One of the greatest and most influential horror games of all time is set to grace our gaming PCs in just a fortnight's time. I'm talking about Resident Evil, the game that single-handedly kickstarted a horror revolution. It's back, and it's back with a bang, delivering a fully remastered HD experience that brings an age old classic bang up to date.

Practically everything in the Resident Evil HD Remaster has been remade from the ground up, thanks to all new 3D models and a total reworking of the static backgrounds for high definition. This is joined by all new post-processing effects such as bloom filters that weren't possible at the time, widescreen support, and new controls, ensuring we should be getting the ultimate version of one of the ultimate games. To find out whether your rig's getting munched by a zed or delivering a crushing face stomp though, read on to check out the official Resident Evil HD Remaster system requirements.

Resident Evil HD Remaster Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit Service Pack 1
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or AMD Athlon II X2 220 2.8GHz
  • RAM: 2GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 260 or AMD Radeon HD 6790
  • HDD: 16GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c

Resident Evil HD Remaster Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.7GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6950 
  • Controller: Gamepad, preferably Xbox 360 PC compatible controller recommended 

For those of you familiar with Resident Evil 6 and its system requirements this should be familiar territory. Despite being a pretty ancient game now, this Resident Evil HD Remaster is clearly going to be a little demanding thanks to its enhanced effects and HD graphics, but Capcom has succeeded in practically matching 2013's Resident Evil 6, only taking an ever so slight leap when it comes to GPU and OS demands. The minimum requirements see a slight generational bump from the GeForce 8800GT and the Radeon GD 3850 up to the GeForce GTX 260 and the Radeon HD 6790, while Windows XP just won't cut it here, demanding a minimum of Windows 7.

The RAM requirements for the Resident Evil HD Remaster are extremely reasonable, capping out at 4GB, while the processor demands for RE:HD remain 100% identical to Resident Evil 6. This means a fairly low-end dual-core processor will suffice, while much of the GD community should be more than capable of hitting the recommended requirements.

Of note is that Capcom recommends a gamepad for optimal play. It's a third-person adventure so this is most likely the case, but making use of the original 'tank' controls should be just as good on keyboard and mouse as a gamepad, so it's only a must if you're going to make use of the rejigged control scheme.

I should've bought this for PS4. My PC will suffer with this game. Can't believe a ten year-old game squeezes almost triple the juice than Skyrim @ Ultra

See now these system requirements make sense there is not a huge performance gap between the recommended intel and amd cpu see this developers.

This is for a 13 year old game with some new textures! This isn't a new game, it's a game for the Gamecube. This is way too high! Thanks Capcom!

16GB of free HDD space? Thats like the same amount of space as watch dogs. Did they overhaul the audio or something?

Watch_Dogs is 40+gb's of space, it's not fair to compare the two. But yes. Agreed that this file is nowhere's near or should be that size. I'm thinking instead of just HD ''wallpaper'' effect like the old re's had, they did away with that. Put shaders, made the textures come to life. Instead of looking like they copy and pasted google images.

Watch_Dogs is like 18GB, with only the English sound files.

Yes with all of its updates, you must be forgetting it's Initial release. Anyways, we could spend all day bickering. When I'll take the 16gb vs T.N.O's 40+ and The Evil Within's I mean it could be worse.

TEW is a poorly done game, but its a longer/newer game. RE is an old game 2d backgrounds with a 3-6 hour completion time depending on how well you play it

poorly done in what way?
I strongly disagree! Have you played it all the way thru?

Yes I played it all the way through struggling with a frame rate in the 20s in outdoor areas. The game is a poorly optimized MESS.

There is not much of a difference between minimum and recommended GPUs (well as far as minimum and recommended GPUs go anyway)... If those requirements are accurate, it probably does not have good scalability... But then again, the jackass publishers probably inflated it...

No problem with that. Alot of games still uses DX9 eg. Borderlands pre-sequel

well i was glad, but i would've preferred it to require dx 10 as both graphics cards required support directx 10 (i doubt a 7800 gtx can run the game)

It's pretty reasonable though? It using parts from many-many years ago for the requirements, so i'm pretty sure most of the people can play it just fine nowadays. But i admit the size of the game is bull though.
