    Yes… the good PC team is back. This is exciting

  • I have a feeling that it’ll be bigger than GTA V, welp looks like i only have to upgrade my RAM

  • TheTripleJBrothers

    jebus, im suprised that the game can still run with those kind of specs on. Not bad……

    • Ofc if it isn’t optimized shitty like Ghosts

      • TheTripleJBrothers

        I approve.

    • Ismael Khan

      I thought the same.

    • SoulTaker

      Well the GTX 470 is basically equivalt to a PS4 or Xbox One apparently from what I’ve read.

  • BS234

    damn im very close to the minimum specs i think its time for upgrading my pc

  • Linkinito

    SHG gives them like one month before release, Treyarch gives them at reveal.

    GG Treyarch.

    • J4MES

      ….Sledgehammer still don’t even know the actual specs for their game either – it’s a complete unoptimized mess on PC!

      • Primey_

        Not really. It’s very well optimized.

        • Mini

          I’ll agree with you if you have stopped playing a month ago. They fucked up the last patch

        • RdJokr

          Not as well as BO2, unfortunately. Singleplayer is mostly OK, but multiplayer is where it hurts. I haven’t been playing on Defender for ages now, and the recent patch made Bio Lab and Exo Zombies a total mess. Frame drops and frameskipping everywhere.

        • J4MES

          Not on AMD or even 4K for that matter.

    • They have to for the Beta

  • Bertram Hein

    yaay ! Treyarch , the masters of PC versions are back wuuhuuw :3 nice specs , if that will run smooth there i hope for a well optimized game like blops 2

    any idea on when it’ll be available on steam for pre-order?

  • Blaine

    HD 6970 1GB minimum for graphics. I remember when BO2 launched, my card was a HD 6950 1GB at the time. That’s crazy.

  • RdJokr

    Seriously, this is a good sign to come. Early PC information, plus Drift0r’s tweet about PC just basically confirms one thing: Activision is taking the PC market seriously again. I believe Black Ops III will be the COD game PC gamers deserve.
