We've only just been treated to the delights of the Resident Evil HD Remaster, but Capcom already has begun readying Resident Evil Revelations 2 for launch next month. I say next month, but RE: Revelations 2 will be arriving in weekly instalments from February 24th, through into March. 

The first all-new Resident Evil title since the controversially crud Resident Evil 6, RE: Revelations 2 looks to continue the gameplay from its spin-off predecessor, mixing classic survival horror with all-out action sequences. Claire Redfield returns, alongside series favourite Barry Burton and a few surprises, as the player explores a remote prison island infested with horrors. Before you start getting your brain munched on though, you might want to check out the official system requirements for Resident Evil Revelations 2 to see if your rig's up to the task. 

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66GHz  or AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4000+ 2.5GHz
  • RAM: 2GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS or AMD Radeon HD 4650
  • HDD: 23GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6950
  • Additional: Xbox 360 Controller Recommended

If you played the original Resi Revelations, which you really should've, then these requirements should be pretty familiar to you. They're almost identical except for increased hard drive demands, so if you could run then then it's safe to assume you can run this. 

If you've not, the system requirements for Resident Evil: Revelations 2 are mercifully low, pretty similar to the HD Remaster in fact. Processor demands look to be the most challenging, but any semi-decent graphics card bought during the lifetime of the previous generation of consoles should be good to with RE:R2. Resident Evil Revelations 2 has been created with the capabilities of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in mind, which is reflected in these modest requirements. 

As with most Resident Evil titles a gamepad is recommended, but not vital. It's a third-person action game that's still pretty slow-paced, which makes it ideal fodder for both control setups.

Its system requirements are nice (especially the CPU part). For many games today, you need at least a Pentium G, Core i3 or even Core i5 + DirectX 10/11 compatible GPU.

Too bad the game will have MICRO-TRANSACTIONS for the multiplayer part, even though it's a game you pay for...

The game may use components (like VS 2012, .NET 4.5) which are not compatible with the outdated Windows XP.

Usually with new titles the minimum reqs are the same as the reccomended here.It's good to see a game which can be played on lower-end rig.

Nice requirements, it gives me hope that there are developers out there who are not crazy with high requirements. Cough, cough, you know who you are.

That's what I love about the Resident Evil's, their requirements are always not that demanding(excluding Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD edition, but Ubisoft touched that so we all know the reason).
