As I’ve stated below, the minimum PC requirements for Battlefield V as listed on Origin did not make sense. Turns out my suspension was correct as EA DICE now removed those specs from Origin, with the following explanation (via Battlefield Bulletin):
“PSA: The #Battlefield V minimum #PC system requirements have just been removed from the Origin Store as DICE is currently focusing on finalizing and polishing the game. . “
The minimum PC requirements have been removed from South African Origin page and from the US. page.

Yesterday, EA DICE announced that they’re partnering with Nvidia to bring the best aspects of the GeForce Experience to PC for this year’s Battlefield title. EA also released the minimum PC requirements for Battlefield V via Origin, and I have to say that I find these specs baffling.
I’ve watched the reveal on Wednesday, and the graphics stand out even more than the female soldier we saw during the reveal. (You should read our Battlefield V Reveal: Top 10 Things You Need to Know). Those spectacular animations are in-game footage and showcase gameplay, and I, therefore, expected the PC requirements to be rather high. Instead, this.

The question then – but was that gameplay, and will the finished product look much different than what we saw on Wednesday? In an interview with Eurogamer, DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson said about the footage we saw during the reveal. “Everything is shot in-game, and everything will happen in the game – it’s all game engine and it’s all going to happen, so it’s a cinematic take on it,” explains Gustavsson.
That “cinematic gameplay” means what? When asked if there will be a disclaimer to state that what we saw was not exactly gameplay, Gustavsson responded with a definite “No.”
“No! Everything that happens in there will be in the final thing. It’s cramming a lot that’s new in there, I’m pretty amazed by what the team has managed to squeeze in, in a continuous flow. approaches in our trailers previously, but this one we really wanted to focus on gameplay – what is new, and what you’ll be able to experience on the battlefield. “W
Battlefield 1’s minimum PC specs listed the Radeon 7850 2GB and the GeForce GTX 660 for graphics cards, in fact, the minimum requirements are a mirror of Battlefield 1, and the new Battlefield is two years older than the previous installment. It almost feels like a mistake, and I’m wondering if Origin did not keep list the wrong PC specs.
Be that as it may, you can check it out listed underneath the Battlefield V pre-order on Origin. Talking about pre-orders, here’s your South African Price List for Battlefield V.
Take a look at the trailer again, now imagine that with the PC specs listed above.
