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 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.
