The lights are on
For those wondering if their rig can handle the game, EA has released the official requirements.
EA released these requirements in an FAQ for the game's beta, which runs from September 29 to October 10 (on all platforms). Those who've pre-ordered the game through EA's Origin service or bought the limited edition Medal of Honor game will actually get to start on September 27.
Battlefield 3 comes out for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 25.
