Resident Evil Village System Requirements Announced – GeForce Raytracing Confirmed

As the May 7th release date comes closer and closer, more details continue to emerge about Resident Evil Village, the next iteration in the ever popular survival horror franchise.

Only recently, we got a glimpse of what the upcoming title will look like using raytracing on AMD cards. With the release of the official system requirements over on the game’s Steam page, previous speculation about support for raytracing also on GeForce cards now seems to be confirmed.

As seems obvious from the footage we have seen thus far, the game will be a tad more taxing on machines than its predecessor but should be forgiving enough, so even machines that aren’t high-end can find settings that will make the game playable.

These are the official requirements:

  • MINIMUM:
      • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
      • OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)
      • Processor: Intel Core i5-7500 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200
      • Memory: 8 GB RAM
      • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB VRAM / AMD Radeon RX 560 with 4GB VRAM
      • DirectX: Version 12
  • RECOMMENDED:
      • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
      • OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)
      • Processor: Intel Core i7 8700 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600
      • Memory: 16 GB RAM
      • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX 5700
      • DirectX: Version 12

However, there are also some, “additional notes,” pointing out that these specs are for an, “estimated performance ” at 1080p resolution at 60fps, hinting at an even more taxing mode for prioritizing quality. To be on the safe side, it’s also mentioned that users might still experience fps drops in graphics-intensive scenes.

The interesting bit in regard to raytracing is the following:

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT required to support ray tracing.

This seemingly does confirm support for raytracing not only on AMD cards but on Nvidia’s GeForce lineup as well.

Resident Evil Village is due to launch on May 7th, 2021 for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
