Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s release is here, and you may be wondering if your PC can handle the lift. Activision has released its minimum and recommended specs through its official support site so you can check before dropping in on the action.

The specs are almost identical to those of the Black Ops 4 beta, with a few notable differences that actually make it easier to handle. The full game allows for an Intel Core i3 instead of an i5 in the minimum specs, and an i5 instead of an i7 in the recommended specs. So overall, you actually need a slightly less beefy machine to handle the full game. And naturally, you need more hard drive space–80 GB instead of the 25 taken up by the beta.

If you’re playing on consoles, meanwhile, you’ll need to download a sizable day-one patch before you can begin playing. You’ll be able to jump into the new battle royale mode, Blackout, once the game is about 30% installed, but it’ll be a longer wait before multiplayer and Zombies are ready to go.
