Dice revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for Battlefield V and they are almost identical to those of Battlefield 1. We also get the first ever specific specs for Nvidia's Ray tracing feature, but only RTX owners.

Just weeks before Battlefield V release it still feels like the hype for the next instalment in the series has never been lower. Dan Mitre, Dice's global community manager will be hoping his post on Reddit, which reveals the official minimum and recommended system requirements for the game will inject some life in EA's Battlefield V marketing.

If you're not one those people who splashed cash on the newest Nvidia hardware, the specs are very similar to those of previous title, Battlefield 1. But if you can't wait to play Battlefield V with all the fancy lighting and shiny reflections your hardware better be up to date.

Battlefield V is the first game to support Nvidia's RTX technology and both Dice and Nvidia spent a lot of time talking about it over the year. We have to admit, it's a cool feature but how many players will sacrifice high framerate for better graphics in a multiplayer game? 

Here are the specs, and as you notice, the minimum and recommended specs are not overly demanding with Intel's i5 6600K and AMD's FX-8350 leading the way.

Minimum system requirements:

OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
Graphics: GTX 1050 / GTX 660 2GB | RX 560 / HD 7850 2GB
CPU: Core i5 6600K | AMD FX-8350

Recommended system requirements:

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
Graphics: GTX 1060 6GB | RX 580 8GB
CPU:  Core i7 4790 | AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
RAM: 12 GB

Recommended system requirements for DXR:

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809)
Graphics: RTX 2070
CPU:  Intel Core i7 8700 | AMD Ryzen 7 2700
RAM: 16 GB

With system requirements out, EA will surely look to pick up the pace and get the hype train moving in the upcoming days. They still have a mountain to climb if closing the gap to Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is what they're aiming for.

CoD's Blackout battle royale mode has been nothing but success since its debut and with Battlefield's own battle-royale mode Firestorm, not launching until March 2019 it will be interesting to see how exactly EA plans to pull this one around.
