Battlefield 1 PC requirements- have you got the rig?

Battlefield 1 is heading for release very soon, and it's going to take us back to World War One for the first time in many a year.

The carnage of the early part of the 20th century was fertile fodder for first person shooters for a long time, until the likes of Modern Warfare brought us right up to date and even pushed events into the future.

Things are starting to get a little sci-fi and silly, so EA Games and DICE decided to get back to a simpler time with Battlefield 1, which launches on the 21st of October, 2016. If you're planning on running the game on PC, here's a look at the specs you'll need to just about run the thing and make it look really pretty:
