This means Village works pretty well on most platforms, which also means you don't need the very best graphics card to run the game. You can just use the preset settings and start playing right away, or tinker a bit to get the picture and performance that suits you best.


Ready presets

Instead of the usual low to high presets, Resident Evil Village offers six options to choose from. They all pretty much do what the title says. They are provided with descriptions to help you select the correct one for your system. However, you will have to choose from the main menu, since the game will not allow you to change presets while in the process of shooting opponents.


  • Recommended - sets all parameters automatically depending on the available video memory on your video card. Takes up 5.78 GB, but does not always provide optimal settings;

  • Balance - average result, balances graphics and performance, 4–8 GB of video memory is recommended. Installs 4.82 GB VRAM;
