Yesterday, many media outlets reported about the system requirements of Battlefield V and it’s congruence with Battlefield 1’s requirements. Today however, EA has seemingly removed the system requirements from their official store page and replaced it with a ‘Coming Soon’ tag.
It was already a surprise that the system requirements had been revealed 5 months prior to the release. Moreover, many people pointed out that the system requirements were exactly the same as Battlefield 1 and it could be an error from EA’s side. The highly controversial Star Wars Battlefront II had the same configurations as well, so it could just be that they have temporarily removed it for further tweaks.
The requirements WERE as follows:
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
- Processor: AMD FX-6350 or Intel Core i5 6600K
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
- DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
- Online Connection Requirements: 512 Kbps or faster Internet connection
- Hard drive free space: 50GB for installation
The recommended system requirements weren’t revealed and rightly so, considering that they are partnering with Nvidia who love their Frame Rate killing graphics tech. Don’t be surprised if the recommended system requirements are a little too overboard; I am sure Nvidia is planning to put their hair tech in the game.
I don’t think the minimum system requirements will increase though, because at the end of the day the game has to run on the OG Potatostation and Xbone, so the PC potato race can relax and wait for the game to release.
