"A number of fans are reportedly receiving their invites to the Battlefield 4 Alpha Trial. A screenshot of the invite can be seen on Neogaf along with the system requirements. Interestingly enough, the present game does not support Windows 8 or a 32-bit platform.

According to the recommended system requirements, alpha testers will need Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7, a 64-bit platform, a DirectX 10 or 11 compatible GPU, 1 GB of RAM or more, 25 GB of HDD space and the latest Origin client from EA. Naturally these requirements do not necessarily represent the requirements for the final game."

"The selection process is completely random, and though some might suggest that a high Battlefield Veteran status or BF4 pre-orders, this is simply not the case as the selection process is, once again, random," said Neogaf user RoKKeR who posted the invite screenshot. "For those that remember the Battlefield 3 Alpha trial, the amount of play testers will be increased as the trial progresses, so if you don't get an invite now, there is a chance you will get one in a few days or even next week."
