Resident Evil 3 Remake PC System Requirements Revealed
There has been a whirlwind of news (and speculation) surrounding the recent announcement of Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 Remake, and now the minimum PC specs that players will need have been revealed. There’s no word yet on what the game’s recommended specs will be, but at the very least excited fans will know whether or not their machines can handle the game.
The Resident Evil 3 Remake has been on fans’ minds since before it was officially announced; the game’s existence was actually leaked before Sony could break the news during its State of Play. In the following weeks, Capcom released a few trailers and confirmed the return of a couple of characters from the original game before finally announcing its minimum specs.
As it turns out, the Resident Evil 3 Remake‘s specs aren’t all that different from the Resident Evil 2 Remake release earlier this year, so players should already have an idea of how the game will run if they’ve played RE2. This makes sense: RE2 and RE3 run on the same engines and visually appear quite similar, so players with less-powerful PCs don’t have to worry. If they can run RE2, they can run RE3 too. Either way, RE3‘s minimum requirements include 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8.1, or 10, and at least 8 GB of system RAM; the full specs can be found below.
Resident Evil 3 Remake Minimum System Requirements:
- Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
- OS: WINDOWS® 7, 8.1, 10 (64-BIT Required)
- Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4460 or AMD FX™-6300 or better
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760 or AMD Radeon™ R7 260x with 2GB Video RAM
- DirectX: Version 11
Given all that, the Resident Evil 2 Remake‘s recommended specs are probably a decent starting point for players too–and those specs included a Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-9590 or better and also 8 GB of RAM. After the success of the RE2 Remake, selling nearly 5 million copies, most Resident Evil fans suspected it was only a matter of time before a remake of RE3 (and other entries in the series) came to fruition.
Upon its release, the Resident Evil 3 Remake will also come bundled with Resident Evil Resistance, an asymmetrical multiplayer game set in the same universe, which Capcom designed in the same vein as Dead By Daylight and similar titles.

The Resident Evil 3 Remake will release on April 3, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
