The lights are on
Just taking one look of the graphical prowess of the
Battlefield 4 footage left PC fans wondering what it would take to run it in
all its glory. Dice finally answered the pervasive question, confirming the
requirements in an easy-to-read post, as seen below.
The minimum requirements are pretty lenient, but the
recommended requirements are beefy.
While 4GB of memory gets you by, the recommendation is double at 8 GB.
Graphics memory tells a similar story; it runs on 512 MB, but to get the full
experience you need 3 GB. Thankfully, the minimum processor has been out for
few years now. That doesn't mean you shouldn't keep your eye on a Haswell i5 to
get the most from Battlefield 4, though.
Our TakeThe specs pretty much conclude that you won't be running
this game on your low end laptop, and you'll need a dedicated gaming rig. This
shouldn't really come as a surprise. The minimum requirements don't expect that
much from your PC, but that doesn't mean it'll look all that pretty running on
it. This is game that has an actual
physics engine that covers the destruction of buildings, so I'm not all that
surprised about the recommended requirements.
