Battlefield 3 System Requirements Revealed

Update: DICE has confirmed that these specs are infact FAKE.

Original Story: Battlefield 3 looks beautiful. The problem with beautiful looking games is they often require a fairly expensive gaming PC to run. So, what exactly does BF3 require from your rig? Check out the system requirements below:

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
  • Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Graphic card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card.
  • Graphics card memory: 512 MB
  • Hard drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Graphics card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850
  • Graphics card memory: 1 GB
  • Hard drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

It seems the specs needed are not too much more than for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. That is because the new Frostbite engine is a lot more streamlined than the previous one, despite having more features.

The game’s going to release on October 25. Watch the latest trailer over here.
