Recap: Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2 isn’t scheduled to arrive until early 2019 which, depending on how you perceive things, could play in your favor.

A profile for Resident Evil 2 recently cropped up over on Steam and with it comes our first look at the highly anticipated game’s minimum and recommended hardware specifications for PC. Fortunately, you won’t need a super stout machine to run the remake.

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4660, 2.70GHz or AMD FX-6300 or better
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x with 2GB Video RAM
  • DirectX: Version 11

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64-bit required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-9590 or better
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480 with 3GB RAM
  • DirectX: Version 11

The Steam listing has the game priced at $59.99 for the standard edition and $69.99 for the deluxe edition. That’s a bit more expensive than I would have guessed for a remake but perhaps the improvements will warrant the cost. The deluxe edition includes the main game and the Extra DLC Pack that comes with the following items:

  • Leon Costume: "Arklay Sheriff"
  • Leon Costume: "Noir"
  • Claire Costume: "Military"
  • Claire Costume: "Noir"
  • Claire Costume: "Elza Walker"
  • Deluxe Weapon: "Samurai Edge - Albert Model"
  • "Original Ver." Soundtrack Swap

The Resident Evil 2 remake arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on January 25, 2019.
