Will the RE3 remake run on your PC? Find out below.

Resident Evil 3 Remake is out later this week and as you might imagine, the system requirements don't differ that much from from 2019's Resident Evil 2 Remake. Here we've gathered both the minimum specs necessary to run the game on PC and the recommended specs to play at higher settings.

If your machine had no problem running the RE2 remake, then you should experience the same kind of performance since the two remakes share nearly identical requirements. That's true of the recommended specs as well. The biggest difference between system requirements is that Resident Evil 3 is a much larger game in terms of storage requirements, demanding 45GB over Resident Evil 2's 26GB. That's most likely because the RE3 remake comes packaged with Resident Evil Resistance, a new 4v1 asymmetrical online multiplayer experience.

Check out the minimum and recommended specs below, taken from Resident Evil 3's official Steam page.
