Battlefield 4 PC specs on Uplay were place-holder – report

Battlefield 4’s recommended and minimum PC specs were believed to have appeared in the unlikeliest of places; Ubisoft’s digital store Uplay. An alleged EA employee has now debunked the specs as place-holder.

UPDATE: BF4blog has reported that a Reddit user called Offspring – who is listed as EA employee / Origin producer – has debunked the specs.

They said, “I don’t believe the final system requirements have been decided yet, and this looks a lot like placeholder system requirements from BF3 with a couple of tweaks. I know everyone’s excited for BF4 news, but I wouldn’t trust an Ubisoft page with system requirements for it just yet.”

Thanks MTS91. The wait for actual specs continues.

ORIGINAL STORY: Spotted by Redditors, the Uplay store client was said to have been updated with a list of specs for Battlefield 4. We’ve listed them below, but do treat these as place-holder and rumour until EA confirms them officially.

Minimum Requirements:

  • OS: Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) 32-bit
  • Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Althon X2. 2.7 GHz)
  • Memory: 2 GB System RAM
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 10.1 compatible with 512 MB RAM
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible

Recommended Requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad-core CPU
  • Memory: 4 GB
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX11 compatible with 1024 MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or ATI Radeon 6950)
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible

We’ve asked EA if these specs are legitimate.

Battlefield 4 hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 1 here in Europe, and October 29 in North America.

Thanks MP1st.
