Resident Evil 4 might have come out a full seven years ago on PC, but this re-release is set to overhaul the graphical options and textures to bring it kicking and screaming into 2014. 

Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition is bringing with it enhanced resolutions, upgraded characters, backgrounds, and objects, to deliver the ultimate version of the ultimate Resident Evil. Following the tales of Leon S. Kennedy as he makes his way to a remote Eastern European village in order to rescue the president's daughter from an evil cult, Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition is set to be a redefining of a survival-horror classic. Be sure to check out the system requirements below to see if your PC can take advantage of these graphical upgrades... 

Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP 32-bit and upwards

CPU: Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.8 GHz

RAM: 2GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 4850

DX: DirectX 9.0c

HDD: 15 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista 64-bit Edition and upwards

CPU: 2.7 GHz Quad Core Intel Core i5-2500S or 3GHz AMD Phenom II X4 940

RAM: 4 GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7750

HDD: 15 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition might have originally released on the modest Gamecube but this HD remake looks to be a lot more demanding than the previous version that arrived on PC seven years ago.

In comparison to the original release even the Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition minimum requirements are a massive step up. The jump from a 2 GHz Pentium 4 to a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo is sizeable and it doesn't get any better for those of you wanting to get this creaking classic playing at recommended settings. 

The minimum requirements should be manageable though for most PCs, but the upgraded graphics have clearly had a big impact on the system requirements. The classic GeForce GTS 8800 should see you booting this one up on minimum, although of course it would almost be worth tracking down a copy of the original if you're not seeing a significant leap.

The recommended system requirements for Resident Evil 4 though are most definitely no slouch. A GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7750 suggests that the increased resolution and texture quality may stretch your system somewhat. As well as this the installation size has double in size, from 7GB for the original Resident Evil 4, up to 15GB for this HD remake, again thanks to those textures.

Be sure to check if your PC can run Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition System Requirements.

Also remember to share your benchmarking performance and let everyone know whether you can hit that crucial fixed 60 frames per second option....

I have Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition. graphics look no better than my Sega 32X lol.Hopefully the new HD version will blow me away. Not that I have ever had a Resident Evil game on my pc. They have all been console versions. So far my favorite is Resident Evil Revelations on both the 3DS and the Wii U. I used to love the original on the PS. However I have tried playing it again, but I can't get back into those old God awful controls

Exaggerated reqs as always..i bet it will be maxed on much lower hardware..up ressing of textures dont require that more processing power..look at liberation proof that HD remake's reqs are wrong..i bet this will be easily maxed on 1080p on 7750 with 40+fps..

so, they're higher than my PC, f**k...oh well, hoping for optimization. (capcom did well with DmC, nothing has as good of optimization that I've found so far, so I hope Re4 Ultimate HD will be similar)

Seems exaggerated.If they promised 60fps then it will be playable even on the nvidia GeForce GT 610
