While the PC versions of previous Call of Duty: Modern Warfare games havent sold as many copies as the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, the modern military shooters from developer Infinity Ward are still among the best selling PC games of the year when they are released. Thats likely to be the case when the latest installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, ships to stores or is made available for download on November 8.
Today on the games official message boards, Infinity Ward and publisher Activision talked more about the specific features for the PC port of Modern Warfare 3. Many gamers were upset with Infinity Ward two years ago when the developer announced that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would not have any dedicated server support. The outcry from PC gamers was massive and in short, Infinity Ward (along with the games co-developer Sledgehammer Games) have put dedicated server support back in for the PC edition of Modern Warfare 3.
The post also goes over even more about the PC version, including adding support for advanced graphics options such as Screen Space Ambient Occlusion. The post also included the minimal hardware requirements for Modern Warfare 3:
OS: Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
