Electronic Arts is working intensively on a new title that will appear on October 18. However, the chosen ones can already take part in closed alpha Battlefield V tests, which started a few days ago. On their occasion, we learned the approximate hardware requirements of the game.

The ongoing Alpha Battlefield V tests are aimed at capturing bugs that may have a negative impact on the fun of the network game. That’s why the studio decided to carry out tests, which were divided into two categories: game tests and technical tests. The first of them consist in checking aspects of the game, such as the balance of weapons and characters, or new systems of exhaustion and immersion. The studio is keen to ensure that the Battlefield V game is fair and provides satisfaction to experienced players as well. Technical tests will allow DICE to check how Battlefield V servers perform during the real game and what the quality of network connections looks like.

The Battlefield V hardware requirements are similar to Battlefield 1

Minimum requirements:

  • Operating System: 64-bit Windows 7,  Windows 8.1 or Windows 10
