After seeing the skyscraper destruction in the Battlefield 4 E3 demonstration, my first thought was a standard "Wow, that's impressive!" The folks at DICE know their stuff from a technical standpoint.
Then it hit me. I'm going to want to run this game at a decent frame rate. My next thought was "F****k, that's impressive." The worst (or perhaps best?) part is not knowing what kind of hardware we'll need, but that's no longer an unknown. Here are the system specs, straight from DICE.
You good for October 29 in North America and November 1 in Europe? I'm gonna go ahead and ignore that mention of Windows 8.
