The system requirements for the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have been announced. As you might expect, they don't call for the same level of hardware as this year's brand new Call of Duty game, Infinite Warfare.

Like Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered requires a 64-bit operating system (Windows 7 or newer), but from there it asks for much less from your computer. You'll need only an Intel Core i3-530 or AMD Phenom II X4 810, 6 GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GTS 450 or AMD HD 7850 with 1 GB of VRAM.

You'll need at least 55 GB of free hard drive space to go along with that, and potentially more as updates and new content is released. We already know six more maps are set to be released later this year.

This is all less taxing than Infinite Warfare, which also doesn't go too wild with its system requirements (Core i3-3225, 8 GB RAM, and a 2 GB GTX 660/HD 7850).

It is fun, however, to look at what the original version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare called for back in 2007. You could be running Windows XP with 512 MB of RAM (or 768 MB if you went wild and were using Vista), a Pentium 4, and an Nvidia GeForce 6600 or ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (yes, ATI, not AMD). Oh, and you'd need a whopping 8 GB of free space, which is an amount you might find insulting if you were now given a promotional thumb drive of that size.

Modern Warfare Remastered launches alongside Infinite Warfare on November 9. It's only available with premium versions of that game; for the time being, it won't be offered as a standalone title.
