Battlefield 2042’s minimum and recommended system requirements have been revealed. If you’re aiming to play on PC, here’s everything there is to know ahead of the October launch.

With Battlefield 2042, EA is pushing the popular FPS franchise to new heights. Through bigger player counts and more expansive maps, technical ambition is through the roof.

As a result, the upcoming BF title is set to launch on new-gen hardware. This is where players will really be able to push the game, while last-gen consoles will be restricted to smaller maps and lobby sizes. Meanwhile, for those on PC, the world is your oyster. Regardless of your build, a lengthy list of options allows you to fine-tune the experience to fit your gaming rig.
