Get the low down on the Battlefield 2042 System Requirements

Ahead of the launch of Battlefield 2042 later this year, the team have let some players into a playtesting program to try out the game for themselves. You can register to try it out for yourself right here but the chance of you actually getting it is quite unlikely.
