Resident Evil 6 was released on console in October and we are advised that it will become available for PC on 22nd March 2013, in North America as a digital download, whereas in Europe the game will become available as both a digital version and a physical copy.

Lets take a look at the RE6 System Requirements which are also now available...

The digital download of Resident Evil 6 will have full support for Steam, featuring achievements, leaderboards, and cloud saving.

The game will include different updates that were brought to consoles too, with the new difficulty mode called "No hope" and the campaign of Ada Wong.

Capcom also published the official system requirements, and recommend systems running with NVIDIA GeForce GPUs "to deliver the best experience when playing Resident Evil 6 PC".

Resident Evil 6 Minimum System Requirements 

OS: Windows Vista/XP, Windows 7, Windows 8

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (E6600) or AMD Athlon X2 2.8 Ghz (II x2 220)

RAM: 2GB Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or AMD Equivalent

DX: DirectX 9 graphics card

HDD: 16GB Free hard drive space

 

Resident Evil 6 Recommended System Requirements 

OS: Windows Vista/XP, Windows 7, Windows 8

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.7 Ghz (Q9450) or AMD Phenom II X4 3 Ghz (X4 940) 

RAM: 4GB Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Equivalent

DX: DirectX 9 graphics card

HDD: 16GB Free hard drive space

Looks like the 8800 GT is still alive and taking its place as the regular minimum requirement GPU, since Resident Evil 6 will have support for DX 9 graphics cards, hence will run even on weaker rigs than those built for great future proof.

While it's great news to now have an official release date, people waiting for the PC version still have to wait for some time.

Whats your thoughts on the minimum requirements not being as demanding as other modern titles? Make some noise in the comments below with your thoughts about the game.

DX9 is good for old PC. But it should be the choice of DX9, DX10 and DX11.
We are in 2012 almost 2013 and I think that all games should include DX9, DX10 and DX11.

Why does North America only get digital download? It would take me AT LEAST 16 hours to download 16GB with basic DSL connection. Give me the game ON DISC or not at all!

I would gladly accept this fact if faster internet wasn't so expensive. I can barely afford basic DSL with all my other bills. The local companies are charging INSANE prices for broadband. I've heard fast internet is much cheaper in other countries. Makes me wish America would catch up :(

It is probable, though on 1600x900 it's not very likely to run very smooth. If the game is well optimized I reckon you'd have chances on running the game
