The PC requirements for the Resident Evil 4 remake are now available to check out on the game’s Steam page. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like you’ll need to have a high-end PC to enjoy the game. Both the minimum and recommended requirements are pretty relaxed. However, the game is sure to look gorgeous on those higher settings just like Resident Evil 2 and 3.
Capcom’s previous remakes of classic Resident Evil titles were similarly relaxed with their PC requirements. But both games also had high-end graphics options that could take full advantage of powerful hardware. Now, since Resident Evil 4 remake is also headed to next-gen consoles, the worry was that its PC requirements would be much higher. That’s not really the case.
Resident Evil 4 remake PC requirements
To start things off, let’s go over the minimum PC requirements for Resident Evil 4 remake. These requirements assume that you’re aiming to play the game at 1080p and 45 fps and are prioritizing performance.
- OS: Windows 10
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Core i5-7500
- Memory: 8GB RAM
- Graphics card: AMD Radeon RX 560 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
Again, these are pretty relaxed requirements. You’ll likely not be able to experience any of Resident Evil 4 remake’s more advanced graphics options. But if your number one goal is simply to play the game, then you don’t need a beefy PC for that. In comparison, the recommended requirements obviously ask for a bit more.
- OS: Windows 10 or Windows 11
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or Intel Core i7-8700
- Memory: 16GB RAM
- Graphics card: AMD Radeon RX 5700 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070
These recommended requirements assume that you’re aiming to play the game at 1080 and 60 fps. And if you wanted to use ray tracing, you’d need an AMD RX 6700 XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070. But these are still pretty easy requirements to meet. Unfortunately, the Steam page doesn’t list a recommended graphics preset to go along with this. We assume this is for a medium preset, but we’ll have to wait and see.
It doesn’t take much to run the Resident Evil 4 remake
Capcom’s last few releases have all catered to varying PCs brilliantly. And it’s great to see the trend may continue with Resident Evil 4‘s remake. The specifics of the PC port’s quality will have to wait until the game comes out on March 24. But before then, have another look at Resident Evil 4 remake’s PC requirements to make sure your rig can handle it.
Resident Evil 4 remake also looks to be changing up plenty of things from the original game. This includes a revamp of the game’s knives and a big change to the handling of QTEs.
