Now that the game’s open beta has kicked off in earnest, EA has unveiled the PC requirements for Battlefield: Hardline.
Releasing the stats via the company’s digital storefront, Origin, the information packet details the minimum and recommended specs you’ll need to run Visceral Games’ upcoming crime caper. And you can check out the list below to see whether your rig is up to the task.
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
Now on to the recommended specifications.
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
Weighing in at 60GB, the PC version of Battlefield: Hardline is certainly packing a lot of heat — pretty appropriate for a cops and robbers set-up, mind you. In the post, EA also noted that those players who are attempting to play the game’s beta on hardware with 4GB RAM or less may encounter performance issues when playing online, as Hardline is yet to be optimized for lower performing PCs.
Running from February 3 through to February 8, the bout of testing will act as the final performance metric for Visceral before the title’s release next month. In it, fans can put a variety of game modes to the test, including the novel Hotwire mode. Forcing players to hijack cars and evade the opposing team, Hotwire is as fast as it is furious, and one that will no doubt pique the curiosity of Battlefield‘s existing fanbase come March.
Battlefield: Hardline will make its bow across consoles and PC on March 17.
