Resident Evil Village was shown for the first time in all its beauty on PC in a video released during the revelation event of the new AMD RX 6700 XT GPU, officially announcing that the title will fully support ray tracing technology.
During the presentation, only a short clip of the ray tracing of the game in action was shown, but from this first glance that is offered to us the expectations are very high and we can expect to see some wonderful reflections on the floors and on the shiny and precious materials of the marvelous and suggestive home of Lady Dimitrescu when the game is released on May 7, 2021.
At the moment there are few details on the technical specifications necessary to be able to fully experience the new chapter of the famous Capcom survival horror series, but judging by those that have been simply recommended by AMD at the moment, it seems that the graphics quality is really well-maintained.
The quality of the images shown seems decidedly better than what we have seen so far on the new Sony platform, PlayStation 5. AMD is currently recommending its flagship RX 6800 XT to play with ray tracing enabled, along with a Ryzen 5 1600 CPU.
As for gaming without ray tracing enabled, AMD is currently recommending an RX 5700 XT graphics card and the same Ryzen 5 1600 CPU. Furthermore, it is currently unclear whether Resident Evil Village ray tracing support will also be available on Nvidia RTX cards, as Nvidia has yet to officially announce this information.
Resident Evil Village is certainly one of the most anticipated video games of the year, and we remind you that its release is currently scheduled for this May 7, 2021, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
