The never ending saga of Resident Evil is back, this time as Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City - a third person team based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil Universe.
Along with the new team features and competitive online multiplayer modes, also comes a big doubt: Can I Run Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City? Back in 2009 CAPCOM released a benchmark tool before the official release of Resident Evil 5. This is not the case for Res Evil ORC, but that does not matter as you are in the right place to check. Let's take a look at the Resident Evil ORC System Requirements...
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Minimum System Requirements
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo 2.4 Ghz or better, AMD Athlon(TM) X2 2.8 Ghz
GPU: NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 8800GTS / ATI Radeon(TM) HD 3850
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Max System Requirements
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad 2.7 Ghz or better /AMD Phenom(TM)II X4 3 Ghz
GPU: NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 560 / Radeon HD 6950
There's a line on the official release that says "Under NVIDIA program, not recommending ATI, but the equivalent card would be Radeon HD 6950" - this could mean poor driver support for AMD users or hardware incompatibility but we've come cross many games that recommend a certain manufacturer but in the end, as long as the GPU is powerful enough, everything's in the clear.
Only the Minimum System Requirements seem a little harsh since they strike out most mobile GPUs and some old middle-class deskop GPUs (e.g GeForce GT 430, Radeon HD 6570) but we believe with proper tweaking and perhaps future driver support, any middle-class Rig can run it, if not on the lowest settings.
We have added the GD Adjusted system requirements which represent a reasonably powerful PC that we feel will deliver a great Max Payne 3 gaming experience when the time comes.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will Hit the PC Platform on the 18th Of May and Game-Debate will be watching this with interest and we definitely want all your feedback guys. When the time comes please post up your Frame Rates and screen resolutions in the Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Ratings page.
