Yesterday, Battlefield 5’s minimum system requirements went live on the game’s Origins page, only a week after its official announcement trailer dropped. This means that gamers won’t have to worry about waiting until the games October release date for details on how much they will have to update their systems for the anticipated sequel. But what does it mean for your system?
Fans of Battlefield 1, rejoice! Battlefield 5’s minimum PC specifications are precisely identical to those of its predecessor, Battlefield 1.
While this may be cause for concern from some gamers, who expect Battlefield games to push the expectations of a first-person-shooter’s graphical capabilities, it is easy to explain: both games are run on the Frostbite engine.
