Gamescom 21: Meet Paulina Petrova in an extended look at Call of Duty: Vanguard

If you’re a PC gamer looking to dig into the new Call of Duty: Vanguard when it launches this week, there are a few things you need to check out.

But first, a trailer

The new trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard is epic. Not only is this launch look massive in scale, but it’s massive in screen too. Yep, Vanguard is going wide-screen for it’s PC gaming debut.

And it’s a stunner.

Okay, now for the nuts and bolts

Along with that gorgeous new look at the game in action, Activision also delivered the facts when it comes to just what kind of a rig you’ll need to get the game looking that good.

As you might imagine, to get the best-possible visuals, you’ll need a pretty great system. But if you just want to run it, then you’ll find that Vanguard isn’t all that demanding.

The minimum specs are:

  • 8GB RAM
  • 36 GB at launch (Multiplayer and Zombies only) of storage
  • An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 470 video card
  • 2GB video memory
  • An Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300 CPU
  • and Windows 10 64-bit with the latest update

As for the Ultra settings, well they’re ever-so-slightly higher. To run the game in that state will require:

  • An Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
  • 16gigs of RAM
  • 61GB of storage at launch, with an extra 64gigs for hi-res storage
  • An NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
  • 10GB of vid memory
  • and of course that Win10 64-bit, updated
