Battlefield 4 System Requirements Leaked, Possible Placeholder


Rumor has it that Ubisoft’s Online Store, UPlay, knows the system requirements of EA’s eagerly awaited, “Battlefield 4″. This came as quite the surprise to Redditor Offspring, listed as an EA employee/Origin producer, who said ”I don’t believe the final system requirements have been decided yet, and this looks a lot like placeholder system requirements from BF3 with a couple of tweaks. I know everyone’s excited for BF4 news, but I wouldn’t trust an Ubisoft page with system requirements for it just yet”.

I can see where his doubt comes from when you compare the system requirements posted on Ubisoft, to the current Alpha build requirements.

Ubisoft’s Battlefield 4 system requirements were listed as such:


  • OS: Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) 32-bit
  • Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2 2.7 GHz)
  • Memory: 2 GB System RAM
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB
  • Video Card:DirectX 10.1 compatible with 512 MB RAM
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible


  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad-core CPU
  • Memory: 4 GB
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 11 compatible with 1024 MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or ATI Radeon 6950)
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible

Looking at the current BF4 Alpha trial System Requirements we see the following:

  • OS: Vista SP2, Win7 64 bit (Win 8 and 32 bit not supported)
  • Dx10 or Dx 11 GPU with 1+GB of RAM, Dx 11 highly recommended
  • 25GB HDD free space required
  • Latest Origin version required

It would seem that the Alpha requires an extra 5GB of HDD than the finished product, which is kind of impressive in it’s own right, not to mention the fact that if you have Win8 OS, you apparently can’t play the finished product. I’m no tech junkie, but so far, I’m inclined to agree with Redditor Offspring.

Ubisoft have since removed the posting from their site.
