Activision and Treyarch have revealed the PC specs for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and confirmed that it will require up to 250 GB of storage if you wish to run the latest Call of Duty with Ultra RTX settings. Fortunately, for those who don't need to run Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on the highest settings, it is possible to download Multiplayer only for 50 GB on Minimum Specs and all game modes for 175 GB on Recommended and Competitive Specs.
 
It's also important to note that these requirements are specifically for launch, and will hopefully go down as time goes by. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has also dealt with storage requirements of over 200 GB, but Infinity Ward recently released a patch that gives PC players an option to uninstall specific game modes to reduce its file size.
The full list of official specifications for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PC are as follows;

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Minimum Specifications

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit (SP1) or Windows 10 64-Bit (v.1803 or higher)

  • RAM: 8GB RAM
  • HDD (at launch): 50GB (MP only), 175GB (all game modes)

  • RAM: 16GB RAM

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PC will feature 4K graphics, uncapped framerate, RTX Shadows and Ambient Occlusion, NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex Technology, Ultrawide and Multi-Monitor support and much more. Additionally, developer Beenox worked closely with Treyarch and all other studios to "bring over 200 individual settings to fine tune the PC version of Black Ops Cold War."
To further explain, RTX Shadows and Ambient Occlusion will allow for more photo-realistic shadows, NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) will use "AI to construct sharp, hi-fidelity images all while rendered fewer pixels," and NVIDIA Reflex will "aid pros or pros-to-be in ensuring there is as little delay between their click or press and what happens on their screen as possible."
 
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on November 13, 2020.
 
Another great game inbound. 

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X,  M.2 2TB, 128GB DDR4  Crosshair VIII Hero, EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra,  Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF

    Nice. You can select which parts you want to install now if you have to make tough choices about what games to make room for on a pricey SSD.
    Fully loaded, it's taking up 120gb on my SSDs with the last minute patch, and 3 hours to go until it goes live, but it looks like you can ditch at least of that if you just want multiplayer and no 4k rez textures

    Can't imagine being able to run with just a single 1TB or 2TB drive anymore... What brands will help the game run fastest if storage files are 250gb?

    Files are no longer 250GB.  They reduced things to +/-120GB with everything installed including the high def texture pack (recommended).  Though you can pick and choose different pieces of the game to install/un-install.  It sits around 80GB without the high def pack.

    Is there a noticeable difference with the high def texture pack versus without?

    Yeah, not really at all. The worst part, is that Activision really never gets a handle on their cheating situation. Also, Cold War feels like a half finished game.

    Latest COD I played was MW3 I think. I skipped a lot of them even I'm a big fan of the single-player part. It's just not worth an initial price that they are asking for if you don't plan to spend hundreds of hours in multiplayer.
    Maybe one day I'll catch up.

    The game is garbage, just like pretty much every other modern Call of Duty game. They let cheaters essentially run unchecked like always. Activision is also trash, they removed their forums so no one can share their thoughts with Activision about how bad the game is. Essentially, they don't care about you as long as you bought their game. They don't want to hear ANY feedback.

    Geez, that's an insane amount of storage needed. I played the beta and agree that it's pretty much like every other CoD game. Just better graphics and looks like you can sort of do some damage to things like walls. Still like Battlefield games way better.
