The PC beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is almost here, but you’ll need a computer that’s up to the challenge if you want to check the game out early. Thankfully, Treyarch has announced the system requirements for the test and they aren’t too unreasonable.

Here are the minimum specs Treyarch suggests for checking out the Black Ops Cold War multiplayer beta and the developer’s recommended specs, which should let you play the game on slightly higher settings:

The beta will begin on Oct. 15 at 1 p.m. ET for any players that have pre-ordered the game. If you haven’t pre-ordered Black Ops Cold War, you can also get early access to the beta by watching Twitch streams that are labeled “Drops Enabled.” You’ll need to watch four hours of streams to get access to the beta. If you’d rather skip the pre-orders and the streaming, the beta will be open to all players starting on Oct. 17. Players can download the PC version of the beta from the Battle.Net client.

The beta is also playable on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4 version of the beta will be open to all players as soon as it begins on Oct. 15.
