Resident Evil Village PC System Requirements, Multiplayer Mode Open Beta Dates Revealed
The PC system requirements have been revealed for Resident Evil Village, as well as dates for the Re:Verse multiplayer Open Beta, which kicks off on April 7th.
The minimum and recommended system requirements can be seen on the game’s Japanese pre-order page. Players will need 8 GB of memory and a 4 GB VRAM GPU like the GTX 1050 TI to run the game at minimum specs. The specs note that 1080p 60 FPS gameplay ill be possible if players tick the “Performance Focus” setting.
Capcom says 16 GB of RAM is required for the reccomended experience, as well as a GTX 1070 for 1080p 60 FPS gameplay with the “Focus on Screen Quality” setting ticked. Naturally, players who want to turn on Ray tracing will need a compatible card. RTX 3070 owners will be able to attain 4K 60 FPS gameplay, for example. You can see the full specs in the tweet below:
