Battlefield Hardline PC requirements confirmed

4GB RAM! 60GB hard-drive space! DX11!

EA has confirmed the Battlefield Hardline PC requirements in a post on Origin.

Let's start with the minimum specifications you need to run Visceral's first-person cops vs. criminals shooter spin-off.

Minimum:

  • OS: WINDOWS VISTA SP2 64-BIT (with KB971512 Update)
  • PROCESSOR: Athlon II / Phenom II 2.8 GHz, Intel Core i3 / i5 2.4GHz
  • MEMORY: 4GB RAM
  • GRAPHICS CARD: ATI Radeon HD 5770 (1GB), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB)
  • HARD-DRIVE: 60GB
  • DIRECTX 11

Now on to the recommended specifications.

Recommended:

  • OS: WINDOWS 8 64-BIT (with KB971512 Update)
  • CPU: INTEL QUAD-CORE CPU, AMD SIX-CORE CPU
  • MEMORY: 8GB RAM
  • GRAPHICS CARD: AMD Radeon R9 290, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
  • GRAPHICS MEMORY: 3GB
  • HARD DRIVE: 60GB
  • DIRECTX 11

EA noted that those using machines with 4GB of RAM or less may experience issues with the Battlefield Hardline open beta, as gameplay performance for lower-end PCs is still being optimised. EA suggested closing all other applications while playing the game.

Digital Foundry just published its hands-on with the Battlefield Hardline PC beta, which begins today.
