The graphical giant, Battlefield 4 is one of the most anticipated titles appearing this fall, alongside Grand Theft Auto V, Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag. All of these titles will be hitting current and next gen consoles, along with PC.

If you want to know how a next gen console game will look on your PC, you might need to make sure your hardware is up to date, as we find out in our Battlefield 4 System Requirements...

Battlefield 4 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista 32bit (With KB971512 Platform Update)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or AMD Athlon X2 5600+

RAM: 4GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 512MB Graphics Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or AMD Radeon HD 3870

DX: DirectX 10

HDD: 30 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Battlefield 4 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz or AMD Phenom II X6 1055T

RAM: 8GB System Memory

GPU RAM: 3GB Graphics Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or ATI Radeon HD 7870

 

Well, we always knew that Battlefield 4 was going to fill your hard drive, but that's a really hefty system you'll need to run the game at higher settings! Six Core CPU's, 3GB of Graphics Memory; you'll really have room to stretch your rig if you want to running the Frostbite 3 Engine.

Battlefield 4 will surely be optimised pretty well, as it still has to run on current gen consoles, although several features such as second screen functionality are limited to the next gen consoles. The Minimum BF4 System Requirements reflect the current generation, still holding the 8800 as the benchmark, and using a reasonable dual core that most machines will have.

Overall, the Battlefield 4 System Requirements look about as we expected, which means most people will be able to get straight into the game - with all the huge battles, incredible weapon customisation, and dynamic levels than you can shake a stick at!

Check to see if your PC can run BF4 system requirements

Are you guys getting the game on the current gen consoles, or your faithful PC? What do you think of the Battlefield 4 System Requirements? Tell us below!

Until now, the top Battlefield game. has the most excellent expansions of any game. Better maps, better vehicles, better weapons, and a smoother overall playing experience. It's too bad that there are a lot of whiny people in the lobby right now who only take off a few guns during matches because they probably aren't the best gamers and don't have much to offer others. Therefore, if you run your own servers and set them up properly, you'll have a packed lobby. Check out the download page here.

The Battlefield game that is debatably best to date. I occasionally still play this game, and the servers still appear to be populated by a devoted (albeit smaller) fan base. Given that the multiplayer component of this game accounts for over 90% of the average player's playtime, you might want to do some research before purchasing it to determine if the servers are still operational.

forgot to mention that about 144p+ with something like 4-8X MSAA will require something near 3GBVRAM..beacsue Crysis 3 on 1600p at 8xMSAA with V.High settings requires about 2700MB VRAM..so it will be near that point too..:D

it will not affect at your res or any res upto and including 1200p and you will most likely be able to play at high with some settings like and shadows and post-processing on medium..for35+fps..

your CPU is VERY strong, more than enough for this game, and it has 4 more threads (hyperthreading) BF3 utilised the threads, so basically according to BF you have 8 cores. you'll be able to ultra @1080p
