Battlefield 1 PC Specifications

Battlefield 1 is certainly shaking up the franchise in a way that has me excited to play it again, even if the recent multiplayer beta reminded me just how much I loathe its particular brand of online shooting. Single-player is what I’m personally more excited about, second only to the visual splendour that DICE consistently delivers across the board. That’s even more true for PC, and Battlefield 1 has some surprising requirements in that department.

Surprising only because the minimum specifications, which DICE finally shared, seem incredibly low. To get Battlefield 1 up and running, you’ll need an i5-6600K or FX-6350 along with 8 GB of RAM and a 2 GB HD 7850 or GTX 660. If you want the more ideal experience, DICE recommended kicking things up to a GTX 1060 or RX480, both incredibly affordable cards on the market today.

You can check out the specifications for both Minimum and Recommended in full below.

Minimum Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5-6600K
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): Radeon HD 7850 2 GB
  • Graphics card (Nvidia): GeForce GTX 660 2 GB
  • DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 50 GB

Recommended Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350 Wraith
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7-4790 or equivalent
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): Radeon RX 480 4 GB
  • Graphics card (Nvidia): GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB

The specifications follow a host of changes DICE is planning to implement based on beta feedback, most notably around its Conquest mode. DICE trialled the mode with kills not counting towards the team life ticker, a change players immediately revolted against. They’ve promised to reinstate it for launch, as well as some balancing to the game’s vehicles and surprisingly strong horses.

It’s all in line with release too, as Battlefield 1 gears up to take the stage next month.

  1. Well, if they had developed this Battlefield in the year 1913, my rig MIGHT have been ready…

      Yeah paying R1100 for a game is really too much and then the Season Pass is another R800…. Paying nearly R2000 to get the full experience of the game is just too much for most South Africans i believe.

        Very few gaming companies will get R1100 out of me.
        EA is not one of them.

        Yeah I felt like I got burned with The Division. I threw down for the Season Pass and got some serious hours in with friends, completing the main and side quests then started venturing into The Dark Zone… that lasted 3 days before the frustration got the better of me and that Season Pass became a complete waste. Never again.

    I like how the minimum CPU needed is an Intel i5-6600k and the recommended an Intel i7-4790. For once they didn’t say the recommended is a brand new i7-6700k (yes i know the 4790 is better than the 6700k).

      My i5-3570k starting to a feel a bit dated look at those recommended specs :/

        I’m still rocking a i5-2500 (non k) Sandy. You’re hardly as outdated as I am XD

          Ye just did a bit of reading now and seems like if I water cool my CPU and OC to around 4Ghz it should be good to go for a long time still which is good to hear

        I OCed my 3570k to 4.1 paired it with a RX480 and i haven’t come across a game that i cant run at max yet

    Starting to run my i5 3340 and GTX 960 thin end of this year over to next year, here’s hoping AMD safe’s us.

    Would love to see EA’s pre-order numbers since the price increase. Did the sheep still follow blindly?

    I just hope you not going to do the review for this game . . . such fps bias

    Hoping AMD persuade EA into adding Vulkan support.
