Battlefield 4 beta is 64-bit only, pre-loads on September 28
DICE has confirmed that the PC version of the upcoming Battlefield 4 beta will be 64-bit only. This marks the first time (as far as we know) a major game or software product goes 64-bit only, which is actually a good thing. 64-bit allows for better performance across the board.
The official Battlefield 4 system requirements list minimum of 4 GB of RAM, which now makes sense with the 64-bit requirement. However, the official system specs also list 32-bit as minimum requirement for the OS. Honestly, we hope the game just goes 64-bit only across the board.
Earlier today, EA announced that players will be able to start pre-loading the Battlefield 4 beta on September 28 on Origin. The beta starts on October 1st for those who have pre-ordered Battlefield 4 or have BF3 Premium. The open beta starts on October 4th, and runs until October 15th.
