The Resident Evil series is back and bigger than ever, as Resident Evil Village is coming out on May 7th. So far we've only had hints as to what the recommended PC system requirements could be, and as it turns out we were pretty close as Capcom has revealed the official PC system requirements for Resident Evil 8.
Although we were pretty close with our RE8 predicted system requirements, we were also a little high compared to the official specs. Resident Evil 8 seems to be pretty demanding at 1080p, and also requires some pretty beefy graphics cards in order to run at 4K 60fps with ray tracing enabled.
Thankfully Capcom has provided some relatively handy performance metrics based on hardware. So you know both the minimum and recommended specs for RE Village are going to hit 1080p at 60fps at least.
Lastly, Capcom has not revealed the storage requirements yet, so unfortunately we don't have any idea about how big in size Resident Evil Village will be, or whether it recommends to have the game installed on an SSD.
But with that all out the way, let's jump in and take a look at the official Resident Evil 8 PC system requirements...
Resident Evil 8 minimum system requirements - 1080p/60fps
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-7500 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200
- RAM: 8GB
- GPU RAM: 4GB
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 560
- DX: 12
Resident Evil 8 recommended system requirements - 1080p/60fps
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Resident Evil 8 ray tracing system requirements
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit Version 2004 or later
|RX 6700 XT||4K/45fps|
|RX 6900 XT||4K/60fps|
Your PC system will need a graphics card that is at least as powerful as a GTX 1070 or RX 5700 in order to match the Resident Evil 8 recommended system requirements. This should then be paired with either a Core i7-8700 or Ryzen 5 3600 processor as well as 16GB of RAM. This combination of hardware will then deliver 1080p 60fps gameplay on the "Screen quality-oriented" - in other words, High - graphics setting.
Looking over the minimum system requirements for Resident Evil 8 you will need at least a GTX 1050 Ti or RX 560 GPU paired with a Core i5-7500 or Ryzen 3 1200 CPU. Minimum required system memory is 8GB. This will then deliver 1080p 60fps performance on the "Performance-focused" - or, Low - graphics setting.

Why are people rating a game that no one has played yet or is there at least a open beta that i missed?
Crossing fingers for a 4k 60fps with my 2080ti !
Now that is optimization
Although I hope my CPU will be fine
same, never thought i would need to upgrade so soon for 60 fps gameplay. I play at 4k, so i thought GPU would always be my bottleneck. Doesnt look like it
Just overclock you cpu, even if you use stock cooler it should be fine, my r7 2700 is overclocked all cores to 4ghz and temps never goes above 65C on cpu intensive titles, my cpu just wants a way more powerful gpu like an rtx 3070ti or 3080 tho i think i might have botlenecks in some future games
I just avoid overclocking in general since I'm not that good with it
