System requirements for Resident Evil Village on PC have been revealed. As with past Resident Evil games, Village should run pretty well on lower-powered machines if you're selective with your graphics settings, though players wanting to push the game to its max (especially now that ray tracing is an option) will need a solid rig.

Check out the list of Resident Evil Village PC specs below to see if your machine will be able to run it, and keep reading below that for a more detailed breakdown of what these requirements entail. Don't forget to also check out our Resident Evil Village review.

The list was released on the game's Steam page, while a page on Capcom's Japanese website goes into more detail about requirements for ray tracing. The requirements were announced in a tweet on the game's Japanese Twitter account in March, and picked up on the Resetera forums. Capcom has released three sets of system requirements, listing the minimum, recommended, and recommended for those who want to enable ray tracing.

Resident Evil Village also includes a "Prioritize Performance" mode for those with PCs at the lower end of the spectrum, which will run the game at 1080p/60fps on PCs that reach the minimum benchmark. "Framerate might drop in graphics-intensive scenes," a note on the Steam system requirements reads.

The system requirements on the Japanese page also mention a graphics-focused game mode, which will run the game at 1080p/60fps on PCs that reach the recommended specs. The Japanese post includes an extra column for ray tracing-specific specs not found on the English Steam page.
