The Resident Evil 4 Remake is right around the corner. Can your PC run it?

Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 remake is coming out on March 24 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. If you’re playing the game on your console of choice, it’s as easy as inserting the disc and installing the game or downloading it from your console’s storefront. If you’re playing on PC, however, you’ll need to make sure your machine can run it before you buy it. Luckily, we’ve got the system requirements (courtesy of the game’s Steam page) to help you out.
