Battlefield 2042 PC Requirements: Can You Run DICE's Latest Shooter?

Battlefield 2042 is looking to be the biggest game in the franchise, giving us a futuristic setting and promising cross-play between 128 players on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X. Along with all kinds of graphical upgrades, it's meant a lot of people are wondering what the game's PC specs and system requirements are.

There's a whole lot of extra graphical firepower needed for Battlefield 2042. In addition to dynamic weather events that can cause sandstorms and typhoons, EA and Ripple Effect have also revealed Battlefield Portal, which lets players make their own custom games with assets from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3.

Here's all we know, and we'll keep updating this as we hear more.

It's worth stressing that at present, the PC requirements haven't been made official by DICE. However, EA recently sent out emails about the Battlefield 2042 technical playtest and gave requirements for minimum and recommended specs.

Keep in mind that Battlefield 2042 is coming out in October so these aren't the PC specs for the final game, at least not yet. However, the Battlefield technical playtest is the closest we've gotten to getting those official requirements and we wouldn't be surprised if the official instructions end up being similar.

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
  • Memory: 8GB

While prior games have weighed in at around 50 - 60GB in terms of install size, we're expecting this to jump up with Battlefield 2042, since we expect higher-resolution textures and more.
