Battlefield Hardline PC system requirements – 60GB and 64-Bit OS needed

Battlefield Hardline PC system requirements – 60GB and 64-Bit OS needed

Has your rig got what it takes to play cops and robbers?

With the Battlefield Hardline open beta scheduled for 3 February (a 10GB pre-load is available now through Origin), EA has released the Battlefield Hardline PC system requirements.

Visceral has already stated that if you can run Battlefield 4 then running Battlefield Hardline should not be an issue. That said, this is a beta test and we know how those can turn out. Game runs fine in the beta, then retail release hits and the game is suddenly running like a dog.

It’s worth pointing out that you will need a 64bit OS this time and it takes up a fair chunk of hard drive space as well, 60GB to be exact. That’s double what Battlefield 4 asked for.

According to the system specs article, the game is still undergoing optimisation for lower-end PCs so people with only 4GB of RAM might “experience issues.” In a Battlefield game? Surely not.

There’s also a special video explaining why Hardline will be super-duper great on PC. You may recall a similar “made by PC gamers for PC gamers” hype video being produced for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Hopefully this situation turns out a little better.

      Ok this is becoming a worrisome trend. Gta V too, 65 GB. Worrisome because I have to download this games forever and because of the limited capacity of SSDs. I guess the cause is the 1440p textures, but at this point offer the user the possibility to download them separately as a free dlc (let them decide before the download process). I’m playing at 1680*1050 ffs.
