Is your PC ready for Resident Evil Village? PC System Requirements Revealed

Resident Evil Village is due to release on PC on May 7th, bringing higher hardware requirements than its predecessors and a DirectX 12 hardware requirement.  

Resident Evil Village is Capcom's first next-generation title, which means that the game has been designed with Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 hardware in mind. As such, the game will support hardware-accelerated ray tracing on PC and will likely benefit from SSD-based storage solutions. 

Resident Evil Village will follow the events of Resident Evil 7, offering players a first-person horror experience that delivers gamers a new story that features some familiar faces. Chris Redfield will be present within the game, though it is unknown whether he will act as a hero or a villain in this game. 

On PC, Resident Evil Village is designed to run on Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system, which makes sense given the game's utilisation of DirectX 12 and support for ray tracing. Capcom has stated that they will update Resident Evil Village's hardware requirements over time as the game's development progresses. 

Is your PC ready for Resident Evil Village? PC System Requirements Revealed  
On PC, Resident Evil Village will require a strong quad-core processor to run well, with the game requiring CPUs equal too or more powerful than Intel's Core i5-7500 and AMD's Ryzen 3 1200. However, Capcom has recommended more powerful processors like Intel's i7-8700 or AMD's Ryzen 5 3600. 

RAM-wise, Resident Evil Village will run on systems with 8GB of system memory, though 16GB of memory is recommended. GPU-wise, Resident Evil Village requires GPUs like AMD's RX 560 or Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and a minimum of 4GB of VRAM. On the high-end, Capcom recommends Nvidia's GTX 1070 and AMD's RX 5700. 

60 FPS Performance Targets

Capcom's PC system requirements target 1080p/60 FPS resolution/performance targets, with the game's minimum requirements using the game's "Prioritise Performance" preset. In contrast, the game's recommended system requirements use a higher, unnamed, graphical preset. 

Capcom has also confirmed Resident Evil Village's GPU requirements for ray tracing, listing Nvidia's RTX 2070 graphics card and AMD's RX 6700 XT graphics card. 

Ray Tracing

While Capcom has listed Nvidia's RTX 2070 graphics card and AMD's RX 6700 XT graphics card as Resident Evil Village's required GPUs for ray tracing, this doesn't mean that both of these cards will deliver equivalent performance levels. Capcom cannot reveal any unannounced Radeon products, which could mean that lower-end RDNA 2 graphics cards may be able to run Resident Evil Village with Ray Tracing enabled. 

Below are Resident Evil Village's full PC system requirements.

OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)
