Battlefield 3 Official PC System Requirements Available

Electronic Arts and DICE have finally released the official PC system requirements for the upcoming Battlefield 3 first person shooter, confirming what exact specifications computers need to meet to run the new title.

Battlefield 3 has been in development for quite some time and we've heard a variety of details about it and its innovative Frostbite 2 engine, which allows the title to display realistic graphics and animations.

Since the game's official announcement, we've seen a variety of footage, taken from all the game's versions, including the PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, but only PC owners worried about what sorts of specifications their gaming rigs need to meet in order to handle Battlefield 3.

We already saw a leaked version of the system requirements appear many months ago, but only now did EA and DICE confirm a set of official specifications, so check out the minimum and recommended specs for Battlefield 3 below, via Eurogamer.
