We all know that Battlefield 4 will need quite a hefty system to run it in all of its high-resolution polygonal glory. The PC beta is taking this a step further. To run the Battlefield 4 beta on your PC, you will need to run on a 64-bit version of Windows, developer DICE stated on the official Battlefield blog. However, DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has stated that the final release of the game will run on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

Troedsson has also outlined all of the things that DICE will be testing through the beta, which includes the anti-cheat system of choice. PunkBuster and FairFight will both be tested during the beta "to make the experience as good as possible for our players." Players will be able to see messages in-game whenever a cheater is caught using one of the systems.
