Official Battlefield 4 PC System Requirements Revealed, Can You Run It?

/ 5 years ago


Battlefield 4 is on the horizon, it’s so close now I can almost taste it! Now EA are teasing us even further by publishing the official game requirements, so now is the perfect time to make sure you’re up to the challenge of running the game, so lets take a look.

As you can see from the settings below the minimum is incredibly low, this is likely to do with the “console base level” that is set by 7 years + hardware used on the Xbox and PlayStation editions of the game, personally I’m still impressed that the 8800 range still has the guts to play games these days, but it was one of the greatest graphics cards ever created (for its time of course).

Of course “minimum” is such a vague and non helpful term, sure you can play on this hardware, but expect everything to look like crud, low res, nothing fancy and even still you could expect low frame rates and bottlenecks to be commonplace throughout, at least that’s my estimate. Recommended is a loose term also, while the specs given will run the game nicely I bet you’ll want a good bit more to push this up to higher resolution, with effects, anti aliasing, filtering and even more power needed for 3D and / or multiple displays. I would perceive the world “recommended” as more of a “happy medium”.

The GTX 660 and 7870 are great cards for the money, but they are mid market cards at best. A Phenom or FX-6xxx AMD CPU or Sandy Bridge Intel CPU wouldn’t set you back too much either and this is all pretty common hardware for your average PC gamer these days, so again, these all sound like modest estimates at best, especially given the lack of CPU clock speed requirements as this will massively effect the overall FPS you attain.

Battlefield 4 will be launching on October 29th this year and it would be a perfect game to upgrade your system for, are you ready for Battlefield 4? Let us know what setup you have in the comments section below.

    No problemo for me 🙂 Got a Sapphire 7990 and another MSI 7970 in CrossfireX so bring it on EA :)) Think 6GB should be enough even on triple monitor like i am using right now and by the end of the year gonna go 2x 7990 so quote “Somebody stop me !!!” :))

    I’ve got: Intel 2500K @ 4.3 Ghz, (2) GTX 580’s in SLI, and 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR 3 1600 Mhz. I think they will be ok but I’m curious why they say 3GB VRAM is recommended. I only have a single 1080P monitor.

    Why the Win 8 recommendation? 8.1 I could understand if it utilized DX 11.1. Does it?
    I could easily run this game maxed out @1080p and higher if the specs are to be believed but unfortunately/fortunately I have as much interest in the game and EA as I have in contracting a severe case of clap. It’s a non starter on my shopping list of games and if it doesn’t have a built in benchmark, it won’t be used as a test game for GFX cards I test either.
