Some players will soon have an opportunity to try Battlefield V, as EA is set to kick off a special invite-only closed alpha for the game on PC this Thursday, June 28. Ahead of the test, the publisher has shared all the details fans will need to know in order to participate, including what type of rig they'll need to run the alpha.

On the official Battlefield website, EA has laid out the minimum and recommended specs for the Battlefield V closed alpha. The publisher notes that these specs are strictly for the alpha and won't necessarily apply to the final game, but they give some indication of the kind of hardware players can expect to need in order to run the game on PC. You can find the specs below.

What's notable is that the minimum specs are very similar to the ones that popped up on Origin. EA would later issue a statement that the specs were incorrect, but the only real difference between them is the type of AMD processor players will need to run the test. However, as EA said, these specs aren't necessarily indicative of the hardware that will be needed to play the full game when it launches later this year.

As previously mentioned, the Battlefield V closed alpha is only open to those who receive an invitation, which are being distributed to a "small group" of Battlefield players. The closed alpha includes daily challenges and gives players a chance to try out two modes, Conquest and Grand Operation Fall of Norway--although it doesn't feature the game's announced battle royale mode.

Battlefield V releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19. Those who purchase the Deluxe edition, however, will get access to it several days early, on October 16. You can find more details about the game's various editions in our Battlefield V pre-order guide.
