Your PC needs to be this fat for Battlefield Hardline’s system requirements

2 min read


Can your PC handle Battlefield Hardline? You have the right to remain silent if you do not wish to answer that question. Back when Battlefield Hardline was announced last year, developer Visceral explained that the game would have PC specs that were more or less in line with the previous Battlefield release. And those specs most certainly are. But there’s just one catch here: You’re going to need to be running a 64 bit version of your favourite Windows operating system before you can jump on into the game.

According to Origin, here’s what you’ll need at the very least to play the final version of the game when it releases:


  • OS: Windows Vista SP2 64-bit (with KB971512 Update)
  • CPU: Athlon II/Phenom II 2.8 GHz, Intel Core i3/i5 2.4GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770 (1 GB), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB)
  • HDD: 60 GB
  • Direct X 11

And if the specs above are worthy of a scoff (to the max), here are the recommended settings:


  • OS: Windows 8 64-bit (with KB971512 Update)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: AMD Radeon R9 290, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
  • GPU memory: 3 GB
  • HDD: 60 GB
  • DirectX 11

If you’re playing on console, you’ll need the following:


  • Really thick skin, because PC gamers are a bunch of meanies. Remember, sticks and stones may break your bones, but words…will hurt even more

And of course, the game is going to look even spiffier than usual, according to EA. Here’s a fresh reel of hyperbole:

Not too bad then. So you reckon your PC is capable of running the game? Go on, gloat. That’s what these pages are meant for. You have our permission to do so.
