Resident Evil 7: Biohazard PC Requirements Arrive

The official Steam listing for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has been updated to include PC requirements, courtesy of Capcom.

It’s unusual for a developer to release PC requirements so early. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is still four months away from release. The usual trend sees developers tinker with the game until the last month to ensure it’s fully optimized with a majority of hardware out there. Perhaps this can give closure to the PC-base that the developer is confident there will be no compatibility or technical issues at launch.

As for the requirements, nothing seems out of the ordinary. Any system built within the last three or four years should be able to comfortably play the game at high settings. That being said, those looking to run the game in glorious 4K resolution will of course require significant horsepower to ensure smooth-play.

Minimum 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. *Internet connection required for game activation. The game is still undergoing development, so all PC requirements are subject to change.

Capcom has promised support for PlayStation VR but it’s uncertain whether the developer will be making the game comptaible with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as well.
