Battlefield 1 PC System Requirements Revealed

See if your PC is ready to roll into battle in BF1.

The PC system requirements for DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 1 were officially announced on the Battlefield website this week. The relatively high specs of Battlefield 1 should come as no surprise for anyone who is familiar with the demanding graphics of this game series, especially since Battlefield 1 will be running on the “most optimized” version of the Frostbite engine yet, according to DICE Director of Technology, Per-Olof Romell. Additionally, Romell claims that improvements to the network code and servers makes Battlefield 1 “the most solid Battlefield ever.”  We’ve listed the system requirements below. 

Minimum PC Specs:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350

Recommended PC Specs:

In another blog post on the Battlefield website, Lead World Designer Daniel Berlin explains that the developers will be making changes to the ticket system for Conquest mode, in response to feedback from the open beta test. “Capturing the objectives AND getting kills will both contribute towards the final score of a Conquest match.” Berlin also says in the blog post that the Rush game mode will be making a return as well.  This seems like the way it should have been anyway. Regardless, it’s still nice to know that the developers have been fairly responsive to player criticisms and feedback overall. 

Several balance fixes were also mentioned, including changes to the Light Tank, which proved to be “a bit too effective in the Open Beta,” as well as a horse nerf. The Support class will be getting a new Gadget as well that will help take down powerful vehicles more effectively. 

Battlefield 1 is scheduled to launch on October 21st. Players who own the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition will receive early access to the full game on October 18th. Let us know if your PC is ready to handle the gritty WWI action of Battlefield 1!

At my last save point, I left off in a massive open world where I write about video games and make content for the interwebs. For me, video games are all about the strength of the experience. Give me good narratives, unique mechanics, competitive strategy, or at the very least, distract me with cats.
