 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 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ 2.9GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 550 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 6770
  • DX: DirectX 11

Dead Rising Remastered Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7790

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.

Damn, the 360 only had 512mb of shared RAM? Oh how times have changed...

I've lost a lot of interest in these since it was confirmed that Case Zero and Case West weren't going to be included in the remaster. I basically only wanted them for completionist purposes to begin with, so if they're not going to actually fulfill that role, eh...

If they formatted the requirements in the same way they did the Dead Rising 3 ones, then there's nothing to fear.


For reference, the DR3 requirements were to get 30FPS and not drop in even the messiest, laggiest of situations.


(sure would be nice if we could get a standardised format for system requirements)

This "port" smells like easy money from a mile away, or maybe I'm becoming too cynical of a creature!
