Official Battlefield 3 PC requirements revealed ‒ will your rig run?

Written by: / / No Comments

Earlier this year, a reported list of system requirements made its way out into the wild to help prospective PC gamers know what kind of ‘rig’ they would need to play Battlefield 3, a game that looks to be an incredible visual tour de force capable of bringing any said ‘rig’ to its knees.

It seems as though that initially revealed list (released by GameStop) was a few decimals off for a couple different PC components ‒ the official list of system requirements from EA (thanks to the recent Battlefield 3 beta date announcement) has exposed the need for a bit of a beefier gaming machine than previously thought.

Here they are:
