DICE has kept everyone waiting for a long time, but finally we can now bring you the official recommended specs for Battlefield 4, ahead of the official launch on October 29. You may be surprised about this, but the developer is actually recommending everyone to have Windows 8 running in order to enjoy the game as intended.
Some of you may be content with trying to run Battlefield 4 with the current specs that your system is running, but others will now be frantically racing to upgrade in order to comply with what DICE are recommending for the highly anticipated shooter.
As expected, Battlefield 4 is not going to run on any weak or outdated hardware. Aside from a 64-bit version of Windows 8, DICE also recommends either a AMD six-core processor, or an Intel quad-core setup. There are two recommended graphics set up as well, these being an AMD Radeon HD 7870 or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660.
As for memory, you will want to have at the very least a system with 8GB of RAM and 3GB of dedicated graphics memory. If you have all of the above, you can look forward to playing Battlefield just the way you have been witnessing in the PC gameplay trailers – at a stunning 60 frames per second.
Failure to match the recommended specs above though and you may have to endure playing Battlefield 4 at a lower frame rate and a decrease in graphical quality.
With that in mind, give us your reaction to the official recommended specs for Battlefield 4. Do you have a system in your home that can easily match what DICE is asking, or are you going to struggle?
