Star Wars Battlefront system requirements released

Star Wars Battlefront

EA released the system requirements for Star Wars Battlefront ahead of its recent PC beta, and it\'s as demanding as we\'d expect from a big DICE shooter. According to EA, you\'re going to want a GTX 970 and modern Core i5 CPU to run Battlefront to its fullest. But from our our testing with the Battlefront beta, the actual system requirements aren\'t too scary. We got decent performance on a four-year-old PC by adjusting the settings.
