The 'Battlefield 2042' PC Requirements Are Actually Pretty Reasonable

The open beta for Battlefield 2042 is imminent so here are the system requirements for the game - before you start holding your breath, they're actually alright.

Arriving for PC, last-gen and new-gen consoles on October 22nd, Battlefield 2042 chops and changes the standard for the series. Firstly, it doesn't offer a single-player campaign because developer DICE wanted to "lean into what it does best." However, those who want to fly solo won't be left by the wayside.

A single-player mode is possible as there are matches that can be populated with bots, and for the players who hanker after a story to follow, that will come in the game's battle pass. The setting itself is a transformed Earth after extreme weather events and ensuing resource conflicts devolve the world's powers into two remaining titans - the United States and Russia.

The open beta begins on October 6th and ends on October 9th for those who've pre-ordered the game or own a membership to EA Play. The map is Orbital and will feature the classic Conquest mode with Specialists Webster Mackay, Maria Falck, Pyotr "Boris" Guskovsky and Wikus "Casper" Van Daele.

It's all well and good reading about the beta, but the crucial part is whether or not your machine will be able to run Battlefield 2042. With no more ado, here are the minimum specs for PC:
