Can Your PC Run Resident Evil Village?

Can Your PC Run Resident Evil Village

Capcom has released the hardware requirements for it’s latest survival horror, so you check out if your PC can run Resident Evil Village.

Dropped over on the official Steam Store entry, Capcom has confirmed the hardware you will need if your PC is looking to survive a run in with their latest horror adventure. Alongside the Steam release of specifications for players looking to head out into the wilderness and take on all sorts of nightmarish entities, we also got some more detail information directly from Capcom over the weekend too.

Capcom has detailed a little more on hardware requirements over on their Japanese website. Thanks to fans over on the Resetera Forums, who IGN spotted, we now know the requirements for anybody looking to turn on Ray Tracing in Resident Evil Village. Fundamentally, there isn’t a huge amount of difference between the recommended specification with and without Ray Tracing turned on. Much of the change simply comes down to your ability to swipe a card that supports the high end light rendering tech. For players that want to delve into Village, you’ll need the following:

Minimum Specifications

OS: Windows 10 64-bit
DirectX Version: DirectX 12
Processor: Intel Core i5-7500 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GB VRAM / AMD Radeon RX 560 with 4 GB VRAM

Recommended Specifications – Without Ray Tracing

OS: Windows 10 64-bit
DirectX Version: DirectX 12
Processor: Intel Core i7-8700 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX 5700

Recommended Specifications – With Ray Tracing

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 version 2004 or later
DirectX Version: DirectX 12
Processor: Intel Core i7-8700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics Card:
Nvidia GeForce GTX 2070
Nvidia GeForce GTX 3070
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
AMD Radeon RX 6800
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT

You’ll notice we don’t know how much room the title will take up yet, so it’s same to say the more high speed storage you’ve got on hand, the better. There will also be some fluctuation when pushing the picture up as high as 4K, with the 2070 series, for example, expected to drop down to around 45fps rather than 60fps. Of course, this is all speculation until we see how it runs for real. Remember Cyberpunk 2077? You can have a look at the full specifications over on the official Steam Store page or the Capcom site and get hunting for that elusive graphics card before Resident Evil: Village releases 7 May.
