Call of Duty: Vanguard is releasing tomorrow and if you’re playing the game on PC then you probably want to know what specs you need to run the game. Activision has taken a stance this year to help reduce the massive file size of Call of Duty: Vanguard. This is in comparison to previous games that required over 100GB of storage space at launch. Thankfully on PC, Call of Duty: Vanguard is now sitting at 61GB of storage space.

Activision claims that gamers will have the option to install optional high-resolution texture packs that come in at either 32GB or 64GB. This depends on your settings and if your PC can meet the demand for the packs. Sure, this means Call of Duty: Vanguard comes in at 125GB but at least you have options to reduce these files down. For example, if you can’t or don’t want RTX, you can stick to the 32GB download. Or simply leave these packs alone.

The Call of Duty: Vanguard is now currently available to pre-load on the launcher. The pre-load went live already either this week. As for the system requirements, take a look below:

Why Is Horizon Zero Dawn So Popular on PS4/PS5?

Horizon Zero Dawn is the best-selling PS4 exclusive for a number of reasons. The first thing that struck me about Horizon Zero Dawn was how drop-dead unbelievably gorgeous the game is. Everything looks great: Aloy, the environments, the robots, and other humans, literally everything. Aloy looks great and is wonderfully animated. There are a huge array of environments in Horizon Zero Dawn; dense jungles, frozen tundras, imposing mountains, dilapidated cities, futuristic military installations, and alien cauldrons. The diversity of biomes is just staggering and even though it feels weird that they are all within walking distance from one another. There is just always something new and interesting to see. The robots all look great as well; they are all richly detailed with multiple layers of weapons, armor, and synthetic muscles as well as being amazingly animated. They also have great visual design so it is easy to tell from a glance what robot you were fighting and even if you have never encountered a robot before you can make a good guess as to how dangerous an enemy robot is going to be and what it does. This great visual design extends to the other human characters too; all the tribes have a varied visual design that also gives hints towards their origin and culture. The game also has this habit of setting up the most beautiful scenes organically and you will just want to stop and stare for a while.
