The upcoming Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond requires a beefy rig to play, including an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080, an Intel Core i7-9700K, and at least 16 GB of RAM. However, the most insane spec needed to run the game is a minimum of 170 GB of SSD storage.

There seems to be a new trend in the world of AAA games: increasing storage space requirements. While it’s not unusual for newer games to require more hard drive space, there has been a spike in storage requirements with newer games demanding north of 100 GB of free space. 

However, the upcoming Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond may take the cake for the highest amount of hard drive space needed. Just to download, unpack, and install the game, users will need more than 340 GB of free storage, according to the game’s minimum specifications. 

Once the game is installed, it will occupy over 170 GB. This is primarily due to the abundance of cinematics tied to the 50+ missions in the campaign and the copious amounts of historical documentary footage. 

Other minimum specifications, as reported by Polygon and the game’s developer, include: 

As the game’s developer noted on Reddit, gamers should “make sure [they] use an SSD to play this game.”

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond releases on Oculus Rift and Steam (for other VR headsets) on December 11. 

What do you think of Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond’s high system requirements? Let us know in the comments.

I've been a computer geek my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a database administrator. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news and reviews.
