Fortunately, ahead of the PC Beta – which is starting on September 22 – the system requirements for the game have been revealed. With details about both minimum and recommended requirements listed, you should have a good idea of whether or not your PC can handle it.

Of course, you’ll need to know how to get full access to the MW2 Beta in order to try the game before it launches later this year. So, make sure you’ve got everything in order before hopping in.

Of course, if you are hoping to crank MW2’s visuals up to the max and are expecting to play at 60fps, you’ll likely want better hardware than what is being suggested here.

It is also worth keeping in mind that the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta requires a constant internet connection and a DirectX 12 compatible system. You must also have a mobile number connected to your Battle.net or Steam account in order to access the Beta.

These are all of the recommended system requirements you’ll need in order to play the Modern Warfare 2 Beta:

Once again, you will need a constant internet connection, DirectX 12 compatible system, and a mobile number connected to your Battle.net or Steam account in order to access the Beta.

It is worth noting that the small storage space requirement is likely due to it being the Beta. So, expect a much higher install size for the full Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 game on PC.

Now that you know the PC system requirements for Modern Warfare 2’s Beta, you should make sure to pre-load the Beta before it goes live!

However, before jumping into the MW2 PC Beta, pick your platform wisely and decide whether to buy Modern Warfare 2 on Steam or Battle.net.
