The original Dead Rising is over a decade old. It was originally designed for the Xbox 360, a console with just 512MB shared GDDR3 memory. Much has happened in the world of technology in the last 10 years though, and Dead Rising Remastered is perfectly primed to take advantage of this. It's coming to PC for this first time in September, packing support for resolutions of 4K and beyond, unlocked frame rates and mouse and keyboard support. The dead are rising once again, but what sort of hardware are you going to need to see it in all its glory? Check out the official system requirements for Dead Rising Remastered to find out.

Dead Rising Remastered isn't a particularly pretty game. In fact, it's basically just a sharper version of the Xbox 360 original. Sure, there's lots of zombies on screen at any one time, but we're detailing with very simple geometry and basic, flat textures. Stacked up against the visuals, I'd say the system requirements for Dead Rising HD are comparatively high. There's still quite a bit lower than Dead Rising 3, mind, but you're going to need a semi-decent graphics card from the last four years or so in order to play it. Fortunately it's flanked by very minimum CPU demands despite the amount of NPCs on screen at any one time, as well as just 2GB RAM.
From here it's a very large leap up to Dead Rising HD's recommended hardware for all but the graphics cards. You're going to need a meaty processor to crank all those draw distance settings up, requiring a decent quad-core CPU such as the Core i5-4570 or AMD FX-6350. Memory requirements quadruple also, although most PC gamers probably have 8GB RAM these days.
