There are several different specifications listed for the PC version of Modern Warfare. The most immediately important one is space. The game’s website recommends you have 175GB (!) of hard drive space free. The website says that this amount is intended to give you some extra room for “post-launch content” so the download probably isn’t quite this bit, but it’s still a pretty monumental amount of space. For a closer look at all the game’s system requirements you can find them below.
