We have found that the PC system requirements recommended by companies to play their game can, at the best of times, be arbitrary as there is no set standard to determine what classifies as playable at an acceptable level.

Call Of Duty Cold War Single Player
Playing single player can become more complex when trying to decide where performance and quality meet. We can say first hand that COD Cold War has very good optimisation on all of their platforms and it should be easy for even a beginner gaming PC to run it well enough. Usually the recommendation here would be to get slightly higher fps during fights than what your monitor can output, such as 60fps.
In doing so you shouldn’t see too many dips in FPS while enjoying the best image quality your PC has to offer.
Call Of Duty Cold War Zombies
COD zombies has been apart of the franchse since as early as 2008 and there has been many iterations of this idea, all with wide spread love and criticism.
Needless to say the 2020 cold war zombies doesn’t disapoint with old school style wave survival to mini missions within for those who want more of a challange.
While not for everyone, it is nice to know there is still effort going into a game style that has been built and improved for over 12 years.
