Battlefield V is another highly anticipated game that will launch in the coming weeks.

Ahead of Battlefield V's launch, Dice has officially announced the PC system requirements for the game.

Key takeaways from the minimum and recommended specifications are that you need a significant amount of RAM for DXR or recommended system specifications and 50GB of drive space. Bethesda recently announced the minimum and recommended specifications for Fallout 76, and Dice's requirements for Battlefield V are even more modest on the minimum requirements side. Battlefield V launches on November 20 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Battlefield V has generated its fair share of controversy ahead of launch. When the game was announced, some were unhappy that the title, which is set in the WWII era, had women characters participating in combat; Dice said that women characters were here to stay. The game also had an issue with a profanity filter that was so strict during beta testing that it would censor words like "DLC." Despite the controversy, Battlefield V might be the shooter that fans of single-player campaigns want because it has one, unlike Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is only online.
