Battlefield 1 PC requirements released!

The Battlefield 1 PC system requirements are out, and as you’ll see there quite demanding.

battlefield-1-1BF1 uses DICE’s gaming engine called Frostbite, DICE’s DOT Per-Olof Romell said “BF1 uses the most optimized version of the Frostbite engine yet, but is still an intensive game”. The fact that the min CPU is a Core i5 6600K (which my pc has). EA also announced that they have made some changes coming to BF1 as a result of the feedback from the open beta.

So let’s have have a look, and in the words of Sam Jackson “hold onto your butts”!

The minimum spec:

  • 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

The recommended spec:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX 8350 Wraith
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 4790 or equivalent
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • Graphics card (Nvidia): Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
  • DirectX: 11.1 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Available Disk Space: 50GB

In a separate blog post, EA said that as a result of feedback from the open beta, the Conquest mode is being changed so that capturing objectives and scoring kills will both contribute to the final score of a match, and the Rush game mode is being added.

“We’re also looking into balancing other elements, including the weapons and vehicles. The Light Tank, which is a bit too effective in the Open Beta, will definitely receive some work, and we agree that Horses can take a few too many rounds at the moment,” lead world designer

Daniel Berlin explained. “We’ve also learned through the Beta that you guys need more tools to deal with vehicles earlier, which we’ll definitely look into (including a Gadget for the Support class which should help neutralize powerful vehicles).”

The specs and demands on the CPU seems to be increased, it could be down to the more complex systems involved,

My PC spec are:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ RX 480 8GB
  • Monitor: ultra wide 3440 x 1440 (freesync)

Hopefully i will be able to run this at my screen Res and 70  fps, Battlefield 1 will be out on October 21.
