A Computer Capable Of Running Battlefront Is Much Stronger Than You Can Possibly Imagine

The force must be strong with EA as they prepare to launch the Open Beta for Star Wars: Battlefront on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Ahead of Thursday’s official kick off the publisher has posted the minimum and recommended specs for game on its official Origin page.

The recommended specs are probably going to shock a lot of people considering they are recommending an NVIDIA Geforce 960 & an  Intel i5 6600 both of which are top-shelf components costing about $300 USD a pop and both of which were only released in the last few months.  If you want to go with the minimum specs they’re recommending only a Geforce 660 or higher *phew*. Oh and the 16GBs of RAM is a little absurd if you ask me!

Is your PC up to the task? Perhaps you’ve squirreled away some money into your Death Star construction fund and can use some of it to upgrade your rig.

My computer falls squarely in-between the minimum and recommended. My processor is older (and is an AMD which has no recommended specs) and I’ve only got 8GBs of ram but at least my graphics card clears the recommended mark.

We’ll have full impressions of the Star Wars: Battlefront beta when it launches later this week. Oh and we’ll be playing it across multiple platforms to try and bring you the most comphrensive coverage possible.
