Battlefield 2042

Battlefield has always been one of EA’s premier franchise and the games have always been technical powerhouses that truly push the boundaries of what’s possible in video games. PC gamers love a game that can help identify the outer limits of their rigs but it being a cross-gen title, Battlefield 2042 might not be it.

The PC System Requirements for Battlefield 2042 found in the invites for EA’s upcoming play test. The minimum system requirements, as expected, are lower than one might expect from such a massive game – but that is purely to optimize the game for last-gen consoles as well.

The technical play test will be available between August 12 and August 15. Testing will be able to accomdate a “few thousand” participants. An open beta is also scheduled for September, which cannot come quickly for Battlefield fans.

However, next-gen consoles will have distinct features exclusive to them such as 128-player lobbies in multiplayer. Along with that, the game will also support Nvidia DLSS and Ray-Tracing.

From the looks of things, it seems like even mid-tier laptops and PCs might just be able to run Battlefield 2042 at Low to Medium settings. For the optimal results, of course, players will have to invest in some upgrades.

While more expensive and powerful setups will be able to take advantage of technology such as Ray-Tracing, the experience shouldn’t be all that dramatically different. Battefield 2042 looks good so far – and the game has a ton of fans rooting for it as many players in the community have responded positively to DICE’s direction with the new game.
