The Resident Evil Village system requirements are in via Capcom's website.

Along with the usual minimum specs needed to achieve certain frame rates and resolutions, Capcom has also provided recommended specs if you want ray tracing enabled too.

The minimum requirements look fairly tame, and PC gamers with older graphics cards will be thrilled to know that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is still going strong five years after launch, able to play Resident Evil Village at 1080p and 60fps if you set the game up to prioritize performance.

However, to witness the game in all its 4K glory then you’re going to need a much beefier rig though, with an Intel I7 8700 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 being the bare minimum for 4K/45fps gaming. 

Lady Dimitrescu is used to living the high life by the looks of things though and we’re not sure we’d want to insult her with anything but the best... not unless you want the claws to come out. Better get an RTX 3070 to be safe.

That ominous little TBD by the storage requirements might have some people feeling more unnerved than the spooky vampire lady, but it almost certainly isn't going to something to worry about it. We saw some leaks around the Resident Evil Village install size on the PS5 and Xbox Series X a couple of weeks ago that suggested somewhere between 25-50GB for the current-gen consoles, and we can’t see the PC version being much bigger than that.

Resident Evil Village launches on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC on May 8.
