With the Call of Duty Vanguard release date set toward the end of 2021, on Nov. 5, players might be wondering if their PC hardware is up to par for the launch. Vanguard will feature exciting new gameplay experiences such as a new map and a fun Zombie theme that has never been seen before in Call of Duty history, but it'll also likely be the most technically demanding Call of Duty game yet.

The size of the game is reported to be anywhere around 70-100GB to download, and with such a hefty download requirement often comes heightened system requirements to match, especially as technology and graphics only improve with each new installment.
