[UPDATE] EA has now admitted that these listed requirements are wrong.
Battlefield V is the much anticipated new entry in the series, and now PC players have an idea of how the game will run on their machines when it releases in October. In short, if you were able to play Battlefield 1 on your PC, you're in good shape; the minimum system requirements appear to be the same for both games.
The minimum system requirements originally appeared on Origin. They have since been pulled from the website, so it's unclear if there will still be changes made. Here are the system requirements as they were posted on May 29:
- OS: 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
It's still early, but we're starting to get a look at Battlefield V's graphics, thanks to a beautiful (and intense) reveal trailer that showcases gameplay in the World War II setting. While it's expected more details will be released at E3 in June, developer DICE has already shared many of the ways the game will differ from past entries in the series; notably, with its business plan. Instead of selling a Premium Pass for new content, DLC like maps and weapons will be available through free updates.
There are some big changes coming to gameplay, too. Everyone will be able to build in the game (although engineers will do it quicker), and there are also changes to health regeneration, Spotting, and character customization. You'll also be able to play as a woman in multiplayer, a move that caused controversy among some players and resulted in the head of DICE making a clear statement that "player choice and female playable characters are here to stay."
Battlefield V releases on October 19 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, although there are several ways to try the game early. For more news, including the latest updates on the game from E3, follow GameSpot's full coverage of Battlefield V.
