UPDATE: Despite EA and DICE putting up the Battlefield V minimum system requirements on the Origin store a fortnight ago, EA community manager Dan Mitre has since confirmed these specs were put up erroneously.
According to Mitre, the system requirements for Battlefield V were published as a placeholder, which explains why they were pretty much identical to Battlefield 1's minimum specs.
"Recently, incorrect minimum PC specs for #Battlefield V were published as placeholders," explained Mitre. "We haven’t announced our minimum or recommended specs for Battlefield V yet. Stay tuned!"
We'll have to wait a little longer to get our hands on the official Battlefield V PC system specs then, although we have an inkling they're not going to change drastically. A slight increase seems likely, but nothing too huge.
Original Story: 24-May-2018 Battlefield V Minimum System Requirements and Nvidia GeForce Partnership Revealed
Battlefield 5 was revealed yesterday evening, and despite being five months away from release, DICE has kindly revealed the minimum PC specs for Battlefield V. As per usual, BFV is running on Frostbite, bringing the same large-scale warfare and chaotic destruction we saw in Battlefield 1. Do you need to upgrade your PC to run Battlefield V though? Let's find out.
Battlefield V Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
- RAM: 8 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
- GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- HDD: 50GB Available Hard Drive Space
- API: DirectX 11
The minimum system requirements for Battlefield V are actually identical to the minimum spec for Battlefield 1. Battlefield is typically quite CPU-intensive which is why we see the Core i5-6600K suggests as the minimum CPU. In BF1 you could actually get away with a much weaker CPU, although it will end up a significant bottleneck if you're targeting high frame rates. Considering the specs are identical though, we expect the visuals and performance of Battlefield V to be pretty much on par with Battlefield 1.
Along with the specs, we also got news of a partnership with Nvidia to optimise performance for GeForce graphics cards.
"With Battlefield V, we wanted to align with a partner who shares our passion for PC gaming," said DICE. "By combining our talented development team with NVIDIA’s advanced gaming technologies and robust GeForce PC gaming platform, we’re creating the most physical, immersive, and visually-striking way to experience Battlefield V."
Nvidia is obviously rubbing its hands together with glee at this deal, issuing a statement saying: "As the PC platform, we’re helping the Battlefield V development team create the definitive PC experience. NVIDIA engineers are working with the Battlefield V developers at DICE to bring the best aspects of the GeForce gaming platform to bear for PC gamers, meaning GeForce Experience will deliver Game Ready drivers, Optimal Playable settings, and other NVIDIA-platform features for Battlefield V. In addition, we are working on integrating cutting-edge technologies, optimizing performance, and creating the definitive PC experience."
