Surprisingly enough, the Battlefield 2042 system requirements are estimated to be low considering how beautiful the game looked in its promotional material. With that being said, there are a few factors as to why. The first being that the optimization teams at DICE are especially good at their job, meaning the game can run silky smooth on a wide variety of hardware. The other reason is the lack of a single-player or battle royale mode as most may have originally expected. This means the team doesn’t have to take those into account when considering the hit on performance or file size.

Battlefield 2042 will release on October 22, 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. You can preorder the game here.
