Resident Evil 7 is getting closer and closer to its PC release and, judging from early impressions published on various sites online, the switch from third person somehow managed to reinvent the horror genre and deliver an amazing experience to fans of the franchise (and not only). With such – surprising, I would add – praise surrounding the game, you definitely wonder if your computer can handle it and we’re here to let you know by sharing the Resident Evil 7 system requirements.

We have both the minimum Resident Evil 7 system requirements, as well as the recommended ones to share below and there are also some interesting notes on the official release that we’ll have to talk a bit more in detail later. But until then, here are the sys specs your computer needs to run the game:

Resident Evil 7 Minimum System Requirements

– OS: WINDOWS 7,8,8.1,10 64-BIT
– Processor: Intel Core i5-4460, 2.70GHz or AMD FX-6300 or better
– Memory: 8 GB RAM
– Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x
– DirectX: Version 11
– Additional Notes: 1080P CPU/GPU at 30FPS Players will have to either lower texture or set streaming textures to OFF in order to optimize performance.

Resident Evil 7 Recommended System Requirements

– OS: WINDOWS 7,8,8.1,10 64-BIT
– Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 3.4GHz or AMD or better
– Memory: 8 GB RAM
– Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 280X or better
– DirectX: Version 11
– Additional Notes: “1080P CPU/GPU at 60FPS *Internet connection required for game activation. The game is still undergoing development, so all PC requirements are subject to change.”

The interesting part comes from the “Additional notes” from the minimum requirements. Does this mean that there’s no support for anything lower than 1080p in order to get an extra performance boost? Or it’s just the good news that even the minimum requirements can produce 1080p images? I believe that it’s the latter and you’ll still have the chance to lower the resolution to increase performance if you want to.

Here’s the official presentation of the game, in case you need more details about the upcoming game:

Players experience the terror directly from the first person perspective for the first time in the Resident Evil series. Embodying the iconic gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined “survival horror” some twenty years ago, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard delivers a disturbingly realistic experience that will define the next era in horror entertainment. Returning to the series roots, signature gameplay features including exploration, puzzles and a realistic tense atmosphere awaits players. The classic inventory system returns but with limited space meaning players must choose what they carry with them carefully, making sure they remember to pack their green herbs!

The game launches in January 2017 and, judging from the system requirements that have just been released, some people might have to upgrade their PC in order to be able to fully enjoy the game.
