Modern Warfare 3 PC Specs Revealed
Infinity Ward‘s community strategist, Robert Bowling, took to the forums and compiled a list of answers important for any Modern Warfare 3 PC player. There he described facts of dedicated servers, remote controlling for servers, and what kind of settings can be tweaked, among other things.
Long story short, if your rig can run contemporary PC games you’ll have no problem running MW3. Hopefully, there won’t be anything close to the problems experienced by the last highly-touted PC shooter RAGE on day one, problems that have started to be fixed.
In terms of the online side dedicated servers will be present, but only allow unranked play. Steam will be fully integrated into Modern Warfare 3 and will be utilized for achievements, friends list, join-in-session play, and as a server browser.
