“Origin Producer Redditor Offspring said, “I don’t believe the final system requirements have been decided yet, and this looks a lot like placeholder system requirements from BF3 with a couple of tweaks. I know everyone’s excited for BF4 news, but I wouldn’t trust an Ubisoft page with system requirements for it just yet.”
It seems that this is just a placeholder.

Why is sound card only DirectX 9.0c compatible? Isn't 11 better?
That's the minimum requirement. DirectX9.0 or better (are there even sound cards that are specifically DX11? I still use an older Creative X-Fi, haven't been keeping up with that market.)

Frostbite 3 only supports DirectX 11, but there we have DirectX 10.1...

Fake and placeholder.

My PC is ready.

My body is ready.

My soul is ready...to be disappointed in the maps. Lets hope I am wrong, I really REALLY want them to nail this one. I was not a huge fan of BF3, maps felt like a step backwards from Battlefield 2. I hope this "levelution" brings back the dynamics of those old maps where players have more options on how to approach capture points.

They already said that Operation Metro is the most popular map in BF3, so it will probably return in BF4.

Worst map ever...

It was the most popular map because people went on there to fastrack through DICE's shitty unlock system.

What really bothers me is that the developers don't seem to realize that its the most popular map because it allows for very fast XP gains.

They genuinely think people love it as a map. Cut the xp gain in half on that map and its popularity would plummet.

as DLC...not as a vanilla map.

It's like Windows 8 doesn't exist....
I run BF3 in win8 just fine.

Frostbite 3 only supports DirectX 11, but there we have DirectX 10.1...
these specs could very well be placeholder, but BF3 is backwards compatible with DirectX 10.1 actually.

Wait. Why is it on Uplay? Does Uplay usually put up EA games?

I'm confused.

This is a few months old already. Ubi and EA have an agreement where they'll sell each others games on each others platforms.


EA still requires Origin regardless and vice versa for Ubi and Uplay

Simcity on Uplay


Far Cry 3 on Origin

Huh? What do you mean?
I had issues with BF3 on Windows 8, because 'it is not officially supported'. Looks like 4 will be the same, if recommended is windows 7. It was fixed after some reading and beta drivers, but it was a pain in the ass. I am not the most technical person when it comes to PC's, though I understand some. It is troublesome that new games are being released with the same 'not official support' moniker. I bought a laptop, and had no option but to have windows 8.

This brings up a good question: I am building a new PC this winter. Is there any benefit to installing Windows 8 at this point?
Not to my knowledge. It has only caused me problems, even though it is a nice OS once you get used to the changes.

as I said. DX11.1 is win8 exclusive...

dont think BF4 will utilize DX11.1 though just 11.0.
We use DX11.1, there are some optimizations in it (constant buffer offsets, dynamic buffers as SRVs) that we got in to the the API that improves CPU performance in our rendering when one runs with DX11.1. This will be in BF4.
