Update: Battlefield V’s PC requirements have yet to be announced
Last week, a list of minimum PC requirements for Battlefield V was posted and then quickly taken down from Electronic Arts’ Origin website, but not before they were spotted and shared with the internet at large. Well, as it turns out, those PC specs were inaccurate, and that comes from EA itself.
EA’s community manager Dan Mitre confirmed the inaccuracy of the PC specs via Twitter, saying that the specs had been briefly posted to EA Origin as placeholders. Mitre also reiterated that neither EA nor Battlefield V developer DICE have officially shared the actual PC specs for the game yet, and that fans should stay tuned for a future announcement.
There is a chance that EA and DICE might unveil the actual PC specs for Battlefield V during the upcoming EA Play event at this year’s E3 conference, but for now all fans can really do is wait and see. No matter what, Battlefield V will arrive on October 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Ever since last week’s Battlefield V unveiling event, Electronic Arts and DICE have been slowly teasing out new details about the game, like the game not having loot boxes of any kind. Now, the two studios have revealed something that should be of particular interest to PC gamers, namely, Battlefield V’s PC system requirements.
Earlier today, Battlefield V’s minimum PC system requirements were posted on EA’s Origin service before being quickly taken down (assumedly because there are still a few details that DICE is finalizing). However, they were up long enough for fans to spot them and share them with the greater Battlefield fan community. We don’t yet know what Battlefield V’s recommended PC specs are, but as long as your rig meets the below requirements, you should be able to at least run the game.
- Operating System: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10
- Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350
- Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- Graphics card (Nvidia): Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
- DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
- Online connection requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
- Hard-drive space: 50GB
The minimum requirements are surprisingly modest given how detailed Battlefield V’s reveal trailer was, but then again it’s unlikely that the game will look very pretty if your PC just barely passes the minimum requirements threshold. Still, if your goal is to merely run the game without an overt concern for pretty graphics, it looks like the bar you’ll need to clear is relatively low.
Battlefield V is set to launch on October 19 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
