Here's what you need to play Call of Duty Vanguard on PC

Call of Duty: Vanguard's PC system requirements have been revealed

Alongside a new PC trailer for the game, Activision has released the PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Vanguard, revealing the hardware that you will need to play the latest iteration of the series.   

Like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Vanguard will be available on PC exclusively through Battle.net. Additionally, new streaming technologies within Vanguard will dramatically reduce the game's storage requirements on PC, making Vanguard 50% smaller than Call of Duty: Warzone. 

On PC, Call of Duty: Vanguard's latest trailer promises improved input latency, support for Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR, ultrawide displays, and lots of customisable graphics options. Like its predecessors, Call of Duty; Vanguard is a DirectX 12 game that is designed to be played using Windows 10 or Windows 11. 

Storage-wise, Call of Duty: Vanguard can be installed in sections, with the game's multiplayer and zombies mode taking up 36GB of storage while the full game occupies 61GB of storage. The game also has an optional "Hi-Res assets cache" option that can take up an additional 64GB of storage.
