Sony had announced a remake of the spectacular zombie survival horror game Resident Evil 2 at the E3 2018 press conference held early this month. The game is scheduled for release globally on January 25 next year. Sony also showed an extended trailer of the game at the E3 2018 that showed off the game’s characters and the release date. The game is expected to arrive on PC, Xbox One, and the PS4 Gaming consoles. Now the minimum recommended PC specifications of the game has been revealed.
The specifications have been listed on the official Steam landing page of Resident Evil 2. As per the listing, the minimum recommended specifications are Intel Core i5 4460 processor clocked at 2.7GHz or an AMD FX-6300 processor or better. A minimum of 8GB RAM with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or an AMD Radeon R7 260x graphics card with a minimum of 2GB of virtual memory. It also requires DirectX version 11 installed on the PC. Apart from these specifications, Resident Evil 2 will run on a 64bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
A look at these specifications reveals that the game is not very demanding on the resources and many users with mid-end desktops with medium grade graphics and RAM will be able to play the game smoothly. This indicates that the game will be available to a big bunch of gamers when it is released in January. Apart from that many surprises are yet to be revealed by Sony which is likely to happen in the coming months.
“We want fans to see the reimagining of Resident Evil 2 not only captures the magic of the beloved original but also expands it to deliver a richer experience. The first look at E3 is just a taste of what’s to come,” said Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi at the E3 2018 gamers conference held earlier this month.
To recall, Capcom had also released a remake version of the first installment of the game called Resident Evil in 2015. The game was then made available on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PC. So it is expected that Capcom will do the same with Resident Evil 2 and make it available on all the three platforms.
