With the beta for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 running from October 6 to October 9 (or October 4 for those with early access), many fans of the beloved sci-fi franchise have been gearing up to check out the upcoming title. Now, those planning on playing the Battlefront 2 open beta on PC have a better chance to plan ahead, after the PC specs for the game were released.

These Star Wars: Battlefront 2 system specs were revealed by Electronic Arts and DICE over on the official page for the beta. In terms of minimum requirements, a 64-bit OS at Windows 7 SP1 is required, alongside 8GB RAM and 55GB of hard drive space. However, no doubt players will want to reach a little more than the minimum specs.

Those planning to check out the Battlefront 2 beta should also take heed of a warning left by EA. “The Star Wars: Battlefront 2 beta is among the biggest ever distributed by EA, so be mindful that downloading and installing will take a while,” stated the publisher. “Be sure to allow plenty of time for this!”

Electronic Arts has also given a bit of a glimpse at what players can expect from the open beta. For starters, the Galactic Assault mode will be up for grabs in the beta, as well as the Starfighter Assault mode, with the Rebel Alliance aiming to destroy a Star Destroyer over Fondor. Also included will be the Strike and Arcade modes.

According to the game’s developers, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is EA’s most ambitious game yet, although those who felt disappointed in the lack of content in the 2015 game will perhaps be hesitant to jump into a pre-order just yet. However, should the beta prove to be successful, there’s every chance that those cautious about this next iteration in the Battlefront series may loosen up a little.
