      I must be getting old and out of the loop because I don't recognize either of those CPUs.

        Me too! I'll be upgrading my GTX 670 and 2500K later next year for sure.

      I'm good on recommended requirements, except for CPU.

      Damn, the recommended is pretty hardcore. I guess I'll assume that's for 1080p Ultra and a good-for-PC framerate, though.

        Don't forget who's making it. 90% chance game will be buggy and poorly optimized on release.

      Wonder how bad it runs on these minimum requirements..

      We'll see how my oc'd 2500k and 1st gen Titan handle it.

      I imagine it will be just find. If not, it's past time for a CPU upgrade.

      I am conflicted. For ten year old me, this is dreams made digital flesh. I get to run around as a storm trooper (or a whiney rebel) and engage in gun fights and fly a Tie Fighter. Adult me realizes that I haven't played a Battlefield game since 2, and even then it was a short marriage. I broke up with Titanfall a few months after launch because it got ... I don't know boring?


      This will definitely not be a day one purchase for me, and even though the larger player base will end up on the consoles in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Fifteen I still cannot bring myself to play an FPS on a console. It's frustrating having Franklin shoot people in GTA V (and those shooting range challenges can fuck right off).

      What say you?

        Yeah it's a tough call for me too. The game looks massively appealing to me, but I'm no longer a competitive multiplayer gamer. But if I don't jump on it immediately, I'll NEVER be able to catch up and be able to hold my own. I tried to get into Titanfall late after release and it was a god damn nightmare and extremely frustrating. I will try the beta for PC and PS4 to see if it's an experience I can't live without, but I have a feeling I'll just stick to watching other people play it and listening to other people's experiences.

          SOOOOOO MUCH THIS.

          DICE knows these betas are pretty much demos at this point and you should be willing to use them as such.

          Also, I think some people here who recently got into BF4 can confirm that.

            ....confirm that you are not perpetually behind and prevented from having fun if you join late.

      Where do I sign up / download the beta? I just built a new PC this weekend that's slightly over the recommended specs, can't wait to push it.

      Still no confirmation of DX12/Vulkan/Mantle support. Would be kinda lame if BF4, BF Hardline, and Plants vs Zombies have Mantle support but Battlefield doesn't.
