System requirements revealed

The PC version of Resident Evil 6 won't be launching in North America and Europe until March 22, 2013, Capcom announced today. The release will happen on Steam with the kinds of features one would expect (cloud saving, for instance), and European players will also have the opportunity to grab the divisive "dramatic horror" game on disc.

Either way, everything added by way of free title updates for Resident Evil 6 on consoles will make the cut for PC. Capcom hasn't mentioned anything regarding this version's price, so hopefully we'll be cut some slack with the late release and all. The company did, however, bring its minimum and recommended system specifications.
