storyline is great also. Without spoiling anything, so far (Im in Vietnam atm) you play the game through a series of flashbacks based on the career of the Black Op Alex Mason. Black Ops, for me so far, contains some rather epic moments, just like WaW and MW2. For example, without spoiling anything, jumping from a moving plane onto a 50. cal turret to take out enemy vehicles so your team mates can evade capture and a prison break that rivals the movie 'The Last Castle' (if you have seen this outstanding movie, you will know what parts Im referring to when you play the game ;) )

    Its also awesome to run into a familar face -

    Reznov from World At War. Older, but still a badass Russian!

    Obviously, I only started playing this last night, so Im not very far into it, I havent even tried the MP yet and I dont want to say anythng that will spoil this great game for you guys :)

    A new COD game every year? Ye no thank you. The COD series has gone to hell after COD4. The COD games are now are extremely generic.

    They're all the exact same, feel the same and look the same, just different theme. Definitely not worth 60 bucks.
    MxPhenom 216 and department76 say thanks.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion ;)

    The CoD titles aren't everybodies cup of tea, but A LOT of people play and enjoy them. For me, World At War was worth the purchase for the sheer amount of time I spent on the Zombie mode (not many people can deny how much fun that is!).

    This game is f*cking epic! Possible even better than Modern Warfare 2 :eek: The variety of weapons is the best Ive seen in an FPS of this style. Im currently using a G11 to take out a sh!t load of Spetnaz :rockout:

    LAN is not actually LAN. Internet access is required to authenticate. Then, the listening server runs over LAN.

    iNet required.



    I CANNOT WAIT. I am not touching multiplayer (apart form admining server) until i finish the SP. =D

    Definitely agreed,

    After COD 2 the series lost it's awesomeness for me, COD 4 definity brought the awesomeness back a bit. After that it all became just a quick cash in series, hyping the name while stripping the franchise down. But to each their own of course.;)

    I'll probably pick up Black Ops when it hits the bargin bin though..
