Battlefield 5's Minimum PC Specs EA Shared Were Wrong

The specs listed on Origin were only placeholders.


The Battlefield V minimum PC specs that recently popped up on Origin are incorrect, according to EA community manager Dan Mitre. He wrote on Twitter that the specs listed on the website (which have since been removed) were only placeholders.

"Recently, incorrect minimum PC specs for Battlefield V were published as placeholders," Mitre said. "We haven't announced our minimum or recommended specs for Battlefield V yet. Stay tuned!"

A post on the Battlefield forums also alerted fans about the mistake. The message thanked fans for their patience and understanding over the mess-up. The listed requirements were pretty much the same as the ones for Battlefield 1, which seemed odd.

The Battlefield V reveal trailer showed some very nice-looking graphics. However, we don't know what kind of machine the footage was captured on or if it was actual gameplay or meant to be taken as representative of what Battlefield V will offer in terms of visuals. Whatever the case, it is expected that Battlefield V will be a demanding game if you want to play on high settings.

In other Battlefield V news, the World War II shooter will be playable at EA's E3 fan event, EA Play. Mitre also shared an image of how the event space is shaping up; you can see that picture above.

Battlefield V releases on October 19 on PC, PlayStation 4, 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.
