Here’s What you Need to Play Battlefield 3 on PC

With the Battlefield 3 beta being recently announced to begin on September 29th across all platforms,  DICE has also released the system specifications for the PC version of the game.  The minimum and optimal specs are detailed below, and if you are running a stock PC, with no graphics card updates, you’ll definitely be needing an upgrade if you plan to play Battlefield 3 even at it’s minimum capacity on PC.

If you were on the fence about where you’ll be playing Battlefield 3 this fall, have a look below at what we like to call “The Wallet Damage Assessment”.  Look at this way, if you upgrade now for Battlefield 3, you’ll get years worth of gaming before the next generation of consoles come out.  As a bonus,  you can tell everyone at Attack of the Fanboy that your PC craps all over their console.

As it sounds, the beta appears to be running the same map as the alpha test for the game.  Operation Metro might come up a little short in the vehicle department, but the map is excellent for CQC.
