Battlefield 1 minimum and recommended specifications from developers DICE is out and it suggests that people should have a monster PC in order to run the game at its highest settings.
The PC gaming community is already rife with comments and feels EA, DICE have cheated them one more time by poorly optimizing the game. However, from the developers’ perspective this is one of the most optimized games built on the newly developed Frostbite engine. The team claimed that they have created a futuristic game that is extremely demanding and in order to enjoy it at its optimal setting, you require an i7 4790 processor!
Probably, the next thing developers would ask players to have is a 4K monitor and 100 MBPS connection as recommended specifications to run a game. Battlefield 1 open beta was one of the most successful titles in recent times. It witnessed over 13 million players who participated in the beta and experienced the World War I title in all its glory. It did run well for most even though majority of them never had the recommended specifications as suggested by DICE.
According to DICE, the minimum specs to run Battlefield 1 includes a Windows 7,8 or 10 OS, i5 6600k or AMD FX 6350 processor with 8 GB RAM. Suggested graphic cards are AMD Radeon HD 7850 or the Geforce GTX 660 with a 512 kbps or higher internet connection. We are baffled by their suggested internet speed because no multiplayer game is going to run without heavy lag on such speeds but the developers still choose to keep at least one factor at its lowest point, the suggested net speed.
For optimal experience, Battlefield 1 needs Windows 10 64-bit with AMD FX 8350 or i7 4790 processor, 16 GB of RAM, AMD Radeon RX 480 or Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 3 GB graphics card. The suggested minimum internet speed is the same and the game requires about 50 gigabytes of hard disk space to install.
Responding to suggestions made by players during the open beta, EA and DICE has decided to bring the Rush mode back in. Conquest mode has undergone some changes as it now provides score for the team for capturing flags as well as scoring kills. This might deviate players from the primary objective but is a much needed feature so that all your shooting skills don’t go waste. Battlefield 1 will be out on October 21st.
