Resident Evil 3 Remake Game Details

  • Release date: April 3rd, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
  • System Requirements: Medium-High
  • Genre: Survival Horror
  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom

Previously released in 1999 on PlayStation, Resident Evil 3 was the third installment in the popular Resident Evil series, following on from the story of the previous game. Twenty years later, this game has been remade for fans of the series to enjoy a new and improved version.

The story follows Jill Valentine who attempts to escape from Racoon city which is infected with a biological weapon known as the T-Virus. This virus has turned the population into zombies which you must fight against to survive. 

Jill is also up against a creature called Nemesis, a bio-organic weapon created to target members of the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S). 

The remake follows the same story but with a massive overhaul and improvement in the graphics. Characters have been redesigned, including Jill and Nemesis, who have brand new looks. 

Another new feature is Resident Evil 3’s new multiplayer mode. Previously announced under a cryptic Project Resistance, Capcom eventually confirmed that this wouldn’t be a standalone game but would function as Resident Evil 3’s multiplayer version where you will be able to play in the Resident Evil world with friends in a four versus one gameplay experience.

Optimal Hardware Suggestions

As we don’t yet have confirmation of the official system requirements, the above is a prediction. We think it will be close to this when they’re finally announced, based on previously remade games in the Resident Evil series. 

As in all cases, we would always recommend aiming for the recommended requirements rather than the absolute minimum. If you’re a fan of the series and want to experience the new and improved graphics, you won’t get the full benefit if you’re running on a system that struggles with this title. 

With mid to high requirements such as these, we would advise you err on the side of caution and go for a PC build that can comfortably run not only this title but other high-spec titles. 

If you go by the recommended requirements, we believe this will land you a solid 60 FPS experience with a decent screen resolution of 1080p with the settings on high. Going for the minimum requirements will see a frame rate drop to around 30 FPS, running on 720p resolution – but the settings might need to be dialed down to achieve this. 

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

If you’re on the lookout for a PC build that can cope with Resident Evil 3’s new system requirements, we recommend aiming for our $800 PC build.

Of course, this will also be down to some speculation but the below build should be able to run the game comfortably with ultra settings at a resolution above 1080p and a consistent FPS count above 60 FPS.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1660 Super

If you really want to aim high and invest in a solid PC build that runs a number of high-spec games, then take a look at our high-end $1000 PC build. This includes an upgraded GPU to the XFX RX 5700 XT Thicc III Ultra 8GB which is a solid choice for serious PC gamers.
