The Resident Evil 2 system requirements have undergone some changes since the horror game remake shambled its way on to gaming PCs back in 2019. This is due to an upgrade patch that introduces ray tracing and several other features but also axes support for DirectX 11, leading to a slight bump up in the minimum specs.

Now, the Resident Evil 2 system requirements demand you install Windows 11 or 10 in addition to equipping your rig with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 460 GPU or newer. However, you’ll need one of the best graphics cards on hand to enjoy the game’s ray tracing options.

Thankfully, there are no other differences lurking within the refreshed Resident Evil 2 system requirements, meaning most people shouldn’t even notice these behind the scenes changes. Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 7 have also received the same upgrade treatment, and so you’ll need the same specs listed here to run those games too.

Here are the Resident Evil 2 system requirements:
