This weekend the Activision Store was updated with official system requirements for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It seems that those specs weren't exactly final, though.

The Activision Store listing for Advanced Warfare has since been updated to remove most of the system requirements initially reported. Now the only requirements mentioned are Windows 7 or 8 64-Bit, and DirectX 11. The company suggested that Twitter that the system requirements they initially announced were wrong:
In case you're wondering, here are the minimum and recommended requirements initially listed on the Activision Store. While they may be changed, you might find them helpful as a ballpark estimate for what kind of computer you'll need to run the game:

Minimum
  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better.
  • RAM: 6 GB RAM
  • HDD: 40GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX GTS 450 / ATI® Radeon HD 5870 or better
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
Recommended
  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 – 680 @ 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • HDD: 40GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 @ 4GB
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games said that the game's engine was moslty built from scratch. The animation, physics and rendering are all new. I find it hard to believe that the game's engine will be "almost unrecognizable," though. Activision's in love with the COD formula so it's tough to imagine a new game in the series deviating too far from expectations.

The development team's hoping to make the performance of the PS4, PC and Xbox One versions as even as possible. Hoping and doing are two different things, though, so we'll see. I believe Sledgehammer when they say they want to make the different versions similar in quality, though. Lord knows they have the money and manpower to have a fighting chance. Also, Activision doesn't have much incentive to piss off one group of gamers or another.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will launch on all platforms on November 4th. You can get your first look at the game's multiplayer tomorrow afternoon.

Which version of Advance Warfare is going to look the best?
