Check the PC Specs for Resident Evil 6 Using Capcom’s New App

If you’re considering picking up Resident Evil 6 on the PC, Nvidia and Capcom released the official Resident Evil 6 benchmark program today.  This will be able to tell potential players how the much maligned game will run on their Windows machines.

Here’s a quick rundown of the minimum system requirements as a quick reference: 

  • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz or AMD Athlon X2 2.8 Ghz processor with 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of free hard drive space
  • Nvidia GeForce 8800GTS.

You can download the app from Nvidia’s Resident Evil 6 website to see how your PC stacks up.  It doesn’t seem to be too heavy on the hardware so that may help it move some units.

Capcom revealed this system testing program, in a press release last month, that also detailed the PC version’s exclusive mode called The Mercenaries: No Mercy.  This new Mercenaries mode would include extra enemies and more opportunities to earn higher scores than its console counterparts.

It also comes with a multiplayer mode called Siege, which pits two teams against each other with an AI-controlled agent in between. These are some neat additions that I’d like to see come to the consoles in the future as DLC. Anything to extend the life of a game, right Capcom?

Resident Evil 6 is available on Windows PC for $39.99. The multiplayer modes will be available “shortly after” today.
