Resident Evil 3 remake was recently shown off by Capcom and it's only a few months away. Ahead of the game's release, the Steam page has been updated, showing the minimum requirements you'll need in order to run the game.

  • OS: WINDOWS 7, 8.1, 10 (64-BIT Required)

  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260x with 2GB Video RAM

Resident Evil 3 remake is a fully remade version of the original game, with a third-person camera perspective and other changes, all built in the RE engine. In Resident Evil 3, players take on the role of Jill Valentine as she's attempting to get out of Raccoon City, all while being pursued by the horrific, unstoppable Nemesis. It also includes a new multiplayer title, Resident Evil Resistance, a 1v4 game where four players have to confront an evil Mastermind.
